Quote of the Day:
Things don’t ‘fall’ normally around small cosmic bodies. The local gravity is so low that any lateral velocity has an exaggerated effect. The behavior of objects around asteroids is counter-intuitive, if not absolutely chaotic. Because of this low gravity, we B612’ers talk about ‘docking with’ a near Earth object and not ‘landing on’ one.
Russell Schweickart, former Apollo astronaut and B612 Foundation chairman
