Russia and the United States will work together to improve protection against meteorites and other space threats, Russias emergencies minister said on Tuesday following a joint Russia-US working group meeting in Washington.
We have decided that the US Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and Russia's Emergencies Ministry will work together to develop systems to protect people and territory from cosmic impacts, Russias Emergencies Minister Vladimir Puchkov told journalists.
The meeting also covered other kinds of natural emergencies, such as recent years' extreme weather in Russia and United States, but it was cooperation to counter space threats that stole the limelight at the news conference.
I believe we can make a technological breakthrough in this area if the Emergencies Ministry and FEMA supervise this project, attracting the finest minds and research groups including in Canada, Europe, China, and Southeast Asia, Puchkov added.
On February 15, a meteor entered the Earths atmosphere over Russias Chelyabinsk region and broke into pieces at an altitude of about 5-10 kilometers. The blast-wave shattered class and damaged buildings in the region, and over 1,500 people sought medical assistance.
Members of the scientific community in Russia and America have suggested a variety of approaches to counter this threat, from launching ballistic missiles to using unmanned rockets and asteroids in a kind of space billiards.
On June 22, a huge chunk of the meteorite that hit Russia earlier this year was found at the bottom of Lake Chebarkul.
FEMA? Then we’re doomed.

This is Bizzare, I am reading a book on Reagan and the Berlin wall and Reagan said to Gorbi “If America was attacked from someone from outer space, would you help”? Gorbi said “of course, would you help us”? To which Reagan answered “We would”. Reagan talked a few times about an “outer threat”. This is totally interesting.
The Day After Roswell...”
I have my doubts.....
But not any that the Gov’t would not use this “threat” to excuse “marshal Law”
It’s Martial Law (as in military) and any excuse will probably do with this crew.
About 9 months after the crash, I was born. I have RH-negitive blood, so reading books like that might just make me homesick.
Thanks for the correction...I am chagrined
Many people think that’s how it’s spelled, not just you.
I have seem Mr. Corso many times in interviews and he is a very credible source. As is the Public affairs officer who released the initial report to the media.
“..I have seem Mr. Corso many times in..”
I want to see some evidence.........
Thanks for posting!
