This is smoke and mirrors to allow our Lizard Overlords to maintain the status quo of keeping emissaries from the Gal-Civ outreach project from reaching earth. At least the scout ship was a small one this time, last one they sent leveled the area when Lizard energy weapons picked off an embassy class ship.

Well, our object collision budget's a million dollars. That allows us to track about 3% of the sky, and beg'n your pardon sir, but it's a big-ass sky.

But that's assuming it got past the Reptilian base on Mars, the one they overran with the Sirrians, so that the Galactic Federation will never meet with the Enlightened Ones under Mount Shasta.

Since odds are the next meteor impact or airburst large enough to cause damage will happen outside the US, Republicans will promptly kill any funds for this.

If it's on the horizon, then it's missing the rest of the sky. How useless.

MOUNT SHASTA?!? HAHA! That's just a cover story you noobs. The Von Neumann machines are already manipulating your brains.

You should probably take the matter up with the US military.

AUGH!  I forgot about FLCL.

I REMEMBER EVERYTHING!

I was barely 17, and I once killed a boy batted an asteroid with a Fender Gibson guitar

Oh hells yes.

Also, we'll build an asteroid detection system. It will run for 20-30 years, and then somebody will eliminate it from the budget because school lunches or some such. And then Murphy throws a big one into the Pacific with no warning.

There are also TWO asteroid mining companies that will be sending up similar telescopes. Planetary Resources and Deep Space Industries.

We farking HAD an asteroid tracking program at the 20 acre dish in Aricebo. It was closed down. I saw it running, and it was awesome.

The Aricebo dish is still in operation. They will be looking at Apophis in Feb/March this year, as well as others.

We need an asteroid to wipe out a major city just so we can jump start our space program again.  There is no other way to get it rolling.

Almost forgot the B612 Foundation! Their Sentinel mission is an infrared telescope searching for asteroids from inside of Earth's orbit near Venus's. They are a nonprofit. If you have any, you can send 'em your $$ and help save the World.
