Ed Lu presents Anthropocene Astronomy: Thwarting Dangerous Asteroids Begins with Finding Them
In the long now, the greatest threat to life on Earth, or (more frequently) to civilization, or (still more frequently) to cities, is asteroid impact.
Ed Lu is CEO and Chairman of the B612 Foundation, which is building an asteroid-detection system called Sentinel, aiming for launch in 2018.
On February 15th, civilization got a wake-up call. A smaller rock exploded in the air over Chelyabinsk, Russia, injuring 1500 people. Interest in B612’s asteroid detection mission spiked accordingly.
