Oh Crap! Russia Plans >Blow Up Asteroids With NUCLEAR BOMBS to Save Earth

Russia Developed Plan to Blow Up Asteroids Headed For Earth With NUCLEAR BOMBS in Bid to Save the Planet

  • Warhead would detonate on asteroid in deep space to alter its orbit
  • Was part of European Commission's NEOShield project


Daily Mail UK, 19 January 2016


Russian space bosses developed plans to blow up asteroids heading for Earth with nuclear weapons, it has been revealed.

The project, funded by the European Commission, was part of a program called NEOShield to look at ways of dealing with a killer asteroid headed for Earth.

It would impact the asteroid in deep space, creating a jet-thrust effect which would alter its orbit, deflecting it away from earth.

THE ASTEROID THREAT


Small space rocks rain down on Earth constantly, with most disintegrating as they blaze through the atmosphere.

About 65 million years ago, an asteroid or comet roughly six miles (10 km) in diameter crashed into what is now Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, triggering global climate changes that killed off the dinosaurs along with about 75 percent of life that existed at the time, scientists say.

More recently, a 65-foot-wide (20 m) asteroid broke apart over Chelyabinsk, Russia, in February 2013, shattering windows and damaging buildings.
More than 1,000 people were injured by flying debris.

NASA is working to map potentially dangerous asteroids and comets that pass within 30 million miles (48 million km) of Earth.

'Work was distributed among various participants from different countries and organisations, and work on deflecting dangerous space objects with nuclear explosions was conducted by Russia' between 2012 and 2015, the Central Scientific Research Institute of Machine Building, part of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, said in a press release

The stationing and use of nuclear weapons in space is banned under the Outer Space Treaty of 1967 - although Roscosmos believed it would be lifted if their weapon was ever needed.

'If the asteroid threat becomes a matter of serious damage or even the very existence of life on Earth, that ban would naturally be lifted,' it claimed.

A strike from a mid to large sized asteroid or comet would have catastrophic effects around the world; it's widely thought that a comet strike spurred the extinction of the dinosaurs.

The Telegraph said the team concluded that the safest method would be to carry out the detonation while the asteroid was still in deep space, and the aim would be to alter the object's course and direct it away from the Earth, rather than to destroy it.

The project's site describes the plan as 'possibly the most effective yet controversial method of deflecting the largest asteroids that could hit our planet.

'This technique requires the use of a nuclear explosive close to an asteroid.
'The blast causes the outer layers of the asteroid to evaporate, acting just like rocket fuel, pushing the asteroid away from Earth.
'This is very different to the usual picture used in Hollywood of asteroids being blown up. Its thought to be a much safer and more effective way of safeguarding the Earth.'

Bombs were one option NEOShield researchers looked into.

NASA'S ASTEROID OFFICE

NASA'S new program will face the threat of deadly near-Earth objects head on.
Washington based Planetary Defense Coordination Office will spearhead the ongoing search for asteroids and comets passing near Earth's orbit, and will work with disaster relief agencies to develop emergency response plans.

The space agency says there are no known threats to date, but near approaches in the recent past are reminders of the potential hazards.

Other proposals include a 'kinetic impactor,' which would attempt to alter an asteroid's course by crashing a spacecraft into it, and a 'gravity tractor,' which would use the small gravitational attraction between an asteroid and a nearby spacecraft to nudge it onto a different orbit.

The revelations came as Russia announced plans to establish an early warning centre to scan the skies for potentially dangerous objects on a collision course with earth.

The 'space barrier' project would use four observation satellites - two in geostationary orbit around the earth and two following the Earth's obit around the sun - to scan space for any sizeable asteroid that could present a threat to the planet.

'It's a unique concept and may be the most effective for proactive detection of dangerous celestial bodies 30 days or more prior to their entry into the Earth's atmosphere,' the Institute said.

NEOShield brought together 11 research institutions, including Queen's University Belfast and the Surrey Space Centre at the University of Surrey UK.




A three-year follow up program, called NEOShield-2, was launched in March 2015.

'As many scientific researches highlight it, impacts of near-Earth objects (NEOs) have contributed to mass extinctions and evolution,' the project's website states.

'Moreover it is a proven fact that NEOs will continue to hit the Earth at irregular intervals in the future, with the potential for catastrophic damage to life and property.

'With the experience and results gained from the former NEOShield project, the NEOShield-2 consortium now is very well equipped to address all aspects of this call, including the development of a European strategy for future research and mission-related endeavours'
