Well, I suppose this would do two things. It would save billions in planning Mars trips for the next hundred years or more. Correct me if I'm wrong
here, but this would be an ELE for impact, if anything was there to make extinct right? It would make for quite a mess in the air for a long
...LONG...time to come, wouldn't it?
Second though, it would finally give man a LOOK, not just glimpse, of what a catastrophic space object impact is all about. It seems outer planets
have taken hits when no one was looking and the Gas Giants have certainly taken large object "impacts", but that tells us nothing when nothing but a
flash in the clouds is there to be seen.
This would give literal High Definition footage from approach to impact to ejecta out the atmosphere from satellite views in orbit (If they didn't
get hit...Just how far would debris blast upward anyway?).
Perhaps after a 'show' like this, Man would take the threat to Earth seriously. Even a 1:Million chance is still the END of our species, once every
million years, so to speak. 1 chance is too many to ignore, now that tech literally sits within reach to do something about mitigating the next one,
