    The X-ray/Gamma-ray Spectrometer on the Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous spacecraft is a remote sensing instrument designed to develop elemental composition maps of the surface of the asteroid Eros. This mapping operation will occur during about 10 Cited by: 5. Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous (NEAR) Mission The most extensive study of any minor body to date was provided by NEAR-Shoemaker, which entered orbit around the asteroid Eros on Febru It transmitted thousands of images of the asteroid plus extensive measurements of its shape, composition, and gravity.

    The Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous (NEAR) Mission began its record setting exploration of the asteroid Eros by inserting the NEAR spacecraft into orbit about Eros on Febru The NEAR mission has overcome a failed insertion burn attempt on Decem , an event that would have ended most planetary missions, to return to the. These 14 radar images show the near-Earth asteroid Didymos () and its moonlet as seen by the Arecibo Observatory radio telescope in Puerto Rico in November (Image credit: NASA).

    successful mission has provided a new wealth of discoveries in the field of asteroid science and has led to new lines of thought about asteroids, their formation, and their evolution. INTRODUCTION The Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous (NEAR) mis-sion was a science mission of many historical firsts. Launched on 17 February , it was the first in. Mission Overview The Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous (NEAR) mission was the first launch in the Discovery Program, a NASA initiative for small planetary missions with a maximum 3-year development cycle and a cost capped at $ million for construction, launch, and 30 days of NEAR mission was managed for NASA by the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, Laurel.
