According to this article ( http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/18/asteroid-impact-deflection-assessment-earth-space-rocks_n_2497672.html?utm_hp_ref=science), “European space officials are seeking ideas to help develop a mission to knock an asteroid off its course, in case one day humans must pull off such a stunt to save Earth from a catastrophic space-rock collision.”
“The reason the dinosaurs went extinct is because they didn’t have a space program.”
It turns out that I have just completed a prototype of a spaceship that will destroy such an asteroid! I’m currently working on a 2-beater model, which, as you can imagine, presents many more technical difficulties.
I’ve also found it has a much more ‘close to home’ use. It is 100% effective at dispersing ‘bad karma’, ‘evil spells’, ‘negative energy’ etc! I expect to market it for that purpose while I work on a full scale ship for the Europeans.
