NASA’s audacious plan to grab an asteroid and park it near the moon is short on candidate space rocks at the moment, one researcher says.

It’s possible that not a single known object meets the current criteria of NASA’s asteroid redirect mission(ARM), astrodynamical consultant Dan Adamo said during a presentation with NASA’s Future In-Space Operations working group on Wednesday (June 12).

To pull the mission off in a timelyfashion, Adamo added, it may be necessary to mount a dedicated, space-based asteroid survey in the near future or consider snagging a chunk of a larger asteroid rather than returning an entire (relatively small) space rock.

Revelation 19:16
On his robe and on his thigh he has this name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.
This blog is to present Up To Date Prophetic News. My prayer is that this blog will bring others to know Jesus as their Savior if they do not know him the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
