Update on Results for Planetary Society's Apophis Mission Design Competition

I talked to Bruce Betts, Director of Projects for the Planetary Society, at the recent Space Investment Summit (SIS) 3 in San Jose, California. He said that the judging of their Apophis Mission Design Competition is taking a little longer. Whereas the original schedule called for winners to be announced in the middle of December, he stated that the current plan calls for an announcement in January 2008.
