Russia To Thwart Asteroid's Collision With Earth

Post  Admin on Wed Dec 30, 2009 5:26 pm

Moscow, Russia (AHN) - Russia's space agency expects an asteroid to hit Earth in 2036 and has created an international project to prevent the collision by disrupting its trajectory.


Roscosmos chief Anatoly Perminov said Wednesday the project may involve the building and deployment of a spacecraft that will break the path of Apophis without using a nuclear explosive.

Roscosmos will invite other space agencies to join the project,

Discovered in 2004, Apophis is thrice larger than the Tunguska Meteorite and is predicted to pass near Earth from 2029 to 2036. NASA initially has a similar forecast but has changed its reading.
