    Comments: NEOSSAT is the first space telescope designed to search for hazardous Earth-crossing asteroids. The $24 million NEOSSat mission will scan the sky for asteroids lurking near Earth, including objects orbiting close to the sun, making their discoveries challenging for traditional ground-based telescopes. Engineers outfitted the suitcase-sized satellite with a baffle to allow the telescope to point closer to the sun than other observatories. Astronomers will try to pick out asteroids as they streak through a matrix of stars, detecting between four and 12 500-meter, or 1,640-foot, asteroids each month, plus smaller objects.
