During our 11 minute plus discussion, Dr. Lu, John, and I talked about the Asteroid 2012 DA14 and its pass near Earth on Feb. 15 of this year, the discovery that Apophis is about 20% larger than originally thought and the significance of that discovery, plus our ability to deflect a NEO headed for Earth. We also talked about the B612 Foundation, its mission to protect the Earth from threatening asteroids before they find us, their Sentinel Project, and Dr. Lu directed our attention to their video on their website home page which shows NEOs in our solar system and around Earth. You can see the video at http://b612foundation.org.
