is introducing a new Web site that will provide a centralized resource
for information on these near-Earth objects - those asteroids and
comets that can approach Earth. The "Asteroid Watch" site also contains
links for the interested public to sign up for NASA's new asteroid
widget and Twitter account.
It provides information on NASA's missions to study comets, asteroids
and near-Earth objects, and also provides the basic facts and the very
latest in science
and research on these objects. News about near-Earth object discoveries
and Earth flybys will be available and made accessible on the site via
a downloadable widget and RSS feed.
