Not to start a flame-war, but what would we do to stop an asteroid stike anyway?

I don't believe in a romantic idea of being able to launch a missile to solve that problem...

The point is to find the asteroid before it gets remotely close IIRC. If we find one on a collision course with earth we can develop a way to gently nudge it so it won't hit earth.

Exactly, thats why NASA had sent that giant bullet to hit an asteroid and collect remnants of it to find its composition. No one is happy with the shoot a missle at something idea, thats why we arent just saying that its our cure.

Here here!

Im glad some of us can break away from Forum banter and have a conversation!

I feel that finding other-worldly civilizations has more priority than spending money on Wars, Failed political campaigns, and weapons research...

Weapons research IS cool,though...

To be fair the 2 biggest things for generating new technology are 1 : Wars, and 2 : Space exploration. Have you seen all the useful things that have come from WW1 and WW2? It's crazy. Also check out the stuff that came from NASA's leaps into space... they gave us water guns for god's sake.
