CEO and co-founder of B612 Foundation (a private foundation dedicated to protecting the Earth from asteroid strikes), Dr. Ed Lu is a former NASA astronaut who flew three space missions, spent six months on the International Space Station, and has devoted his life to identifying and combating asteroid-related threats to our planet. As he pointed out in a recent 60 Minutes interview, there are in fact more than a million "near-Earth asteroids" that would, if they were to strike our planet, be 1,000 times more powerfully destructive than the atomic bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima in 1945. Now he will discuss his mission to track potentially devastating asteroids, including his B612 Foundation's efforts to build, launch and operate a deep space telescope with infrared capabilities.
