Cathy Plesko
Cathy Plesko is a planetary scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, where she studies asteroids and comets, and how to prevent them from hitting the Earth. She did her undergraduate work in Astronomy and Physics at the University of Washington, and her Ph.D. in Computational Geophysics at University of California Santa Cruz. Her first con was NorWesCon 1993.


Earth Is Totally Unprepared For Asteroid Strike - The Camping Canuck

Dr. Cathy Plesko, a scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory, said at the meeting there were two ways humans might deflect an asteroid - a nuclear warhead or a kinetic impactor, which is basically a giant cannonball.
"Cannonball technology is actually very good technology, intercepting an object at high speed actually ends up being more effective than high explosives". Part of the scientists' concern is a lack of knowledge about the asteroids, comets, meteors and meteorites. "We don't have a lot of data about what the insides of asteroids or comets look like," Plesko said, "but based on what we know about physics and rock and ice we can guess."

Cathy Plesko, a scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory who is not in Guth's team, told The Guardian that there are two ways these deflection operations could go: either we equip a spacecraft with a nuclear warhead, or we build a "kinetic impactor" - basically, a giant cannonball.
"Cannonball technology is actually very good technology, intercepting an object at high speed actually ends up being more effective than high explosives," she said.
