Asteroid Hunters Announce First Private Deep Space Mission

Asteroid hunters announce first private deep-space mission. (ABC News)

Humans couldn't stop an asteroid even if they did spot an incoming one. Extraterrestrials, those beings that don't exist for most of the people on earth control what happens to playpen Earth.

Nevertheless, private enterprise will get a peek of "other" things that are flying around the solar system and near the earth. But private enterprise is another illusion, government and military will have full control of what goes on in space and what people will see and know about. The government and the military are controlled by Extraterrestrials, oh the horror. No worry, few will ever believe that.

Asteroids could be heading for Earth right now, and the world should not have to live in fear. At least that's the message of a group of scientists and former astronauts working on the issue. They announced plans today to launch the first privately funded deep space mission in history, a space telescope that would make sure the coast is clear for us.

The SENTINEL mission, announced by the B612 Foundation, would send a telescope into orbit around the sun in order to track small to mid-sized asteroids that could threaten Earth. NASA already works with a network of astronomers to track the most dangerous near-Earth asteroids, those more than two thirds of a mile across. They say they believe they have already identified nearly 90 percent of those deadly space rocks.
However, there is very little data on an estimated 500 million smaller objects that could do us harm - like whatever exploded over the Tunguska region of Siberia in 1908, leveling over 800 miles of forest. The chairman and CEO of the B612 Foundation, former astronaut Ed Lu, says this is a problem. He flew on the space shuttle, the International Space Station and Russian Soyuz spacecraft.
"We've identified and mapped only about one percent of these asteroids to date." Lu said at a press conference. "During its 5.5-year mission survey time, Sentinel will discover and track half a million Near Earth Asteroids, creating a dynamic map that will provide the blueprint for future exploration of our solar system, while protecting the future of humanity on Earth."
Don't expect that dynamic map anytime soon. Launch of the Sentinel telescope is targeted for 2017 or 2018 - if the project, which would cost several hundred million of dollars, is able to find funding.
The B612 group is optimistic. A press release issued by the foundation said, "Advances in space technology, including advances in infrared sensing and on-board computing, as well as low-cost launch system, have opened up a new era in exploration where private organizations can now carry out grand and audacious space missions previously only possible by governments."
The B612 Foundation, based in Mountain View, Calif., is named after the home asteroid of the Earth-visiting prince in Antoine de Saint-Exupery's "The Little Prince." It was originally founded with a focus on deflecting a potential incoming asteroid. Ideas studied include sending an intercepting spacecraft, but none have been tested.
The group has since shifted its focus to this project, which will seek to identify asteroids rather than destroy them. However, the original mission is not far from their minds.
According to Rusty Schweickart, an Apollo astronaut and Chairman Emeritus of B612, "The nice thing about asteroids is that once you've found them and once you have a good solid orbit on them you can predict a hundred years ahead of time whether there is a likelihood of an impact with the Earth."

  1. Hi Lou,

    I already had since many years the very strong feeling or believe that when an incoming asteroid would be a so called global killer, those beings, those Extraterrestrials that don't exist for most of the people on earth would interfere and for come such a thing to happen.”

    And since I am aware of you (since 2007 via John) and you’re really mind-blowing and life changing information I am also convinced now that “The government and the military, and so much more, are indeed controlled by Extraterrestrials.”

    Thanks for everything Lou.

  2. Earth Playpen lol.

    Great post :)

  3. I'm pretty sure many asteroids have been in collision course with Earth but were averted no problem at all and no one knows about.
    Whatever, what's funny is Lou casually saying how private enterprise is just an illusion, as I was wondering if there was really private enterprise more people would see past the cloak around the silent planet. That was answered, they won't really?!
    I didn't really think the government and military was controlled controooolled by exts, I just thought they were loose goose who knew about the big man on some level?! I guess not then. Oh well. So much sh** on this Earth and nothing will ever come out, so frustrating and boring!
    Lou, publish a new book please!!!

  4. When people find themselves in a conflicting situation
    `their minds rationalize it by inventing a comfortable solution.
    If the solution is comfortable but somehow violates another
    rule instead of tossing the comfortable solution they will
    appropriate more money to make the comfortable
    solution work. Ad infinitum.
    As far as CERN is concerned the neutrinos could not have
    exceeded the speed of light therefore it must have been a error
    In the wiring.
    In the case of the Higgs boson findings, John Guinon a longtime physics professor at the University of California at Davis and author of the book "The Higgs Hunter's Guide," said, “if the calculations are indeed correct then it is fair to say that "in some sense we have reached the mountaintop."
    To which I would like to add, “It may not be the mountain we were initially climbing but it was, in fact, a mountaintop. But that is beside the point. We know there was a big bang; we just have to find the evidence that proves it whether or not we like it.
