Watchdog criticizes NASA asteroid-tracking program

By

An internal watchdog office criticized NASA’s efforts to track and respond to potentially dangerous asteroids in a report released on Monday.

According to the report, the agency’s program that tracks objects that could cause regional devastation if they hit Earth was not well integrated and lacked proper oversight. NASA has promised to fix the problems within a year.
