Scientists push plan to ‘evaporate’ asteroids using lasers (for real).

Tied to the heads of space sharks, apparently.

The thing is, you'd never get Russia or China to agree to letting the US anything in space capable of delivering 1.4 megatons of energy to the surface.

Also, the name of the planet orbiting satellite that shoots a massive laser that destroys heavenly bodies? That's right, the DE-STAR, or Directed Energy Solar Targeting of Asteroids an exploRation. I thought the White House put the kibosh on that already?
