Calling all amateur astronomers. NASA needs you!
The space agency wants your help discovering new asteroids and studying their characteristics.
Wednesday, NASA launched a new project called "Target Asteroids!"
The goal is to get more details about asteroids called near-Earth objects or N-E-Os.
Scientists want to know more about N-E-Os' positions, motion, rotation and light emissions.
The project will support NASA's Regolith Explorer mission, scheduled for launch in
2016, that will study material from an asteroid.
