Submission + - B612 Sentinel Mission Gets New Funding

RocketAcademy writes: "The B612 Foundation’s privately funded deep-space mission, Sentinel, has received new major support from prominent members of the business and financial community.

The B612 Foundation, which is headed by former NASA astronaut and Google executive Ed Liu, plans to build, launch, and operate a space telescope to be placed in orbit around the Sun, ranging up to 170 million miles from Earth, for a mission of asteroid discovery and mapping. The telescope is expected to discover millions of asteroids. Sentinel will detect and track asteroids accurately enough to give warning of impending impacts decades in advance, allowing humanity to deflect threatening asteroids with existing technology."
