B612 is an organization that works towards protection of Earth from asteroid impacts a reality, and to inform decision-making on planetary defense issues. B612 provides a non-governmental voice on the risks, options, and implications of asteroid data. We work to make interpretation of asteroid data open and accessible, and serve as an informed source for policy makers. We will continue our scientific leadership by developing new technologies and leading scientific advancements in the field of planetary defense such at the Gravity Tractor and the Sentinel Space Telescope.
Asteroid Day is a global awareness campaign where people from around the world come together to learn about asteroids, the impact hazard they may pose, and what we can do to protect our planet, families, communities, and future generations from future asteroid impacts. Asteroid Day is held each year on the anniversary of the largest impact in recent history, the 1908 Tunguska event in Siberia. Subscribe to our Mailing list
