Earth in the Crosshair
by Bo Widerberg
A meteorite, several miles in diameter had us in its cross-hair. We built a huge H-bomb, and with a rocket sent it up to either destroy or deflect this mountain in the sky. Instead of deflecting the meteorite, the bomb smashed it to pieces. Now instead of one huge meteorite that would have fallen close to Midway Island, we now had thousand that will hit around the entire world.
