It can't be because it's not glamourous; because it certainly is--my guess is that the president is a fan of the movie "Armageddon".

I love this story.

Probably because people, collectively speaking, are often prone to panic, are often fear driven, and don't stop to think or research other sources to gain better insight and perspective before panicking or going into hyper drive "OMG" mode, etc...

Deflecting an Earth-path asteroid would be a stunning use of remarkable technology, far better, IMO, than the sort of Heinlen fantasy-track of Moon-Mars-other solar-system colonization scheme.

Its fun to speculate on the physics of stopping or deflecting an enormous meteor - mass X speed, in space - I suppose that a nuclear explosion would be the only thing that would have that kind of energy.

That's the best typed drum roll I've seen to date, Circus!

Do we even know if or how a nuclear device would work in space?

The movie with Bruce Willis and Hillary Swank, among others, was good, but it was only a movie. I think protecting our planet is worthy of placing in the budget, instead of wasting money visiting the moon again, or trying to colonize a planet that we can't really live on... not like we can here, anyway.

You mean Liv Tyler, not Hilary Swank.
