Re: Space Rock 'on collision Course (I. S.)

Do you have any ideas on how you might move a rock 2000 meters wide? The Great Pyramid of Khufu was originally about 146 meters high by 230 meters on the sides. We couldn't move all the stones in it 1 meter in the next 16 years even with today's best technology and gravity. And you are going to move a rock 13,000 times larger that is on average half way around the sun and out around Mars in a weightless environment where you have nothing to push against? And not only move it but move it thousands of miles (millions to be on the safe side)? Well, on the bright side, at least you have 16+ years to figure that one out.
