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.

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.
