Association of Space Explorers (ASE) and NEOs

The NEO Committee (basically led by Rusty Schweickart) of the Association of Space Explorers (organization of those people who have gone in space) has several documents related to the recent United States COPUOS meeting including the presentation given at the U.N. meeting, synopsis and actual paper behind the presentation. I have also included links to their previous open letter on NEOs and their Report to the Royal Aeronautical Society.
