Earth mini-moons: Potential for exciting scientific and commercial opportunities: Detection of small asteroids temporarily captured in orbit around Earth will provide an opportunity to increase our knowledge of asteroids and test space-faring technology

The detection of 'mini-moons' -- small asteroids temporarily captured in orbit around Earth -- will vastly improve our scientific understanding of asteroids and the Earth-moon system. Small and fast-moving, they have evaded detection by existing technology, with only one confirmed mini-moon discovery to date.
