I've got a few bottles of good scotch and plenty of porn; so I'm prepared for an extinction level impact.
It also means I'm prepared for Tuesday.

akallen404: You DO know that SpaceX launched DART mission, right?



You DO know that NASA has launched thousands of missions into space without SpaceX, right?  If there had been no SpaceX NASA would have just launched the DART mission by other means.

Don't confuse the rider for the horse.

This whole article is predicated on the assumption that there is a way to be prepared, that detecting and destroying/moving a world-ending astroid is possible.

Not that I'm a fatalist, but there are a lot of things in the universe that are completely out of our control and could suddenly end all life on Earth.
