Asteroid Making Its Way Toward Mars

Leave a comment


This isn’t science fiction or the musings of an over-imaginative ambulator. This is the real deal folks. So if you were thinking that my argument “for technology” was far-fetched, think again.

It’s fine to live dreaming of an entirely natural Golden Age. But that dream would likely end if one of these asteroids ever impacted Earth:

From a previous blog entry, A walk on Christmas eve:

But then I thought, What if humanity were threatened by an asteroid? If we hadn’t developed our technology as it currently stands, we’d be wiped out for sure. At least we’d have a chance nowadays as we could blast an asteroid into oblivion.
