    Thumbs down Nice try.

    Let me try and explain this so even an idiot can understand.

    ex·tra·ter·res·tri·al
    [ek-struh-tuh-res-tree-uhl] Show IPA
    adjective
    1.
    outside, or originating outside, the limits of the earth.


    threat
    [thret] Show IPA
    noun
    2.
    an indication or warning of probable trouble:
    They are mainly talking about asteroids and other space debris. From the article that you didn't read fully, you dolt!

    Aliens, Asteroids and Space Junk

    While Hollywood films often address concerns about alien attacks, the recent Chelyabinsk asteroid injuring over 1,000 people in central Russia is a testament to the other dangers lurking in space.

    NEOs (near-earth object) striking Earth need to be at least about 100 feet to cause serious destruction to a populated area. Russia’s recent asteroid, for example, is estimated to have been about only 55 feet across.

    And experts estimate there are more than one million of these 100-foot plus asteroids out there.

    NASA announced this June that more than 10,000 asteroids and comets are near Earth (NEO) meaning they will approach uncomfortably close within 28 million miles.

    About 1,000 of these are the right size, about half a mile, to potentially unleash global catastrophic devastation to the planet upon impact.

    The Space Surveillance System has been fundamental to other aspects of defense particularly in protecting U.S. satellites.

    Our satellites are not just essential to the military for capabilities like GPS, surveillance and communication, but to civilians for weather tracking and advanced natural disaster warning through to watching your favorites sports delivered to your television through satellites.

    Knocking out GPS would not just inconvenience the lost driver and the military, critical national infrastructures like power grids, banking operations and transportation systems also rely on uninterrupted GPS access.

    For more than 5o years since the first man-made satellite launch, Earth's orbit has become increasingly cluttered with space junk. There is an estimated whopping half million pieces up there.

    While asteroids may need to be about 50 feet to cause damage to Earth, up in space debris as tiny as a centimeter pose a threat to our satellites to the extent it could even destroy one.

    So the Space Surveillance System also tracks and detects the space junk that may threaten American commercial and military satellites as well as the International Space Station and manned space flight missions.

    Oh yea? Who is better at detecting a threat? NASA or the United States Air Force?

    Every word that comes out of his mouth is a lie intended to distract us from the truth of Fast and Furious, Solyndra, Benghazi, IRS, NSA and every other intentional misuse of our government he has perpetrated.

    Doc is right on here, this guy posing as our leader will do anything to take heat off his ass.The fact is, he really don't have to.Because no one is going to do anything about it anyway.Guys I hate like hell to say it but,the Republicans have no intention of doing what they should,about his crimes.Lets face it,if they were looking out for their constituents as they should be,his first crime against us would not be going into effect.......Socialized Medicine.It's mighty damn funny of who is on the list of exemption.I have always supported the GOP,even though I am a Conservative Constitutionalists.I think it is time We The People send both the major parties a serious message and vote Tea Party. They can't fuck it up much worse than these two parties already have.Give them a chance.....This is just my humble opinion
