All observations contribute to the Near Earth Object (NEO) data compiled by NASA and Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL). Students got the exciting opportunity to work with professional astronomers and access real astronomy data. They were exposed to research in this field, all of which is usually available to post graduate students.
