Thanks for posting.

Best coverage on the asteroid I've seen. My question is that if this electrical field can shield us from asteroids, why are there so many craters on earth?

i know a bit about the electric field theory

I know a bit about the electric field theory... but I don't think that asteroid exploding was due to electricity.

I'm not sure how or from whom he heard the asteroid exploded from internal heating... but scientist familiar with exploding asteroids will tell you that the impact of of the asteroid into the atmosphere is like a piece of glass hitting concrete. It blew apart fragmenting into billions of shards at hyper velocity speeds turning into vaporized gaseous rock which is basically what tnt or any other explosive does.

Tools of war are not always obvious. The worst weapon is an idea planted in the mind of man. Prejudices can kill, suspicion can destroy, and a thoughtless, frightened search for a scapegoat has an everlasting fallout all of its own.

Rewrite the science books. :)

In the beginning of a change the patriot is a scarce man, and brave, and hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds, the timid join him, for then it costs nothing to be a patriot.
