    Near-Earth Object Survey Act. U.S. Representative George E. Brown, Jr. (D-CA) was quoted as voicing his support for planetary defense projects in Air & Space Power Chronicles, saying "If some day in the future we discover well in advance that an asteroid that is big enough to cause a mass extinction is going to hit the Earth, and then we alter.   Because of Congressman Brown's long-standing commitment to planetary defense, a U.S. House of Representatives' bill, H.R. , was named in his honor: The George E. Brown, Jr. Near-Earth Object Survey Act. This bill "to provide for a Near-Earth Object Survey program to detect, track, catalogue, and characterize certain near-Earth asteroids and Author: David J Strumfels.

    The committee also recommended that “if NASA develops a space-based infrared near Earth object (NEO) survey telescope, it should also continue to fund both short- and long-term ground-based observations to refine the orbits and physical properties of NEOs to assess the risk they might pose to Earth, and to achieve the George E.

Worse, NEO-tracking Arecibo Radio Telescope is set to be mothballed by Hazards: An early survey could fulfill the Congressional mandate to find 90% of m diameter NEOs within 15 years (George E.
