Over the years, as they’ve introduced “Super futuristic technology” in the movies, I’ve never really thought about when those things would be come a reality. The more I step back and look at where we are on the technological timeline, the more apparent it is that the time is now. And if we’ve seen it in a movie in the past 25 years, we either have it, or they’re working on getting it to us.
I don’t think this one has ever been on the radar.
- Capture an asteroid
- Put asteroid in earth’s orbit
- Build a floating skyscraper that hangs from the asteroid
Apparently NASA has a mission in 2021 to relocate an asteroid.
It seems like that with every year that passes, the future gets closer and closer.
