A commentator above asked how to divert an asteroid…You land a satellite equipped with a large engine on it and fire the engine in controlled short bursts as it rotates in order to divert it away from the earth and into the sun. The technology exists and we have landed a satellite on an asteroid not that long ago. I posted a link to the event a few days ago. All we need to do is build the satellites and equip them with powerful engines.There’s no profit in saving the planet though. Mr. Carlson’s cartoon suggests that diverting asteroids might be a 2nd amendment issue. Perhaps selling it as a way to protect gun ownership, or even unborn children who might die if a very large rock struck our planet would move politicians to act. We have the power to be powerful. We just need the will to act.Respectfully,C.
