"To combat this threat, NASA scientists are developing a giant "Lysol" missile which will kill 99.99% of germs on the meteor before it strikes
"...That will give the .01% of life that survives the impact a fighting chance," said Jones.
Even if the missile is successful, Jones warns that survivors should still avoid touching meteor fragments unless absolutely necessary. "If a piece
of meteor is crushing your son's legs, I would touch it," said Jones, "but I'd be sure to wear gloves and wash my hands thoroughly
An even more nightmarish scenario would have the surviving bacteria aerosolized on impact and make the air we breathe toxic.
"The dust cloud that will encircle the Earth not only would block out the sun for decades, but it could be teeming with bacteria," said Jones. "I
recommend wearing a mask..."
Quite intresting. In the article they refer to it like it will definently happen. Im not so sure, but I cant say I really doubt it. It could happen. I
found the Lysol missle quite funny, but I guess its not a joke. If we all dont die, the ones still alive could be mutated.
