Currently, researchers from Europe, Russia and the United States are working on a project for the defense of Near Earth Objects (so-called “NEO’s”).
The earth is constantly in danger to collide with a rock from space. To date, over 8000 NEOs have been discovered. Around 1300 of these are potentially dangerous to earth.
The asteroid researchers are looking for ways to change the orbits of these dangerous “bullets” in a timely manner.
What do you think about this project?
