A couple of recent TMRO short video reports:

** SpacePod: An Interstellar Asteroid? HUH??? 

A bizarre, truly one of a kind object has been spotted by the PANSTARRS telescope. PANSTARRS, standing for Panoramic Survey Telescope and Rapid Response System, this telescope specifically looks for near-Earth objects. The data from observations of this object, initially known as C/2017 U1, made no sense!

** SpacePod: Possibly Innovative Clustering Satellites to be tested at ISS

Last week, astronauts on board the International Space Station linked NovaWurks’ spacecraft building blocks in the first on-orbit test of a radically new approach to satellite design and manufacturing.
