Default NASA’s Planetary Defense Coordination Office to Fight Asteroids


NASA’s Planetary Defense Coordination Office to Fight Asteroids

The NASA Advisory Council received a report that said it should build a Planetary Defense Coordination Office to fight Asteroids. The proposed new office will take funding that will amount to 250 – 300 million dollars each year for ten years. The new Planetary Defense Coordination Office will be charged with completing five key areas: organizing a defense, build warning capabilities, investigate threats, respond to threats, and lead planetary defense efforts.

We all know Apophis 99942 is supposed to arrive in 2029 and 2036, this could be the urgency behind the report.
