NASA won’t meet Congressional orders to track most city-smashing-sized asteroids in Earth’s neighborhood by 2020, an expert panel concluded Friday, because the government didn’t provide the money to detect such Near-Earth Objects.
“because for the past 5 years the administration requested no funds, and the Congress appropriated none, for this purpose.” (blogs.usatoday.com/sciencefair)
This issue is not a possibility, its a probability. Sooner or later Earth will be hit by another asteroid that will cause massive amounts of damage.
Bundle up all the things Washington protects us from into one giant cataclysmic ball and it still wouldn’t equal the damage a large asteroid will do.
The mistake is that asteroids are still legal. If asteroids were illegal then there would be ample funding to track and destroy them.
To that end, please help spread one of these rumors about asteroids –
Illegal aliens use asteroids to sneak into America.
Disaster capitalist are plotting to steer asteroids at Earth for profit.
Drug traffickers use asteroids to smuggle narcotics into America.
Global warming is caused from the friction asteroids create entering the atmosphere.
Al-Qaeda is secretly plotting to steer an asteroid into the White House.
Teenagers are getting stoned on Meteorites.
