I'm still digesting this document but I did read the Canadian Space Agency is soon to be launching a satellite to detect future NEOs. It looks like
the western powers are looking to space for danger. Is SETI down due to lack of funding still or is it up & running?
Also, by 2025 the US wants to send man/robotic missions to inspect astroids for possible future NEO collisions. I can't help but think of
"I'm leavin' on a jet plane...don't know if I'll be back again..."

Bottom of page 2, it talks about NASA identifying over 1000 NEOs (1 kilometer or larger) & of those 1000ish only 149 could ever pose a collision
hazard for earth - with none of these presenting a threat to earth over the next century
