NASA is going to fire a spacecraft at an asteroid to change its course

quote:

(NEXSTAR) — Space is, of course, full of asteroids and comets. Those that orbit in our solar system are known as near-Earth objects, or NEOs. Some may pose a future risk to Earth, but NASA is prepared to protect us, and you’ll be able to see proof of that Monday.

First, it’s important to understand NEOs. They’re defined as objects that come within 30 million miles of Earth’s orbit, and most are larger than a small football stadium. Six years ago, NASA started the Planetary Defense Coordination Office to find NEOs, warn of their close approaches, coordinate an action plan, and mitigate any potential impacts.

On Monday, the PDCO will make its first-ever attempt to change the path of an asteroid using a kinetic impact during the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART).

They should just send a group of oil drillers to put a nuke mid way into it and split it in half.

If we need an astronaut that requires zero mobility and limited intelligence, I nominate Oweo. He's perfect assuming there is no ability to post here from outer space.

Bruce Willis is mentally compromised and Michael Clark Duncan died. Earth maybe in trouble.

This is the first asteroid redirect mission. You’re thinking of the 2005 mission Deep Impact. For that mission they smashed a piece of copper into a comet.
