I don't post very much, just mostly read and move on, but as soon as I clicked on this thread, I knew I had seen the image in the OPs video somewhere
I suck at posting images but here is the link to a site called GIZMAG,
The image in the OPs video is the same one posted in this article about "Deep Space Industries", here is what the first part of the article has to
(Russian meteor strike prompts call for asteroid sentries)
" On the same day that a meteor exploded over Russia injuring almost a thousand people and an asteroid passed too close to Earth for comfort, the
asteroid-mining company Deep Space Industries (DSI) proposes setting up sentry lines in space to track and study rogue asteroids posing a threat to
Earth. Using technology originally intended for prospecting for water and minerals on asteroids, the sentry lines of satellites would provide
information for deflecting potentially dangerous near-Earth objects."
I am curious now, did the guy who made the video just make a fake one using that image, or did this company actually use the technology already.
Here is more of the article;
"According to DSI, there are over 10,000 near Earth asteroids big enough to destroy a city and 900 more are discovered every year, yet very little is
known about them. DSI’s proposal is to deploy sentry lines of satellites to track and intercept rogue asteroids to determine their threat and how to
The DSI plan is to set up its FireFly satellites to detect and track rogue asteroids. The FireFly was originally designed to target candidate
asteroids for mining operations based on value, return times and learn their composition, structure and spin rate. These would be followed by small
probes to intercept asteroids and gather close-up data on their structure and composition that would be important in deflecting them.
According to David Gump, CEO of Deep Space Industries, “Placing ten of our small FireFly spacecraft into position to intercept close encounters
would take four years and less than US$100 million. This will help the world develop the understanding needed to block later threats.”
Interesting how the article talks about "Deflecting" these space rocks, "Intercepting Close Encounters" and in the end says "develop the
understanding needed to block later threats".
Interesting stuff for sure.
