Your opinions about Asteroids@home
I like Asteroids@home because, beyond the obvious reason of developing a defense against a major strike, I suspect that there is a wealth of resources to be found in them.

I feel this project is important primarily if mankind ever does attain true space travel, these objects and millions of others are going to need to be mapped. Several of the other BOINC projects are equally important for the same reason. It may not be clear as yet how all these projects will play into such a scenario, but having this data processed and recorded cannot hurt. It may all start with us. Perhaps mankind will not destroy itself beforehand. MWP
