    Charles Bolden, the chief of the Nasa, has warned that the US space agency's best advice on how to handle a large asteroid heading towards New York City is "pray".

    Mr Bolden told US lawmakers that prayer was all that the US or anyone could currently do about unknown asteroids and meteors that may be on a collision course with Earth.

    An asteroid estimated to be have been about 55 feet (17 metres) in diameter exploded on Feb 15 over Chelyabinsk, Russia, generating shock waves that shattered windows and damaged buildings. More than 1,500 people were injured.

    Later that day, a larger, unrelated asteroid discovered last year passed about 17,200 miles (27,681 km) from Earth, closer than the network of television and weather satellites that ring the planet.

    That's good advice even if an asteroid will not hit the earth.
    Be Not Afraid.

    A federal official advising us to pray? Does the ACLU know about this?

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!

    NJ: There is little if anything we can do re another possible Tunguska

    Actually, there is.

    Get our asses off Earth and colonise.

    Moon, Mars. If anyone wants to know how we do this, ask me. Believe it or not, it's simplicity itself.
