[Technology Review] We’re going to slam a spacecraft into an asteroid to try to deflect it

Quote:
Just last week, more than 130 scientists met in Rome to hash out more details about an informal collaboration between NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) called AIDA, short for “asteroid impact and deflection assessment.” AIDA refers to a pair of missions designed to slam a spacecraft into a near-Earth asteroid and then study the impact to see how feasible it might be for humans to push an asteroid off its trajectory, should we ever need to.

Stop launching from Florida, the hurricanes there will stop.

Can't wait for the oh duck moment when they deflect it wrong and cause more harm than good.

Don't be ridiculous, you can't hit an asteroid. And, the last hurricane we shot at wobbled, we just stopped shooting too soon.

They should call ben affleck.
But then they will also get matt damon.
So... you know... pros and cons.

simulations are successful:

Spoiler!

Remember the golden rule of statistics: A personal sample size of one is a sufficient basis upon which to draw universal conclusions.
Upload the computer to Dropbox and provide a link to it so others may download it to examine and give advice for repairs.

I think you're forgetting the plot there.


He died because the timer on the nuke broke and it had to be blown up manually.
