NASA Plans 'Armageddon' Spacecraft To Blast Asteroid With Nuclear Warheads
[link to www.flightglobal.com]
NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center has designed a nuclear-warhead-carrying spacecraft, to be launched by the US agency's proposed 's Ares V cargo launch vehicle, to deflect an asteroid that could threaten all life on Earth.

The 8.9m (29ft)-long "Cradle" spacecraft would carry six 1,500kg (3,300lb) missile-like interceptor vehicles that would carry one 1.2MT B83 nuclear warhead each, with a total mass of 11,035kg.

Launched by an Ares V, the spacecraft would leave low-Earth orbit using a 45,359kg liquid-oxygen/liquid-hydrogen fuelled "kick stage".

The spacecraft's target near-Earth object (NEO) is the Apophis asteroid, which will pass by the Earth within the orbit of the Moon in April 2029.

For the study, however, its orbit was changed to bring it into a "dead-centre" collision course with Earth and its mass was assumed to be 1,000,000kg. The spacecraft's possible launch dates were 2020 and 2021.

By the 2020s NASA concluded that "the nuclear interceptor option can deflect NEOs of [100-500m diameter] two years before impact, and larger NEOs with at least five years warning".

The Cradle would have solar arrays, radiators, a light detection and ranging (lidar) instrument, a set of wide and narrow field of view (W/NFOV) cameras for guidance, a reaction control system and an avionics and communications package.

Each interceptor vehicle, with a terminal rendezvous package (TRP), would have a hydrazine-fuelled engine, a nitrogen tetroxide reaction control system and a lidar, and W/NFOV cameras for guidance.

The first vehicle/TRP could be launched, for a stand-off detonation near the NEO, 5h before the last interceptor's release, or the six TRPs could arrive at 1h intervals where the Cradle is 100h from intercept.

Maybe it's not nuclear-tipped, but carrying supplies and equipment to sustain a small band of astronauts who will establish a colony on Mars?

I don't believe the Nukes would be put into space until they had a target.

Re: NASA Plans 'Armageddon' Spacecraft To Blast Asteroid With Nuclear Warheads
the only bad thing is that they could launch those warheads at any target on earth from outer space doesnt it make you wonder about that whats to stop them from launching one at this country just to blame on someone else to keep a war going or to start up another one

Even developing, let alone deploying, Nuclear weapons is a violation of international space treaties.

It may cause others to make nuclear space vehicles.

Yes, you're right of course... they should just let a 500 meter wide asteroid hit the Earth and gouge a 10km wide crater in the middle of someone's city.

they always said though didn't they, that nukes would only be a ''last resort'' for dealing with this problem?

So, are we in the last chance saloon, or what?

they are hiding something from us, without a doubt.

Yes, I know that's one of the most obvious statement ever made in the history of GLP, but I just HAD to say it, OK? lol
