How to stop killer asteroids

Post by out in space » Thu Dec 05, 2013 4:25 pm

If a killer asteroid threatens Earth, stopping it may involve sending human astronauts to divert it.

The new documentary Mission Asteroid looks at how scientists are preparing for the ultimate natural disaster, and the role asteroids will play in the future of human civilization. The mission in the title is two-fold, said director Jeff Thrasher in an interview in Toronto.

"One part is to stop asteroids from hitting us," he said. "And the second part is to send humans to asteroids, to explore them and to potentially figure out how use them to take humans even further."

Right out of a Hollywood movie or two. Only this time the astronauts are not actors and no writers for a perfect
Hollywood ending.
