The Logistics of Defending Against Asteroids

A respite from working on how to get a package from point A to point B is to think about the meteor which hit Russia a few weeks ago.  Then think whether it was just pure dumb luck that it did not hit Chicago or are we really safe from this?

Unfortunately, it turns out, it is just pure dumb luck.

Which makes the fact that my fraternity brother from college, Dr. Ed Lu (and space shuttle astronaut),
is working on how to defend the earth from asteroids with his non profit B612 a good thing.  It makes me sleep better at night.

So, for a break, watch this quick Tedx video... You will enjoy it and be fascinated.
