On Tuesday May 31st, the Asteroid Institute, a program of B612 Foundation, issued a press release about the discovery of the first 104 main-belt asteroid discoveries using the THOR algorithm running on the Asteroid Discovery Analysis and Mapping (ADAM) platform.

In addition to a shout-out from Sundar Pichai, the CEO of Google, our story was covered by these publications and many more. This announcement and achievement would not have been possible without the collaborative efforts of Google Cloud and the University of Washington’s DiRAC Institute and B612’s Founding Circle and Asteroid Circle members, along with anonymous major donors and thousands of individual donors from 46 countries who provide financial support.

A short video explaining this news is here and a detailed fact sheet can be found here.
