Incoming! Meteors And Us
« on: January 25, 2014, 03:20:06 PM »
There's a long history of meteor strike stories in SF, no doubt partly inspired by memories of the 1908 Tunguska Meteorite and the K-T Meteoriyte that wiped out the dinosaurs. Clarke's "Rendezvous with Rama" inspired a SpaceWatch system to keep an eye out for such threats. How realistic is such a system? How far along are we towards one? What are its limitations? Who should fund such efforts, and who is doing so now?
