“You know nothing, average human!” Soeren O. Ekelund, EADP founder, engineer and decision scientist
How do humans in general understand risk, and why do politicians not act on risks that scientists again and again show are important?
Why did the EADP crowdfunding fail despite of everything?
And why can Venture Capital Financing of Society foundation do it much better?!

At Cosmic-Con 2015, Cristina Stanilescu will be speaking on behalf of EADP in the company of renown astronauts such as Al Worden, Jack Lousma, Kathryn C. Thornton and Donald A. Thomas, Geoff Notkin and Steve Arnold from Meteorite Men, Mark Thompson from Stargazing Live and astronomer Nick Howes.
EADP’s purpose here is to increase the general understanding of the asteroid and comet threat, as well as the possible short-term solutions.
The PDC conference is the biggest scientific gathering in Europe in 2015 regarding planetary defence against asteroids and comets, hosted the 13-17th April by the International Academy of Astronautics (an independent non-governmental organization recognized by the United Nations in 1996).
EADP was present with 5 employees, our crowdfunding partners and Prof. Bong Wie of the Asteroid Defence Research Center at Iowa State University, to discuss the optimal use and development of HAIV technology, as well as gather international support for the implementation of a global asteroid defence for both long-term and short-term threats.
Here the Asteroid Deflection Research Center’s written resume of the PDC15.
– video presentation by Prof. Bong Wie can be found further down.

EADP is also a proud sponsor of PDC 15, together with Lawrance Livermore National Laboratory, Association of Space Explorers, IAU, Secure World Foundation, B612 Foundation, UK Space Agency, Applied Physics Laboratory, GNV, Ball Aerospace and Technologies Corporation:
CROWD15 is the leading Nordic crowd event designed for entrepreneurs who are just discovering the new possibilites of crowdsourcing and crowdfunding.
It also represents the place where for the first time we presented EADP.
We were very pleased with the feedback and enthusiasm of the crowd.
