    Yee HAW!
    Read the whole article... particularly this bit "Knowing what is inside Tempel 1 could assist in later missions aimed at nudging a so-called doomsday space rock away from Earth. Such an impact could cause catastrophic damage, and scientists have been working to identify potentially threatening asteroids and comets, known as near-Earth objects, that might have the potential to collide with our planet."

    If they can figure out how to do that (eliminate potential threats to our planet) then I say "more power to them".

    Yeah, there might be more immediate threats that money could be spent on.... but who knows how long it will take to figure this particular threat out? "Be Prepared".
