Over the next few weeks we’ll be sharing our story of how the B612 Foundation grew from an idea to an internationally-renowned private planetary defense mission.
With the giving season just over the horizon, we hope you will remember the B612 Sentinel Mission in your end of year donation plans.
NOVA’s Asteroids: Doomsday or Payday? B612 Foundation’s Ed Lu and Rusty Schweickart, and Sentinel Program Manager John Troelzsch give in-depth insights into the asteroid challenge and how we can solve it with Sentinel.
In partnership with Ball Aerospace, the B612 Foundation will build, launch, and operate an infrared space telescope to find and track the hundreds of thousands of threatening asteroids that cannot be tracked with current telescopes.
We have brought together a world-class team of astrophysicists and aerospace engineers, along with an outstanding business leadership team to design, build and operate the Sentinel Infrared Space Telescope.
