Nasa having an imminent-asteroid-impact exercise this week


During the five day conference, NASA and its partners plan to engage in a "tabletop exercise" that simulates what would happen if scientists and authorities were to learn of a near-Earth Object (NEO) impact scenario.

"A tabletop exercise of a simulated emergency commonly used in disaster management planning to help inform involved players of important aspects of a possible disaster and identify issues for accomplishing a successful response," says NASA.


good on you Nasa
good luck

Asteroid impacts are the only potentially preventable natural disaster—provided we spot the threatening asteroid with enough lead time to launch a mission into space to deflect it. NASA and its partners are studying several different approaches to deflecting a hazardous asteroid. The most advanced of these techniques is called a kinetic impactor, and a mission to demonstrate this technology is called the Double-Asteroid Redirection Test (DART), is slated to launch in 2021.


not to get political but I wonder if Trump's proposed Space Force will end up working with this Planetary Defense Council.

interesting stuff

Doesn't really seem so.


The United States Space Force shall be organized, trained, and equipped to meet the following priorities:

(a) Protecting the Nation’s interests in space and the peaceful use of space for all responsible actors, consistent with applicable law, including international law;

(b) Ensuring unfettered use of space for United States national security purposes, the United States economy, and United States persons, partners, and allies;

(c) Deterring aggression and defending the Nation, United States allies, and United States interests from hostile acts in and from space;

(d) Ensuring that needed space capabilities are integrated and available to all United States Combatant Commands;

(e) Projecting military power in, from, and to space in support of our Nation’s interests; and

(f) Developing, maintaining, and improving a community of professionals focused on the national security demands of the space domain.

Rockets don't even work in the vacuum of space. You can't deny the science.

rockets working in space is pseudoscience. Rockets don't give the exhaust momentum, pressure gradient force does.

Newton was wrong then.

Wow.

Tell me, what's the shape of the Earth?

So if I'm reading this correctly, if NASA were to learn of a NEO impact scenario, they would hold a 5 day conference and plan to fix the situation with technology we haven't built yet?

That really does sound like what would happen.

When you drop something from a height, does it push back on your hand?
Similarly, the gas doesn’t push off the rocket unless there is resistance to cause back pressure

We need AOC on this one.

I highly doubt AOC has any jurisdiction outside of being a menace.
