When An Unwelcome Neighbor Comes to Call

What should we do if faced with a true apocalyptic crisis--a large space object in an earth-intersecting orbit? Here are several scholarly papers from this week's Planetary Defense Conference in Washington, D.C.

Here is coverage from the Sunday Telegraph, and the Guardian.

Whether that skewed coverage points to a political bias on the part of big media, or simply an ignorance of scientific reality, will be left as an exercise for the reader.

Check out this Bio of William E. Burrows, a presenter at the PDC, and author of "The Survival Imperative: Using Space to Protect Earth." Burrows is on the advisory board of the Lifeboat Foundation, as well as a co-founder of ARC--Alliance to Rescue Civilization.
