Mathematically speaking, doesn't it seem just a little absurd to grab an object that is moving 1000s of miles an hour, and purposely disrupt it's orbit - and then try to force it to maintain a new one?! That is damned near impossible.
And I really can't see the point either way.  Does studying the sister of possible planet killing rocks make them any less dangerous?!  Of course not.  So wtf?!
