You know, I bet if they went full-on with the 100+ Megaton version of this bomb, you probably COULD get away with those original plans from the 90's to blow up an incoming meteor, and not have to worry too much about smaller chunks hitting us. None of this pussy gravity-tractor shit, or pushing it around with lasers or landing a rocket engine on it.
