Expect more stories about meteroids in the next time. After all it was Wernher v.Braun who blew the whistle about a "campaign" after those "War on Drugs", "War on Terror", ..."War on hemrhoids"?

As i read these articles i still wonder why certain details don't expand
the discussion here and elsewhere...
See my post at NASA Spacecraft Reveal Largest Crater in Solar System:Last week ther was a big article in Science Mag. about an impact at Chesapeake Bay from some 35 mil. years ago....Duck and Cover!
As the "War on ´error" is running out of it´s hypocritic fuel - the next howler is ready for another round of shocking and awing our lovely blue marble: "War on Asteroids"...
Then there was this Mars "simulation" about an impact, and see that Germany (DLR) wants to launch a satellite especially for monitoring Near Earth Objects.
Even as little as 5 years ago any scientist appearing in the media and commenting upon the likelihood of e.g. asteroid strikes would give you better odds of winning the lottery two weeks in succession. But nowadays it seems hardly a week goes by without some piece of multi-million dollar hardware being launched or at least announced.
They might have left it a bit late for 2012.
This whole 2012 thing really has got to go from these discussions. Planets will interact, based on their very nature, but since the predictions that the Mayans made were when the planets and indeed the earth were in different locations means that their little "clockwork predictable universe" is just as circumspect as the Greek Epicycle theory. Basically, these theories beginnings do not relate specialized knowledge, they are records. The translations over time only add to their 'air of mystery' but we should immediately be wary of abandoning our own reasoning for faith.
