These things don't get attention because we (humanity) stand no chance of preventing them.
We are now at a point that our technology can at least hope to avert simple NEO collisions.
Since the sun, gallactic center, and supernovas wouldn't even flicker if we unleashed the energy of every weapons on the planet at them. what is the
point of worrying?
If it is going to happen it will happen. Putting money and time into watching, just for the sake of knowing doomsday is comming is a waste. It is
especially wasteful if that time and money could have been used to prevent something more simple like a big asteroid... or a plague.
There are not only many other thing that could do us all in that we don't talk about, but infinite more we don't even know about.
For example... Space, not just outter space, but the space withing the atoms that make up our body, could be at an excited energy state and drop in
energy effectivly destroying known reality. Do I sit around and worry about it? No, cause if it happen, even with warning, there is no way to stop
Least of our worries? No, we can attempt prevention, they are at the top of the list.
