NASA TESTING “PLANTETARY DEFENSE” SYSTEM AGAINST AN ASTEROID
Right around Thanksgiving time this year, NASA is planning to test a “planetary defense” system by shooting a rocket at an asteroid.
Don’t worry. Your weekend of turkey dinner and football will be safe. This experiment will take place about 6.8 million miles from Earth -- and will pose no danger to us.
But ... to be clear ... NASA will be shooting a rocket at an asteroid -- and streaming the video on their app and website. Other than the football and the Macy’s Day Parade, this sounds like must-see TV. More here: (People)
- If only they’d make a movie about something like this.
