GeekSpeak – Asteroids – what should we do to avoid collisions? Join the Discussion July 14th at 12pm SLT

Asteroids have hit Earth in the past and will hit Earth in the future.  What should we do to protect ourselves?  Should we be spending money on technology that will deflect asteroids?  Since there are 10,000 near earth objects that might cause problems perhaps we should see asteroids as a serious danger.

Or should we attack asteroids ourselves?  Should we harvest them until nothing remains to threaten us?  What will we find in asteroids and what will we do with it?  And will there be a demand for whatever we find in asteroids?

If you think we should mine them then how soon do we start?  Or do you think we should leave them alone?

Come and join us to talk about big fast-moving rocks in space.  Bring a helmet.
