Bark: Design a Space Mission

The Planetary Society is running a competition to design a space mission to put a tag on a near-Earth asteroid, which at 400m wide poses quite a big threat, if it should ever come down on a city. With a prize of $50,000, I'm sure it's going to attract quite a bit of attention, even if no-one ever decides to follow it up with an actual mission.

My prediction: the one with the coolest acronym will win. You don't get anywhere in Space Science without a cool acronym...
