The grand challenge

The Grand Challenge

NASA Asteroid Initiative Idea Synthesis •• #AsteroidGC

Find all asteroid threats to

human populations

and know what to do about them


Fy14 asteroid initiative what and how

FY14 Asteroid Initiative: What and How

Asteroid Initiative

Asteroid Grand Challenge

Asteroid Mission

Enhanced NEO Observation Campaign

Robotic Mission to Redirect an Asteroid, SEP

Diverse Stakeholder Engagement

Learning how to manipulate and interact with a NEA

Human Mission to an Asteroid

Mitigation Approaches

Both sets of activities leverage existing NASA work while amplifying participatory engagement to accomplish their individual objectives and synergize for a greater collective purpose. This session is focused on how citizen science and crowdsourcing can assist in the components of the Grand Challenge.


Goals of session

Goals of Session

This session seeks to begin the discussion with the global community about crowdsourcing and citizen science as they relate to the asteroid grand challenge. This input will inform the beginnings of a co-created, community implementation plan.

Share ideas for how crowdsourcing and citizen science might contribute to the Grand Challenge

Discuss overlaps and synergies between presented ideas

Discuss specific areas where crowdsourcing and citizen science can meaningfully augment current observation work in the short, medium, and long term

Discuss barriers to these types of projects and strategies for overcoming those barriers

Capture notes in the grand challenge wiki being developed to preserve knowledge and brainstorming

Working definitions

Working Definitions

  • Citizen Science is a form of collaboration where members of the public participate in scientific research to meet real world goals. The value of citizen science for producing scientific data and educating volunteers is well-established. Citizen science is also considered a paradigm where the needs and activities of an engaged public are intertwined with professional scientific research. Related terms include public participation in scientific research, volunteer monitoring, and participatory action research.

  • Crowdsourcing isa process where individuals or organizations solicit contributions from a large group of unknown individuals (“the crowd”) or, in some cases, a bounded group of trusted individuals or experts.

    • Crowdsourcing can results in a number of products, services, ideas, or content.

    • Contributors to crowdsourcing projects may or may not be domain experts, and may or may not be paid for their efforts.

    • Crowdsourcing often occurs online, and employs a piecemeal approach where different individuals contribute small portions to a final project or product (“microtasking”).

  • CrowdsourcedScience is a method of soliciting contributions from a large group of people to accomplish scientific goals. Crowdsourced science typically designates a relatively limited and short-term involvement that exists primarily or exclusively online.

What to expect

What to Expect

  • Majority of presenters are presenting virtually

  • Questions and relevant discussion immediately after each presenter

  • After all presenters share their ideas, the in-room discussion will address outstanding questions and the initial discussion topics

  • Share what you’re learning:

Synthesis and discussion

Synthesis and Discussion

Address additional questions about presented ideas for how crowdsourcing and citizen science might contribute to “finding all asteroid threats to human populations and knowing what to do about them.”

Discuss overlaps and synergies between presented ideas

Discuss specific areas where crowdsourcing, citizen science projects and the work of amateur astronomers can meaningfully augment current observation work in the short, medium, and long term

Discuss barriers to these types of projects and strategies for overcoming those barriers

Next steps

Next Steps

Utilize the wiki to further develop and continue to share your ideas

Participate in the Planetary Resources Inc.–NASA Asteroid Zoo early next as the first serious way to contribute to the execution of the Asteroid Grand Challenge

Look for the Asteroid Grand Challenge Virtual Seminar Series to begin early next year

Participate in the virtual Maker Meet-ups we plan to begin early next year

Look for the Asteroid Grand Challenge at the Maker Faire in San Mateo and some exciting challenges leading up to the event

Let us know how you and your communities want to participate because this is OUR Grand Challenge

Spread the word!
