Last month, a fireball exploded over Russia, destroying buildings and injuring more than 1,200 people, the result of a meteor hitting the Earth's atmosphere.

What technology do we have in place to track giant space rocks? Our guest: Ed Lu, a former NASA astronaut and CEO of the B612 Foundation, which is building one of the largest telescopes in the world to discover, map, and track asteroids whose orbits approach Earth.
