Sbsp Asteroids Neg

Recommended Posts

I'm not quite clear on how SBSP could possibly solve for asteroids. The energy beam emitted by SPS isn't anywhere near enough to stop a planet killer...is it some sort "we lead to the development of anti-asteroid tech" deal? At that point, you may as well make a status quo solves argument along with impact defense. Asteroids is a super easy impact to outweigh anyways so it probably ain't critical. Although impact turning it could be a brilliant move, as if something that solves for asteroids probably links right into space weaponization.

The deflection Dilemma turn is pretty awesome - if you can deflect an asteroid away from earth, it is comparitively more likely that someone would deflect an asteroid toward earth, either as an accident or as a weapon.

No impact, deflection bad, asteroids good. Boom. C.E. Byrd has the cites for asteroids good, SDI put out deflection bad, and you should already have no impact cards from your case neg(s).
