Interesting article, thanks Rick. I wonder how they are able to estimate the number of asteroids that can be found and tracked, given that the capability does not exist today?

Hi Caleb,

Yes, our mission is to create a complete map of the inner solar system. We see our mission as one of exploration and discovery, as well as planetary defense. Please do keep up with us! As a private space mission, your support and awareness means a lot to us. And thank you, Rick, for the great article.

Yes, it would be interesting to see what they might find.

Lu said Congress has charged NASA with identifying any asteroids that would have a 100+ megaton impact, basically big enough to destroy the world economy. But no one is looking for asteroids in the sub 100 megaton range, enough to destry a city.

I'm so happy to see this moving forward.  It seems like, due to the incredibly sad state of funding for space programs, we're getting so few new chances to learn more about what is out there. Hopefully this will be able to shed some light on even more than just asteroids.
