The Asteroid Retrieval and Utilization (ARU) mission, also known as the Asteroid Initiative, is a future space mission by NASA. The ARU is a mission to bring a small near-Earth asteroid into lunar orbit, where it could be further analyzed both by unmanned craft and by a future manned mission

NASA TV coverage of the partnerships & participatory engagement session of the NASA-hosted public workshop at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston to examine 96 of the ideas submitted to the recent Request For Information on ways to accomplish the agency’s asteroid initiative. The workshop features discussions by NASA experts, its international partners, private industry and the public on how best to identify, capture and relocate near-Earth asteroids for closer study and how to respond to asteroid threats.
