â€ťToday neither Russia nor the United States is capable of shooting down objects from outer spaceâ€ť
â€”Â Dmitry Rogozin, Vice-Premier Russian Defense
CHELYABINSK, RUSSIAÂ â€” It now looks as if the 50 foot chunk of rock that hurled toward earth Friday, causing a massive shockwave upon impact and over $33 million in damages was the biggest meteor to strike earth in over 100 years prompting new concerns with the Russian government.
The earth, now much more populated in 2013 than it was during theÂ 1907 Tunguska meteor explosionÂ that took placeÂ in the Siberian region of Russia, adding to the odds that eventually a major city could one day be struck by a rogue rock. In case of such an occurrence nations should be able to one day protect or defend themselves against flying objects, but as of now there is no defense.
However, does technology exist that would allow asteroids to be used as an offensive weapon against an unruly nation?
On July 4, 2005Â NASAâ€™s Deep Impact spacecraftÂ successfully targeted and shot a projectile impactor at a comet in space to study the effects and possibly change trajectory of the object. Could such tests lead to (or have led to) the creation of an advanced space based weapon platform?
Recently the head of Russiaâ€™s Space Monitoring Loborotary Vladimir Lipunov stated,Â â€ťIt is high time Russia should start investing heavily in building an advanced space danger monitoring and warning system and a system capable of destroying such super bombs falling on usâ€ť signifying the urgency that the Russianâ€™s think there is a chance for future encounters.
Has a nation capitalized yet on such a diabolic weapon, which if used could be blamed on an act of God as a defenseless nation awaits impact?
