I just saw the movie “don’t look up” and without spoilers, the USA chooses a very controversial way to deal with a comet coming to Earth.
But in real life, how would things works out? Who is in charge of space? It can’t be the UN as they are completely toothless on Earth anyway.
If there was a comet threat and the USA says we have to divert it and Russia say no way, we have to blow it up. What would happen? Would both countries send their teams to the comet and fight each other once they arrive?
