The Anglo-Australian Near-Earth Asteroid Survey (AANEAS) operated from 1990-96, becoming one of the most prolific programs of its type in the world. Apart from leading to the discovery of 38 near-Earth asteroids, 9 comets, 63 supernovae, several other astronomical phenomena and the delivery of a substantial proportion of all NEA astrometry obtained worldwide (e.g., 30% in 1994-95), AANEAS also led to many other scientific advances which were reported in the refereed literature.
Famous quotes containing the word survey:
“When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.”
—Isaac Watts (16741748)
