Big Projects - Big Scopes

Today has been another very interesting day. Our team imaged Comet 213P, which turned out to have lost its fragments, but gained an asteroid in the field of view, so that was a bit of a result...but the interesting discussions (between returning some review kit to magazines and suppliers) turned out to be an email exchange with a team working in the Canary Islands on NEO and asteroid imaging, who'd like (we hope) to team up with our team using the twin Faulkes scopes. The amazing number of doors that open when you focus on just doing good work and science, trying where possible to motivate younger people, is, frankly incredible. So...watch this space, there may be some big collaborations coming soon...
