Think you can't participate in space exploration? Think again.
New Horizons is a NASA craft en route to Pluto and points beyond. (New Horizons has a Facebook page and a Twitter handle: FB - http://www.facebook.com/home.php#!/new.horizons1 Twitter - @newhorizons2015)
It's the 'points beyond' Pluto that bring me here today. Astronomers are asking for help in identifying potential asteroid bodies for New Horizons to visit. If you go to http://www.icehunters.org and log in, you can help mark asteroids in telescope images. From the marked images, NASA will pick a couple of asteroids for a New Horizons visit after its Pluto flyby. You will need IE 9 in order to view and mark the images. Go forth and ID asteroids. The one NASA picks may be yours.
