Paintballing an Asteroid


Did you ever have a nightmare about an asteroid hitting the Earth? Fear not, the bright minds at MIT in Boston came up with a solution for rogue asteroids: launching paintballs at them.
Seriously.
The idea is is that when Asteroids are made brighter, they'll reflect more sun radiation wich will knock them off course. A few million paints balls and a couple of years of radiation will do the job just nicely.
Not sure if it will work, but I just love the idea.
