As a totally off-the-wall suggestion I am going to suggest that this is nuclear in nature and was done to test the idea that we can destroy incoming
meteors. They did not want any left-overs to be anywhere near Earth as other countries may be messing about up there in our space and they might
spill-the-beans to Earths Press. At least out there near Mars, no-one is likely to see/hear/feel any nuclear detonation or whatever.
The other idea is that it may be something which has been tested on the Martians to see if they can be destroyed before we get there to rape and
pillage Mars of its valuable minerals. After all, you would not want anyone to interrupt your take-over and development of the mining rights.
Really, we have no concept of just how totally evil and amoral these guys who run our countries are. They could do absolutely anything if they thought
it would get them a few extra bucks somewhere down the line. Anyone with any morals who works for these organisations is probably hoping for a bit of
peace and quiet and keeping their head down below the parapet.
