NASA asteroid defense system a failure

A program was mandated by Congress in 2005 to detect and track at least 90 percent near-Earth objects greater than 460 feet (140 meters) in diameter by 2020. According to an audit, the program has only mapped about 10% of the objects and won't make the deadline. #tech
