A Japanese spacecraft has “bombed” a speeding asteroid 187m miles (300m km) from Earth in an attempt to retrieve material that could offer
scientists new clues about the origins of life on the planet. The Hayabusa 2 probe released the device – called a small carry-on impact – on
Friday as it hovered 500 metres above the asteroid Ryugu, according to the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (Jaxa).
Yes, the samples will be important, but do you guess what is most important of all about human ability to be able to target and even land on an
For the first time in Creation the earth has a potential defense against extinction level events while the human is around to push a button, through
the human technology. This is evolution at its best. Effectively, through our species, evolution has nearly eradicated the risk of the earth ever
having to tolerate a large asteroid impact again if humans are present. We have paid our way and earned our keep in this department of enetrprise it
We should not now miss the warning of anything large enough to be a risk to us getting past our eye to the sky. We have been able to land on and cause
an explosion on an asteroid. I guess the remaining factor to be considered is if we could deliver an explosion powerful enough and far enough away to
eliminate the threat of a trillion ton 10 km diameter asteroid? If that becomes possible then the earth has found a way for protecting itself from
what happened 65 million years ago when practically all life was wiped out. Godzilla had no tech savvy with its pea brain and huge nasty teeth. Nature
had to get back to the drawing board with a lesson learned that time.
Humans can be a very useful tool to nature indeed. We are not all bad. She just needs to evolve us out of our destructive side when the time is
We have come a long way. I hope we don't blow it and go back to something violent like the dark ages.
