Yes, there IS a foundation that’s concerned about the possibility of an asteroid striking the Earth. Their motto is “Detect. Deflect. Defend.” This announcement appears on its website, b612foundation.org:
The B612 Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c) 3 organization dedicated to opening up the frontier of space exploration and protecting humanity from asteroid impacts. On June 28, 2012, the Foundation announced its plans to build and operate the first privately funded, launched, and operated interplanetary mission – an infrared space telescope to be placed in orbit around the Sun to discover, map, and track asteroids whose orbits approach Earth and threaten humanity.
Origin of the foundation’s name? Aviator Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s little prince supposedly came from a tiny asteroid named B-612.
