    This is as good as any place to post this....

    Gregg Easterbrook in the latest Atlantic on why there are far more important things for NASA to worry about:

    There's no reason to worry about it because there's nothing they can do to prevent it.

    If you read the article, there is some promising research...but it's being done by the Air Force, not NASA.

    Great idea. Take office on Jan. 20, pull out of Iraq by Valentine's Day, and we can have people on Mars by 2015.

    Take the money we're pouring into that shithole and give it to NASA, we'd be back on the moon by Christmas.

    Fuck NASA. We need to worry about this world.

    Slowing down an asteroid by one mile an hour will dramatically alter its course over a couple of decades. If we can spot a rock 25 years out with Earth's name on it, we can send something up within five years and do what we have to do (short of blowing it up, in which case we get hit with a shotgun blast instead). Most asteroids are less than a mile in diameter, so it would be challenging but not impossible.

    We need to be spending more money finding these near-Earth rocks.
