    They'll probably screw it up and redirect it right towards Earth...

    They have a space program just as good or better than ours.

    No they don't.

    NASA Watch has an interesting take on this.

    If Russias is better, why did they sell part of it to Tommy Bartlett's in the Wisconsin Dells?

    Leave it alone. It wont be here for another 20 years. Continue to monitor the situation, but don't do something stupid and cause more problems like HawkFromNorwalk said.

    Not a lot of people realize the full magnitude of all of what NASA does. When most people think of "NASA", they think of the manned space stuff. But manned space missions only account for about 5% of what NASA does, even though manned space missions consume about half of NASA's budget. NASA has, at any given time, probably 30 or 40 unmanned space missions going on simultaneously. Just take a look at jpl.nasa.gov and look at the list, it is really long. I doubt the Russians have more than 2 or 3. (Unmanned space missions have never been a priority for the Russians or the Soviets)

    Why don't they just just build that space elevator they've been talking about and sned someone up to the top floor to take care of it?

    On Friday, April 13, 2029, Apophis will pass Earth


    There are not many crowds or places in the country that have a better impact on the game than at Iowa State. The Cyclone fans are truly a sixth man. The place is so loud and always a fantastic crowd." - Former Kansas and current North Carolina head coach Roy Williams

    Perspective on Apophis' pass in 2029 attached.

    Kind of scary that Perminov doesn't seem to understand orbital mechanics...although I do think that a manned mission to Apophis in 2029 is a great idea. Challenging mission with a small gravity well to deal with, particularly good practice if a deflection mission IS ever necessary.

    Re: Russia May Send Spacecraft to Space To Knock Astroid

    I thought the world was ending in 2012? Why are we worried about 2029?


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Unlikely, since their principal method of acquiring technology has historically been theft.
