WORLD leaders need to take the threat of an apocalyptic asteroid strike seriously, scientists have warned. A hit on the scale of the comet that wiped out the dinosaurs is unlikely, but smaller “near earth objects” (NEOs) can still wreak havoc, the Asgardia group said.

Jay Tate, a leading Asgardia scientist and director of the privately-funded Space-guard Centre in Wales, said: “NEOs pose a serious, even cataclysmic, threat to human civilisation and action must be taken now to identify levels of risk and develop the technology to protect this and future generations.”

I know, I know, enough with Armageddon; but here at least are people with papers somewhere that say they know whereof they speak. Somehow I fail to inspire confidence (maybe it's the hair?) when I rattle on about this. Just please note: We could not contemplate this little problem of our demise without having put ourselves through the grueling experience of a thousand wars and as a result coming up with just the toys we'll need to confront these witless wandering jellybeans from Hell. I find that irony very perplexing, and very rewarding to explore. Give it a shot, it couldn't hurt! Overpopulation? Nuclear proliferation? Suddenly it all falls into place, takes the heat off our apparent naughtiness, and puts the focus where it belongs: on the only enemy we ever really had. We'll pull it off because we must, and I think we're just fabulous.

I think we're just flatulance. As the daily headlines most seriously prove.

Well Dan,

Speak for yourself; but that's really not the issue. The Planet is filled with a billion years of wonderfulness, and we are going to save it; and the flatulence to which you refer is what Ma is counting on, because without it, we'd never have stumbled on the means to save the planet's life from massive nastiness from Heaven. Maybe you don't get out enough; I know a lot of sterling folk. Even slavery had its upside; like Aretha Franklin!

Just back from six days of intense powder skiing, then working in the garden, walking two dogs, planting clover, so I may be full of flatulence, but it's not from failing to get out.

You do realize we have 450+ nukes a hair's breath from meltdown? Untold thousands of nukes waving at each other, "controlled" by psychopaths?

All on hair trigger alert?

Molly, Just want you to know I appreciate your updates on asteroids, that I look at closely myself. My difficulty is with opinions without evidence. It would help if you supported those. BUT henceforth I will ignore that and stick to the asteroids. Peace!

Be specific. I have heaps o evidence.

Now here's an opinion for which I have a fair amount:

We age because the Universe is expanding and we simply deconstruct; which as far as soft tissue goes is not such a problem, it's the mineralized bones that become porous, then since the frame is fragile, the whole works comes tumbling down. That one should really piss you off.

And don't be such a buzz kill. Peace, in my opinion, is for pussies.

Just as life comes with the inevitability of death, existence comes with the possibility (and also inevitability...) of extinction. I somehow don't think that hysteria is the solution to either. Perhaps the best way to meaningfully address both is to lead a life one can, in good conscience, die with...

No one's hysterical, actually. The people performing the miraculous feats in Space are geniuses, hard working, and focused on keeping "Life Everlasting, Amen". That's why we're getting away with murder, so to speak. Ain't no beaver gonna do it; we got the thumbs, the cerebrums, and the agenda we didn't make up. We're just following orders. So who's hysterical? What these folks need is your applause, and a bigger budget.
