We shoud erect defenses into distant Earth orbit. We know what happened to the dinosaurs; can we take a hint ?

@OmSigDAVID,
Despite the well known history of the dinosaurs' demise, there isn't much call for even a greater and more effective NEO (near Earth object) detection system from the greater public.

One would think that with the all too frequent news flash of another mile plus asteroid flyby on the national news that they'd be more of a clamor for some kind of international protection system.

Yes; a few summers ago, there were 2 movies
concerning our getting fatally smacked from above,
to no political effect. Human stupidity.

Its important that we spread human DNA
and supportive infrastructure to other celestial bodies,
beginning with the Moon.

A community of artificial space station satellites woud be good too, for insurance.
