    IDM - #002: Solar System alignment defense

    IDM - #002: Solar System alignment defense


    Project #002

    Topic:
    "Solar System alignment defense";
    For years Nasa and other space-research organizations have worried about the effects of a metor coming into the earth's rotation, yet it has now come to the attention of these organizations that for earth to survive as it is, ALL the planets in the system must be held in their natural orbit around the sun. If a metor were to destroy mars, the system itself would be thrown out of loop.

    It is up to you to design a defense system to protect the entire solar system from catastrophes.

    The guidelines are:
    • [b]The defense system must beable to protect our entire solar system
    • [b]It must have ability to protect against metor-threats.
    • Cannot upset the balance of the solar system.


    Deadline:
    May 31.

    I'm assumig the orbits don't travel in straight lines, but also move up and down in that orbit. But even so, in bajimillions of years, and/or in the supposed bajamillion years before now, shouldn't have/will pluto hit our old firend, the neptune.

    No, the orbits are tilted and never actually intersect. But it is interesting to note that from time to time, Pluto isn't the farthest planet from the sun. Be sure to save that trivia gold for your next awesome party. Chicks dig astronomy facts.

    just a lil info on asteroids

    theres 3 basic types of asteroids.
    1 a single asteroid
    2 a pair of asteriods (normally rotating around each other)
    3 a small cluster or group of smaller asteroids.

    the problem is that each has its difficulty in being destroyed. the first can be destroyed by a nuke if small. however if larger a nuke would do nothing more then put a dent in it

    2 since theres 2 asteriods you need 2 bombs or one well placed on that could destoy 1 and blast the on of cousre enough to miss a planet

    3. believe it or this would be the hardest to defend against. it'd be extremely dificult to manuever a nuke into the middle of the cluster, but more then likey after the explosion the pieces would simply come back together due to the gravity's atraction.

    anyways just a lil info to think about (from discovery channel BTW)
