Could we divert a comet from impacting the earth?

Question asked by: mrquestion

Asked on: 03 Feb 2010

No there is nothing that we could currently do to stop a comet from impacting the earth.

Whilst small little space rocks could, perhaps, with enough notice, be diverted from their course, there is just nothing that could be done with something like a comet to stop it from impacting the earth with current technology and resources that are available.
