NASA maneuver for protection against asteroids

In Washington, simulate space, researchers from all over the world these days, how the world can prepare for a potentially catastrophic collision of our planet with an asteroid.

NASA-chief Jim Breidenstein's self, to open the maneuver. Space researchers from all over the world simulate for five days, what you can do, and must, if an Asteroid is on a collision course moves with the earth.

Breidenstein refers again and again to the 20-Meter Meteorite, which destroyed 2013 in Russia more than 7000 buildings. The game plan in Washington is a rock that is between 100 and 300 meters tall, 2024, the earth so close that he hits with a probability of 1 to 100.

"We need to make sure that people understand that it is Hollywood. It is about protecting the only planet we know that there is life."

the aim is the development of international technologies

as well As in the Science-Fiction movie, this maneuver is quite a question whether the space technology is far enough to be able to in case of emergency, save the earth.

"A goal is to develop international technologies, how to asteroid close to earth to distract or destroy. A Japanese Mission, in April, an Asteroid was fired, is used to collect information."

We must, however, stone hotel, know the full extent of the threat to be able to respond. An estimated 25,000 large asteroids are in our solar system. Only a third of them are registered, described and its trajectory calculated.

"For the friends from Europe here: big enough to destroy an entire European country."

How authorities can respond immediately?

And for all you want to calculate where you are in 100 or 200 years, pass also to the later generations about the dangers from space.

scientists are around to take care of but also questions the threat. How do you make sense of the population? How do politicians around the world to meet, rapidly and effectively decisions? And what must, what can you do if the disaster happens and a large Asteroid strikes?
