“Low probability events, can and do happen” Brent Barbee, Aerospace Engineer and Astrodynamicist
Asteroids are random events, making it difficult sometimes to detect. Asteroids constitute a constant threat towards Earth, because even though they do present a low probability, they can and do occur causing devastating effects. The EADP initiative is inspiring and fascinating; considering the fact that the asteroids threat the whole world, it makes sense that the people of the world united work towards a solution for its own defence.
The Emergency Asteroid Defence Project is only a couple of months old, and it is still in it’s research and development stage, but where did this project emerge from? Who had the idea to make such an ambitious and daring project?
I guess the time has come to reveal the background and the brains behind this challenging quest, behind the Task Force Humanity organization and most importantly, behind the Emergency Asteroid Defence Project. And yes, it is a 30-year old entrepreneur with a brilliant mind and a strong desire to tackle humanity’s biggest problems (or at least some of them).
