Mirrors could beat asteroid threat

Posted by Janett on October 7, 2007

ACTOR Bruce Willis had to sacrifice his life in a nuclear explosion to save the world from an incoming asteroid.

But a scientist now reckons the job could be done with a set of mirrors. The hit 1998 movie Armageddon showed Willis landing on the asteroid and drilling a hole before setting off a bomb to blow it apart.

Space expert Dr Massimiliano Vasile, however, told an audience of experts at Jodrell Bank Observatory that a network of orbiting satellites could reflect enough power from the sun to vaporise an asteroid.
