    Gawd I fucking hate Express. They have a new “doom asteroid” post up every 3 nanoseconds, which then get put on my newsfeed in place of literally any other science article that might be worth reading.Report

    Well, there’s also the pro-SMOD (Sweet Meteor-o-Death) contingent that thinks a major asteroid strike would be an improvement on the current state of affairs. I mean, Bloomberg? Come on, SMOD!Report

    If we have to accept the dichotomy of “NASA is a boondoggle” vs. “NASA is a moral imperative,” I’d probably be in the “boondoggle” camp.

    But the “civilization insurance” idea–along with what I suspect may be many things I enjoy and that make life better for people–remind me that the dichotomy is false.Report
