"City-killing asteroids will inevitably strike Earth but NASA isn't launching this mission to hunt them down.

[] While NASA did commit to partially fund NEOCam for a year, it's effectively the space agency's third pass on launching the telescope in a decade. (The mission was submitted in two previous rounds of Discovery.)

Meanwhile, NASA is running years behind its Congressional mandate to find NEOs, and Earth is mostly blind to threats that might one day level a city."

Its the manned-Mars bullsh#t. Can't have the cake and eat it too I'm afraid.

And don't get me started on their black-budget military missions.

A NEO passed between Earth and the moon just last week.
That's close.

Maybe not NASA, but there is a hell of a lot of work towards identifying civilization killers.

One of the 35 viruses identified a few weeks ago by a large group of epidemiologists
as most likely to mutate into a pandemic are more likely to do us in, or an increase in crankloons.

Is protection from asteroids enshrined in the Constitution?
If not, totally unreasonable expectation from a federal body. I suggest you petition your state legislature.

Mr. Brennan,

Or it was maybe a Comet?

I know, right? That kinda heavy lifting, I might pull a hamie...

I start sounding like that, I'd appreciate someone putting me on meds. Or on an iceflow drifting out to sea.

Moose,

I am unsure how justified your concern about a city-killing asteroid is. But if it gets to be too worrisome, perhaps consider moving to a municipality. Ours would welcome you.

You guys worry too much. Trump told me he would build a wall to keep the asteroids out. And he'll make the asteroids pay for it.

Trump can simply use his ego to block the asteroid and show us how great he is
