    You should consider coming to Eyewitness News and Good morning America.You should consider working with national space agencies, British Interplanetary Society,Space Studies Institite,Planetary Resoucres and Icarus Interstellar projects. I think that you should apply for funding options soucres-kickstarters, White House, check out Foundation Center grants rich donors lists located Foundation Center online , government funding options(NASA,DOD, EPA,DOESBIR grants), billion dollar comporations, billion dollar investors(rich individuals and families via information found at Fortune 500 and Forbes magazines). Currently I am working projects and potential goals- . I had written and sold over 668 songs.Soon I will obtain money in the future. Once I have done that fully I will come back to you. There are asteriods discover in the past and recent that are worth billions of dollar up to several trillions.
