Reflection on Asteroid Deflection

                                                            Unlike the dinosaurs
                                                              the human species
                                                                is at least trying
                                                                 to keep an eye
                                            on those potentially very nasty space rocks.

"Asteroid Day Live" on Friday, 30th June 2017

                            30th June 2017 could become an "impactful" new-media event,
                         as this will be "the first-ever global 24-hour broadcast about space,
                                                         and specifically asteroids".

Making "Space Dirt": a clean-cut project by DSI

                                          Deep Space Industries have started delivering
                                                             space dirt made on Earth
                                                     (i.e." asteroid regolith simulants ")
                                                                    to NASA 
                                                and are expected to produce more 
                                for the scientific community and the space mining industry.

Not promising the moon, but ...

                               The European Space Agency remains staunchly consistent
                                    in its quest to create habitable structures on the moon
                                         "using all resources available at the destination".
