B612’s 15th Birthday by Geoffrey Baehr
The post is written by B612 founding board member, Geoffrey Baehr. Geoffrey is a General Partner at Almaz Capital investing in areas ranging from security and networking to analytics and big data technologies.
October 7 marked 15 years since B612 was formed to protect the Earth from asteroid impacts. Each day this week, five founding board members will each reflect on B612’s 15 years.
“As the fellow founding board directors have previously communicated, we have made a lot of progress in the last 15 years! Collectively we’re looking forward to the acceleration of asteroid discovery that will be brought to us by the emerging technology, telescopes, and talent in the field. Our growing Asteroid Institute technical and scientific team, working in collaboration with others in the field, should yield exciting results over the next decade. I’m pleased to have been there from the beginning.”
