I published on March 4, 2013, a new commentary on the policy issues surrounding what to do about asteroid/meteor/comet impacts. Chicken Little Was Right just appeared on the National Air and Space Museum’s blog. It notes that yes, indeed, the sky is falling. Cetainly the impact that took place in mid-February at Chelyabinsk, Russia, provides an important object lesson. We must undertake prudent actions to mitigate the threat.
