Capture-the-Asteroid Competition 2017

 

Today, I received a delivery of a box with an unknown content.  I didn’t think I had any outstanding orders to receive, so it was a puzzle.  But when I saw it was from Airbus Defence and Space GmbH, I remembered what it was.  It was a gift from Airbus Defence for my submission of an image of asteroid Florence for their competition “Capture-the-Asteroid 2017”.  It was judged to be 5th place. My pictures submitted are linked below to my original post of titled "Asteroid Florence 3 Sept 2017".  The gift is a nice mug with the NEOShield-2 logo and an asteroid approaching the Earth. It was all a pleasant surprise.  I suppose I should get a pic taken of me with the cup. 

 

Pictures of their top three are shown in the second NEOShield link below

Thank you Martyn.  It's a nice feeling. I never got any nice recognition in my last years of working hard in my job, so this is a lovely thing to happen and encourages me to experiment more.
