Under the name of the Office for the coordination of Planetary Defense, NASA is studying possible countermeasures against an asteroid.
Office for the coordination of Planetary Defense. It may sound like a science fiction movie ruled by Weyland Yutani as Will Smith tries to save the world infecting an alien ship with a Mac, but the truth is that it is as real as life itself, at least the name and the intentions of NASA.
The U.S. Space Agency has launched a new office within its competence to be ready in the event that an asteroid might endanger our planet and the life that houses. Now, the Office for the coordination of Planetary Defense is fully official with a budget of 50 million dollars for remarks objects and asteroids.
At the moment, we don’t have any imminent threat, but NASA is already preparing for a hypothetical end of the world and it is working on the formulation of possible countermeasures against an asteroid – and no, Bruce Willis is not invited this time-. It is that it is grateful that NASA worry about an issue that is part of the public concerned. And we have all seen too many movies, but this time, rigor of NASA is going ahead.
