Here’s how MIT wants to save Earth from killer asteroids

  Here’s how MIT wants to save Earth from killer asteroids If science fiction movies have taught us anything, it's that saving Earth from a killer asteroid is going to take some big drills and probably nuclear weapons. Thankfully, if a particularly large space rock ever were to threaten Earth, our plan of attack would probably be a bit more level-headed. That is, as long as we saw the threat far enough in advance. A team of researchers from MIT has thought long and hard about how to save Earth from a killer asteroid, and they’ve come up with a plan that wouldn’t require any particularly drastic measures. The key to the plan is being able to spot the object well ahead of time.

Chester Weger re-enacted the killings of three west suburban women in Starved Rock State Park on Nov. The parole board voted to delay his release by at least three months to approve the conditions of his parole. Based on his confession, Weger was convicted of killing Lillian Oetting, 50, but he

He said he was coerced into making the confession — threatened, he told Drummond, by the sheriff.

Drummond said Weger said the sheriff told him, “‘You’re going to ride the thunderbolt, Chester!’ meaning he’s going to get the electric chair.”

In that 2010 interview, Drummond asked Weger, “Why not show some remorse – say you did it even if you didn’t and get out?”

Weger replied: “Why should I feel remorse then if I never killed them? I mean, I feel sorry for the people being dead, but I’m not going to admit that I done something I never done.”

After the Prisoner Review Board granted Weger’s parole in November, Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul tried to delay it.

But an evaluation found that Weger could not be held indefinitely as a violent sex offender.

Weger is scheduled to live at a halfway house on Chicago’s Near West Side.
