NEOCC inaugThe 22th May 2013 took place the inauguration of the Data Center NEOCC – at ESRIN, Frascati. This is the first European ESA’s NEOCC hub for gathering NEO data produced by institutes across Europe and for the coordination of the activities related to the potentially hazardous asteroids for the Earth. SpaceDyS and University of Pisa are giving a valid contribution in the NEODyS orbit propagation system, which computes precise orbits and predicts potential impacts for the next 100 years. SpaceDyS has a primary role in the new NEOCC management.
