B612 Foundation Announces Asteroid Finding Mission
The B612 Foundation announced today the first privately funded deep space mission.
The mission, Sentinel, is an asteroid finding spacecraft that will be launched into a venus-like orbit, from where it is able to map the region near Earth.
The spacecraft will be equipped with a 0.5m diameter Infrared telescope, and will scan the night half of the sky every 26 days.
