Are you a serious amateur astronomer who enjoys the challenge of following up on the discoveries of faint near-Earth objects? Would an upgrade to your equipment make you more productive? Then propose for the 2010 round of The Planetary Society's Shoemaker Near-Earth Object Grant Program, launched today. This program counts as one of the Society's greatest successes, where a relatively small amount of money provided entirely by donations from our generous members has made a big difference in our knowledge of the hazards in the space environment near Earth.
The due date for proposals is June 10, 2010.

Fifteen years ago, Society members and passionate space advocates like you helped save the Pluto mission. Now we can do the same for missions to Europa and Mars.
