Check this novel out:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2312_%28novel%29

It contains impressive ideas about how asteroids could be used.

Thank you very much for your kind reply.

I appreciate your explanations (when demanded) very much, in fact they are one of the reasons why I support this project.

Maybe i expressed myself unclear - sorry.
I would really like to know why the NASA lacks knowledge (spin&shape of asteroids) when we could deliver it.
AFAIK are we able to calculate the relevant parameters using the lightcurve inversion method - as long as there was a sufficient number of lightcurves observed. To be honest, i think thats the whole purpose of the project?

Because i know that many unnecessary work (everywhere) is done because of the lack of contact, communication and cooperation, i would like following to know:
Are there any reasons why it shouldn't be a good idea to contact the NASA staff and tell them about A@H?
Wouldn't it be a good idea when such a contact would be initiated by a qualified person?

Or is the lightcurve inversion method not accurate enough? Is it to ineffective?

Would Mr. Durech be so kind to explain that to me? That would be very nice.

Erm...sounds conclusive, but shouldn't Kyong have noticed anything?
Because he is not only the Admin of the project, he is also member of CNT.
I'm sure he has already checked out?

This could be important for A@H

I've read in a german newspaper that only 14 objects have fitting trajectories for the announced mission to redirect an asteroid.
But there seems to be still a lack of knowledge about spin and shape of ten of these objects.

Especially a slow spin would be important for a fitting target, because a faster spin could crash the robot.
I've asked myself:

- Are these informations (spin&shape of asteroids) not especially products of A@H's research?
- couldn't we provide NASA with the demanded informations (i think 10 asteroids are ~ 3000 WUs)?
- wouldn't it be good to contact these NASA guys? (these seem to be the qualified contacts, especially Paul Chodas
http://neocam.ipac.caltech.edu/page/team)

If A@H could make contact and, maybe, an agreement, this could result in a huge boost for the project.

Am I wrong?
9) Message boards : Number crunching : Question About Deadlines. (Message 1416)
Posted 29 Jul 2013 by cykodennis
In a nutshell they are for organizing distributed computing.

F.e. each WU is at least crunched by two hosts. When Host A finishes his WU within two weeks but Host B needs six months, credit for Host A would be pending until Host B has finished its work.

Deadlines simply make sure that the work will be done. Compare it with a factory.
And of course, sometimes the scientists need to get their numbers in time too.

If you miss a deadline, you'll be able to finish the WU, but you won't get any credit for it. That's because the project server guesses your WU is lost and send it already to another host.

You just start?
Well, maybe you reach the point of answer. Hint: It has something to do with patience.
And the lack of it.

There are simply to many people on this planet who call truth "venom" or something like that. And they act like that.
You wouldn't believe it: There are even people who produce nuclear waste just for collecting points, erm...waiting for E.T. to contact them.

Don't take it personally. You are just an example. You have even left your role of the deeply insulted victim.
I have a deep feeling for another truth (you would call it venom):
If ever any aliens contact us, they will search for people like dagorath. Not you. Sorry.

how many WUs does it take to get to the list ? :)

My idea was related to the sound of his name.
In Germany his name is "Dagobert". Sounds a little like your brother :)

I guess you reach the same goal by correcting the orbits of all threating asteroids.
In most cases, you won't even need explosives. Throw white paint on em and the sun will alter their orbits.

Don't forget that space is huge. I mean..damn, huge! We don't need to destroy them, we just need to know them.

Thanks, it has its roots in Wintermute, Marx and Infected Mushroom.
