Indie band Broken Bells to help defend Earth from asteroids

Washington, Apr.13: American Indie rock band called Broken Bells has said that they would be donating one dollar from every ticket of their gig to help protect Earth from asteroids.

The band has reportedly collaborated with the B612 Foundation – a non-profit organization dedicated for this exact purpose.

Fans who will buy the tickets to the after party can also expect to see foundation notables like Dr. Marc Buie, who is the mission specialist on the Sentinel project, and Rusty Schweickart, Apollo 9 astronaut and a co-founder of B612, the Verge reported.

The donation made by the band is an attempt to spread awareness and funding for the deep space telescope that the non-profit organization is planning to launch in 2017 or 2018. (ANI)
