What's really scary is they're talking about blowing asteroids up with nuclear weapons, giving countries an excuse to delay getting rid of their nuclear stock piles. I think I'm more afraid of nuclear fall-out than a possibility of an asteroid hitting me.

Sounds like just an excuse to weaponize space if you ask me......
