Just out of curiosity. Has asteroid 2006 DP14 been processed already, and how well did the process match the radar image?

No, this one hasn't been processed yet. Even if it was, we wouldn't get any shape model because there are too few photometric data points available.

Yes, Josef... not enough data on this one. Not enough on the entire asteroid belt, indeed, as we're finding... hundreds per day? So much to do with this project yet :) I'm glad to be back with it. Knowledge is power...

...Because there are other Челябинск asteroids out there (Russian city- figure it out, get a gold star) :p Lots of them, guaranteed. And only by the grace of God did that one explode high enough up not to nuke that city. Anything we can learn is great... :D
