Hello Asgardians! A new article has been posted to the Asgardia Chronicles talking about raising awareness of the threat of asteroids and hints at the plan Asgardia has for helping mitigate that threat. What do you think of some of the global initiatives and what Dr. Ashurbeyli has planned? How do you think it will be put into action? Let's hear your voice! Kind regards, Rebekah Berg, Lead Community Administrator, Asgardia

Maybe we should start the discussion with the Asteroid Belt. Here are some pics from google: Grtz, Dirk.

I am wondering about the method we should use to neutralise dangerous asteroids. Destroying them with an explosive device could result in the formation of a cloud of sharpnel which could still wreck damage upon Earth. However we can't just stop an asteroid in its tract. I submit my idea: ...

An idea, i have seen lots of idea's with forces but what if we could add to that a chemical reaction. Some stupid idea maybe but if the outer part would be from ice we could for example diminish that one side of the asteroid with a salty chemical to ...

@Dirk Baeyens: Good point. And chemical rockets provide thrust, right? If you could induce a reaction, the resulting energy would generate a force onto the asteroid, and even take away some (albeit tiny) solid volume away from the asteroid, too.

The trouble with asteroids and deflecting them with either or any solutions available to us is that we detect them too late for us to make any changes to their trajectory. Other than blowing them out of the sky with nukes we'd have very little (if any) time to make ...

I think we should have at least a super-computer model with all body's from the solar system. The best thing to do for that would be to send satellites in all directions with detection systems. Grtz, Dirk.

@HaddenB The Earth is relatively small. I remember the original model for Apophis' collision with Earth in 2036. Even then the asteroid wasn't going to hit the Earth at the center of its disc, at a perpendicular angle; but actually hit the Earth at the edge of its disc, almost ...

Concerning the global initatives, more could be done sooner IMHO - but it's a start. Concerning proposed plans from Dr Ashurebyli, I didn't really notice any. It's pretty difficult to comment on "satellite constellations" when there's no details concerning distances and function of constellations or the mechanism upon which this ...
