“The EADP initiative should have been done sooner”  George Vardaxis, Aerospace Engineering

The HAIV is the best current solution for late warning events. At the present time there are other existent methods, however they do not have the capability to deflect an asteroid enough to effectively minimize its risk. By using the HAIV, Earth is given a better chance, with a much smaller percentages of the asteroid mass possibly impacting the planet, if any at all. In addition, being prepared and having a plan is crucial, since Earth is under threat every day, with small asteroids burning up in the atmosphere.
