Crowdfunding to Save the World: Asteroid Defense Body Seeks $200k

If you really knew what was out there in space hurtling towards Earth, you would probably have trouble ever sleeping again. A Danish organization called Emergency Asteroid Defense Project, has humanity's interest at heart and is attempting to raise $200K on Indiegogo for research on how to deflect or destroy asteroids at a safe distance from Earth.

The problem is there are about a million out there that go down to about the size of 30 meters. The likelihood of something hitting us in the future is pretty guaranteed.
