Waiting for Public Release of NASA Report to Congress on NEOs

Many of us are waiting for the public release of the December 2006 NASA report to congress on the next generation NEO search, characterization, and mitigation. This report should be delivered to Congress and hopefully both the executive summary and full report will be available from NASA sometime soon.

Both Lindley Johnson (NASA Headquarters) and Donald Yeomans (NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory) are scheduled to talk about this report at the upcoming 2007 Planetary Defense Conference.
