Clever idea. To prevent nuclear annilation of most life on Earth you annilate all life in Earth 🤣

This is the out-of-the-box thinking my tax dollars are good for.

Bonkers is right. You can maybe stop a planet, but you can NOT stop the wind. It wouldn't be almost as bad as a nuclear bomb, it would be 10,000x times worse. Stopping the planet would literally destroy all life on Earth. The winds would be 1000mph minimum and any form of life on the surface would be stripped away. Not surprised the US Government wanted to end the world.

Is this feasible even with enough rockets? I guess if rockets were fixed to the ground they could be huge.

I’m guessing the reason it was scrapped is because that every military or NASA aerial experiment and calculation for propulsion in the atmosphere is done under the premise of a flat, non-rotational earth.
