Space Junk Podcast #93.

One of the most important activities that professional astronomers are engaged in is looking for asteroids out there that might hit the Earth and in THAT task, they can use all the help they can get.

With today's amateur equipment it is now possible to engage in professional-level sky searches for asteroids that help keep tabs on all the big rocks out in the solar system, some of which are potentially hazardous to us.

Mike Forslund, aka Asteroid Hunters has set up an automated system in his driveway that assists astronomers in locating and tracking asteroids. In this episode, Mike updates us on what's changed for him (turns out it's a lot!) since our last time together.
