Asteroid Deflection Should Be Next 'Sputnik Moment'
As if we haven't had enough doomsday fatigue from Mayan calendar, Nostradamus, and biblical scripture soothsayers, the Russian news agency, Ria Novosti, reported last week: "Russian Astronomers Predict Apophis-Earth Collision in 2036."
Popularized by Apollo 9 astronaut Rusty Schweickart, the 1,300-foot long near-Earth asteroid Apophis has been widely reported as a "doomsday asteroid." It has projected razor-thin near-misses with our frail blue planet in 2029, 2036, 2056, 2068, and beyond.
NASA has said they don't think this one will hit us, but they still won't guarantee it. I like the ideas this article had for preventing a collision, and it should be taken seriously, finally. Apophis might be the best chance to practice some techniques.

Deuteronomy 18:10-12 (KJV)
10 There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, 11 or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritist, or one who calls up the dead. 12 For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord. (KJV)
