US Military wants help from YOU and all "Amateur Telescopes" to look at space for "debris"?Perhaps you will win a room in the "ARK/DUMB" for being the Planet X fall guy? i mean discoverer!

Just like the movies amateur astronomer finds Doom while star gazing and junk hunting....


excerpt:

" The U.S. military is launching a far-out neighborhood watch. But instead of warding off burglars, these amateur watchdogs are tracking orbital debris and possible satellite collisions in Earth orbit.
The sky-monitoring project, called SpaceView, is a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) program that enrolls the talents of amateur astronomers to help protect American space assets from orbital trash. "

Distributed problem solving. Just like the German institute, I think, that made a "game" out of either folding or unfolding a protein, can't remember which. But they put it on the web, invited people to "play," and the players solved the problem in amazingly short time. So maybe this isn't all that sinister.

This seems highly fishy to me, especially since we have the handy dandy space fence here in the good 'ol USA run by the air force. What I cannot figure out is why they want amateurs tracking space debris when the space fence can track objects as small as four inches at a height up to 15,000 nautical miles.
