Submission + - Calif. scientists push plan to 'evaporate' asteroids (networkworld.com)

netbuzz writes: "While a good-size asteroid gives Earth a fly-by today and hundreds of Russians are being treated for injuries caused by an exploding meteor, two California scientists are proposing a plan that would, among other envisioned benefits, “evaporate” potentially dangerous space rocks using an array of lasers. “This system is not some far-out idea from Star Trek,” says Gary Hughes, a researcher and professor from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo. “All the components of this system pretty much exist today.”"
