There is a great interest in the study of near-Earth asteroids (NEAs), not only from a safety point of view, as it is one of the tools with which we can protect our planetary environment, but also from a scientific point of view, as it is a necessary pre-cursory step in space exploration through space missions. We investigate the rotational properties of NEAs 2059, 13553, 143404, 190166, 276033, 398188, and 444193, which are suitable targets for future space missions in terms of ∆v. We find long rotational periods objects with large amplitudes in the lightcurve.
