NASA will shoot rocket at asteroid to test ‘planetary defense’ strategy
 
NASA will shoot rocket at asteroid to test ‘planetary defense’ strategy

"The launch of the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) mission will occur at 1:20 a.m. Eastern time on Nov. 24, NASA said. A SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket will be launched from the Vandenberg Space Force Base, about 50 miles northwest of Santa Barbara, Calif.


NASA is targeting a pair of asteroids that orbit the sun and occasionally come close to Earth. The asteroids don’t come close enough to pose a threat, NASA says, but their proximity makes them a prime candidate for the test of a technique that could someday prevent a “hazardous asteroid from striking Earth.”

“We’re going to make sure that a rock from space doesn’t send us back to the Stone Age,” Thomas Statler, a NASA scientist, said on the agency’s podcast.

We really need to figure out how to stop a killer asteroid, scientists say"

some environmentalist would love for an asteroid to hit the earth to bring it back it to a more "natural" state... and stop "climate change!".

What you call "Political Garbage" I call funny. Sorry you didn't get it, SNL does it on every show. But since it attacks the right, it is humor.
