Scientists at the Institute of Astronomy have developed a "handbook" for space protecting the Earth
Commissioned by the Ministry of Emergency Situations of the Institute of Astronomy of Russian scientists have developed a "handbook" for space protecting the Earth.
It, in particular, described in detail scenarios possible disasters. Russian specialists offer a variety of ways to prevent the collision of cosmic bodies with the Earth. The most surprising among them — to paint the surface of the asteroid into a different color. As a result, change the reflectivity of the space object, and it deviates from its path by 1-2 degrees. Technically, this operation does not pose serious problems.
