Rocks like the one that blew up over Russia could be tracked... But to what point?? They clearly are not going to do much more then damage a building or two. No one was reported killed that I know of. I'd much rather the scientists keep looking for the "game ending", Boss Monster asteroids, and let the little ones just take care of themselves.
A lot has to do with trajectory.  This one was glancing off the atmosphere and therefore exploded high up there.  One come straight in would have leveled the city.

And it's estimated that it was going 30,000 mph, which I think is about 8.3 miles per second.

London to New York is about 3500 miles. That means it would go that far in as little as 7.5 minutes.

Talk about a fast trip!

this is a great idea and amazing one as well.a defensive laser beam powerful enough to destroy meteoroids,asteroids and etc or aleast deflect them at least.but only for defensive reasons and purposes and beneficial ones as well.im not sure about the side effects though or governments trying to use it for other reasons of theirs.because well you know what governments really are and do and etc.

According to some SDI has been up there for years, why not use it, if in fact is does exist.
