REQUESTED LEGISLATION RE: APOPHIS ASTEROID


On 4/16/09, I requested my Congressman Jerry Lewis, (R-CA- 41st),and Ranking Member of the House Appropriations Committee seek amendatory language to any pending legislation that would provide funding to the "STAR WARS PROGRAM" to DEFLECT the incoming APOPHIS ASTEROID OR ANY NEAR EARTH OBJECT (NEO). The APOPHIS ASTEROID is due to come within 18,000 miles of earth in 2029 and maybe closer in 2036. The 18,000 miles is closer than our existing COMMUNICATION SATELLITES. There is a chance that it will impact the earth in 2036!

Should it impact the earth in 2036 or thereafter, the APOPHIS ASTEROID would destroy all life on earth.
Below is a copy of a recent article that I have published on (NEOs):

SHOULDN'T NASA'S HIGHEST PRIORITY BE TO DEVELOP TECHNOLOGIES TO DEFLECT INCOMING COMETS AND ASTEROIDS, SIMILAR TO THE NEAR MISS RECENTLY, RATHER THAN TO EXPLORE POSSIBLE OTHER LIFE BEARING PLANETS?

IT APPEARS THAT NASA'S PRIORITIES ARE MISPLACED BY THE RECENT LAUNCH OF A SATELLITE TO EXPLORE OTHER POSSIBLE LIFE BEARING PLANETS. THIS MAYBE EXCITING TO THE EXTRATERRESTRIAL FANATICS IN NASA, BUT A HIT BY AN ASTEROID SIMILAR TO THE ONE THAT JUST MISSED EARTH THE OTHER WEEK CAN BE THE EARTH'S DOOM!

IT IS TIME TO STOP JUST EDUCATING THE PUBLIC ABOUT POSSIBLE COLLISIONS OF ASTEROIDS AND COMETS AND TO DEVELOP TECHNOLOGIES TO DEFLECT SUCH OBJECTS.

ADDENDUM: ON MARCH 10, 2009, THE HISTORY CHANNEL AIRED AN EPISODE THAT FURTHER FRUSTRATES MY CONCERN REGARDING THIS ISSUE. THE HISTORY CHANNEL POINTS OUT THAT EVEN IF A "NEAR EARTH OBJECT" (NEO) WAS DETECTED HEADING TOWARDS THE EARTH, THERE IS NO PROTOCOL IN PLACE TO DECIDE WHO WOULD ORDER MITIGATING MEASURES (DEFLECT THE OBJECT) TO DEFLECT THE OBJECT FROM ITS EARTH PATH. IN OTHER WORDS, NASA IS PREVENTED FROM DEFLECTING IT, BECAUSE NO ONE OR ENTITY IS CURRENTLY IN CHARGE TO ORDER THE NEO TO BE DEFLECTED.

THEREFORE THIS MATTER HAS BEEN REFERRED TO THE UNITED NATIONS FOR ACTION.

CURRENTLY, THE EARTH IS VULNERABLE TO A HIT BY A NEO!

EMAIL PRESIDENT OBAMA TO INTERVENE REGARDING THIS MATTER NOW!

***ADDENDUM #2: 4/15/09 --A POSSIBLE SOLUTION--
RECOMMEND INSTEAD OF CUTTING BACK FORMER PRESIDENT REAGAN'S STAR WARS PROGRAM,THAT IN ADDITION TO MISSLE DEFENSE, IT BE FUNDED TO DIVERT IN COMING COMETS AND ASTEROIDS, NEAR EARTH OBJECTS(NEO).
SOONER OR LATER, A (NEO) WILL BE HEADED ON A PATH TO BOMBARD THE EARTH!!!

What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of Totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty or democracy.
