Led by former astronauts and veteran NASA astronomers, the foundation will create an "asteroid map" of the inner solar system, identifying 90 percent of all asteroids larger than 140 meters (459 ft) in Earth’s region of the solar system.
"An asteroid that is 140 meters across (i.e. one that would fit comfortably inside a high school sports stadium) packs an impact energy of about 100 Megatons of TNT, which is about five times larger than all the bombs used in WWII."
The non-profit B612 Foundation is named after the asteroid of "The Little Prince" by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
