ART MEDIA WORTH MENTION (Selected Clips - Audio, Visual, Graphics)

Today's 'Art Media SELECTION' is: An AUDIO DISCUSSION from 'Universe Today' - Gravity Tractor Beam for Asteroids ---

Forget about nuclear weapons, if you need to move a dangerous asteroid, you should use a tractor beam. Think that's just Star Trek science? Think again. A team of NASA astronauts have recently published a paper in the Journal Nature. They're proposing an interesting strategy that would use the gravity of an ion-powered spacecraft parked beside an asteroid to slowly shift it out of a hazardous orbit. Dr. Stanley G. Love is member of the team and speaks to me from his office in Houston.
