Emergency Planet Earth – Part 2

Stranger than Fiction
S1:Ep1223 mins1998Guest: Nigel Pegram

In part 2 of our exploration into the threat posed by near Earth objects, we learn of the programs created to improve the discovery and tracking of objects that pose a potential threat to life on Earth. In addition to tracking, new ideas are coming forward to offer solutions on reducing or eliminating threat potentials.

If an impact is inevitable, what can we do about it? Is it possible to fully eliminate the threat of collision from a large asteroid or comet?
