1. REALLY stupid name.

2.  Good idea in general, I certainly hope the project is or can be adapted to doing something scientifically useful.

3.  The shiathead Republicans in Congress will likely block the proposal, because, well, they're shiatheads.

4.  To protect lives, we're ultimately going to need to develop a capability to launch one or more big nukes at a dangerous meteor on relatively short notice.  I don't know enough details to be 100% certain but I'm pretty sure our Minutemans can't do the job.

5.  Come to think of it, since it involves rockets,  big nukes, and lots of money going to Lockheed the shiathead Republicans in Congress just might get behind something like this.

6.  Republicans in Congress are shiatheads.  A few Democrats are too.

7.  The article keeps referring to NASA as Nasa.  This bugs me for some reason.

8.  Why am I doing this post in list form?

KarmicDisaster: TFA has nothing to do with stopping asteroids, subby, just better detection.



So you're saying they don't want to miss a thing?

"At the Kennedy Space Centre in Florida, KaBoom blueprints are being turned into reality. KaBoom is short for Ka-Band Objects Observation and Monitoring project.


Really? I thought it stood for Key Atomic Benefits Office Of Mankind.
