issued a press release
indicating that asteroid 2012 DA14
does not pose any risk to satellites in Earth orbit. Dr. T.S. Kelso, Space Data Center Operations Manager, says, "In fact, of all the ways for an asteroid to pass between Earth and the geostationary belt, we are fortunate that DA14 will follow one of the safest possible routes."
