    I think the only realistic thing we (as a human race) could have done was for Musk to get SpaceX to land a Tesla on it.

    Seems few are taking the potential for an extinction level asteroid impact as a real threat. No 'star wars' style defence system available yet, like Reagan wanted (to protect from rusky nukes). It's been 66 million years since the last one that did for the dinosaurs, so yeah, meh, not our problem. Unless we get unlucky...
    Maybe tomorrow, I'll want to settle down. Until tomorrow, I'll just keep moving on.

    Warn the various nuclear powers it was coming so they wouldn't retaliate and destroy us all?
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    10% less likely we'll be hit by that rock this year than a hard Br***t. So if it does hit, it looks like a crashing out a few weeks later.
