Should the real threat of an Asteroid be a defense issue? It would seem to me that Asteroids are a bigger threat to our nation then nuclear war(today), so it kind of makes sense to me that this would be a defense issue. As a defense issue it would be deserving of defense funding...
The Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) extinction event,[a] formerly known as the Cretaceous–Tertiary (K–T) extinction,[b] was a mass extinction of some three-quarters of plant and animal species on Earth—including all non-avian dinosaurs—that occurred over a geologically short period of time 66 million years (Ma) ago
Because they're a SERIOUS threat to the United states of America and the world...Shouldn't we be funding means to defend our self's from them???
