Nuking Dangerous Asteroids Might Be the Best Protection, Expert Says – HOLLY NOTE: On the other side of the discussion, depending on the asteroid's size, if the nuke is placed incorrectly, it could shatter instead of deflect and send large pieces hurtling toward our planet. Relative to size, it could leave Earth, what's left, having a very bad day. How exactly to deal with an asteroid threat is still very much in debate mode. Seemingly easy answers aren't always the best especially those that are untested as is this. By no means, is this a resolved issue. Scientists claiming this is the answer is yet another 'no worries' statement. While a major asteroid impact is beyond our control so there is no point in worrying, this article is a fake feel-good only.

As George pointed out, thankfully these flares are pointing away from earth, but they are from the Sun's eastern limb, which is rotating in Earth's direction. Check this video. It is mighty! After the initial blast off the eastern (left) limb, look at the ricochet on the right side! This is one big bad boy!
