WISE Recruited to Search for Near Earth Objects (NEOs)

The search for potentially hazardous NEOs has increased since the incident at Chelyabinsk, and in June 2013, the 10,000th NEO was detected. NASA reactivated the WISE telescope in September to find new NEOs, aiming to discover 150 such objects by the end of the spacecraft’s life cycle.
