Oh Shit! Save Me, Bruce Willis! Save Me!

Jason, this is right up your alley.

This article also references use of Deep Impact to change the trajectory of a previous comet in 2005, which I don't recall hearing anything about. Then again, we were pretty drunk back then. More on that here:


  1. That's pretty damn intriguing that all this happened 5ish years ago and I am hearing about it now (Deep Impact)...thanks for the up to date teachings richard ritz. The one that passes late next year will be pretty crazy though. I will have my lawn chair ready. Thanks for the heads up mander man.

  2. Does anyone remember the Deep Impact thing? That's crazy that no one heard about this... You'd think it would have been at the forefront of Dubya's National Security fear-mongering media campaign.
