This will put North Korea's attack on the sea to shame.

its all fun and games until the asteroid hits back.

Changing the trajectory of an asteroid that is in no way a threat to us?

Ooh, more hubris please!

I think it's a horrible idea to crash an old space shuttle into an asteroid, then again, I didn't do too well in Science class. Carrion, SANA

You can see the little moon asteroid that it is going to hit now.
 
2022-09-26 6:44:58 PM  
They're attacking this "asteroid" because it's one of the Greys & Bigfoot outposts used to bounce over to Earth. They're trying to get ahead of the next round of crop circles warning us about the intergalactic war about to hit our doorstep.

See, Bigfoot comes to Earth because they are conscientious objectors to the war. They come here to be safe. Well, they're safe from everybody but American dudes named Buggs.

Study it out.

If this mission is successful... there's going to be a lot A LOT of great nerd sex tonight.
 
2022-09-26 6:48:48 PM  
Can they direct it towards Russia/Best Korea?

not sure if joking.. but this is a test to see if we can redirect any potential threats in the future

I watched this launch out of Vandenberg, so I guess it's fitting to watch the 'landing'.
 
2022-09-26 6:55:09 PM  
This isn't going to do all that well for how we appear to an alien civilization. I can just hear it now... "Geeze, Guranph, they had the entire damn universe to aim their craft into, and they manage to smash into an asteroid. On second thought, lets not introduce ourselves to these dumbasses. Nothing good can come from them."
 
2022-09-26 6:57:12 PM  
The subtitles are crazy, apparently some speech to text is going nuts on the asteroid names.

It's really starting to grow in the view now.
 
2022-09-26 6:57:58 PM  
Someone needs to add the Star Trek music from 'Doomsday Machine' as a background soundtrack -

"BA-bom-Ba-bom-BA-bom-ba-bom,
BA-bom-Ba-bom-BA-bom-ba-bom

BA-da-da-DAH  BA-da-DAH-da!"

"Hey, Dad. Is that thing really coming right for us? You have got to be farking kidding me!"

"Watch your language, son. They are starting to take their revenge for the dinosaur thing."

"But dad... we helped them. They have no significant predators anymore."

"Son, you are so smart. This might be the end for you, so have always wanted to tell you this..."

"What, dad"

"You rock."

We've hit asteroids (and planets) before.

The aliens will most likely skip us for our inability to solve fixable problems (take your pick: hunger, climate change, war, etc).

Or the Twilight Zone episode "To Serve Man" will be foreshadowing.

Too bad that they scrapped all of the B-53s. We could have -really- given this thing a shove.

You know it's serious when the mission team breaks out the matching polo shirts.

this asteroid needs the face from the moon in Majora's Mask

Special effects budget could only pay for one-fifth of a model.

And of course they are going to "miss" because NASA would be filming their own assault.

Almost looks like the moon has a moon to the lower left. Star?

With all due respect, they could reposition the little NASA camera inset in the upper corner

Stay on target!
 
2022-09-26 7:14:25 PM  
Yeah, there seems to be another moon.
