Given the processing power of (say) a modern phone, why is the computer such an enormous device? Okay, it's gone down from a backpack to a fanny pack, but surely it should be able to have a pocket sized processing device to do the job.
Surely there should be "an app for that"
We might even have the Skylon spaceplane to send people up if everything goes to plan, then you can stuff Proton and SpaceX
Yes, but we were talking manufacturing/ design capability and presence of the engineering skills to get us there, not who owns it

Have you seen how much effect a nuke is likely to have on a significantly sized NEO? None whatso fucking ever. If an NEO is enough to wipe us out, it won't be screwed by a nuke.
Also the ideal launch point for such a nuke would be from space, not Earth.

On top of that there is also Article 10 of the ECHR "Freedom of Expression". Whilst the European Convention on Human Rights is separate to the EU, it is mandatory for all EU members to also regard the Articles of the Convention as binding and effectively a Constitution for all EU member nations. It is ironic that different nations interpret Article 10 differently and thus "Expression" which is legal in one EU member can be illegal in another. Other Articles may also come into play too (Privacy, Association, Marriage etc)
The irony is that the EU was intended to create a **Single** market for goods and services. Geoblocking, especially at a national or regional scale, should be anathema to the EU.
