NASA approved to test new technology that will PUNCH an asteroid headed toward Earth

It would be impressive if technology existed that could deflect an asteroid on a path toward Earth and save mankind from devastating impact. Well, NASA plans to test new technology that aims to do just that.

On Wednesday’s show, Pat Gray and Jeff Fisher detailed how NASA has approved a project called the Double Asteroid Redirection Test, the aim of which is to throw a “small” asteroid off course in October 2022.

Pat called the technology amazing and later added that it would be impressive if we have the capability to move an asteroid out of its flight path. Watch the clip for more from Pat.

AOC: ‘COVID relief should be drafted with a lens of reparations’ for ‘Black + Brown communities’

In a Friday morning tweet, freshman Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) wrote that any future relief legislation should be drafted with a view toward providing reparations for minority communities because, she said, the disease has disproportionately affected those communities.

It is, by and large, true that wealthy people tend to live longer and have better health outcomes, as we have repeatedly emphasized here at TheBlaze as a reason that it is vitally important to get the economy moving again — not so that people can have more money, but so they can live longer.

And it is also true that the economic downturn is at least somewhat disproportionately affecting certain minority communities. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the overall American workforce is 12.3% “Black or African American” and 17.6% “Hispanic or Latino.” Meanwhile, the leisure and hospitality industry, which has been hit the hardest by the coronavirus shutdown by far, is 13.1% black and 27.0% Hispanic.

The question remains, however, whether the proper response to the economic damage caused by coronavirus should be directed to people specifically because of their skin color, or because they work in industries that have been devastated by the shutdown. Presumably, workers of all colors in the leisure and hospitality industries will be devastated by the loss of several weeks’ pay.

Still, as compared with some of her other coronavirus pronouncements, this one is actually not as bad as it could have been. As BlazeTV host Stu Burguiere has pointed out: almost literally every single word that has come out of her mouth about this crisis has been wrong.
