    This is why it is important for the government to encourage asteroid mining, so the technology exists to deflect and process hazardous NEA.

      Yes. Though going out years in advance and mining a giant threatening asteroid to death a bit at a time wouldn’t have made Armageddon nearly as exciting. And, as a hard-rock miner instead of a boss oil platform roughneck, Bruce Willis would have been denied the scene where he was hitting golf balls into the ocean. Hard to do that in a mine shaft.
