robotic company Honeybee robotics demonstrated its concept of space gun to shoot at the asteroids. Using computer animation company showed three options for dealing shotgun to study the strength of the asteroid's surface. The first option involves shooting the ball with a fragile shell within which retroreflective liquid (like balls are used in paintball). By the nature of the liquid splashing the company offers to determine the characteristics of the asteroid's surface. In two other embodiments proposed to use solid balls and the material characteristics measured by analyzing the indentations or bouncing velocity projectile from the surface. The concept of the device is presented for the project NASA's asteroid diversion (ARM). The project assumes that the space probe approach with one of the situated near Earth asteroids, pick up material for analysis on Earth and spend some measurements in place, including protection technology will test the Earth from asteroids. After that, the spacecraft will capture cobblestone surface manipulator and deliver it to orbit the Moon for further study.
