LOGAN, Utah - Canadian space and defense agencies are considering
construction of a small space telescope to detect possible Earth-whacking
asteroids and train the military to track satellites in high orbits.
"We want to watch for rocks in the sky that might hit the Earth or that we
might want to mine," said Kieran Carroll, space projects manager for Dynacon
Enterprises Ltd. in Mississauga, Ontario, near Toronto. "And while we are up
there looking, we might as well be space traffic cops and learn how to keep
track of all the high-orbit satellites."
Full story here:
...nothing like knowing what's going to hit you... now how about starting
to think a little about what if anything could be done about it ? ...or is
that a taboo subject that might include the dreaded n-word ? ( "better dead
than speak the n-word" ?).
