I got this email with an important message that I wanted to share with you.
Here is a crazy idea:
Let’s take a spacecraft, launch it to space on top of a giant rocket, smash it forcefully
with an asteroid, and then wait and see what happens!
Sounds like fun, right?
Except this is some serious stuff.
For years, scientists have been concerned about the possibility of an asteroid colliding
with planet earth. Such a collision might be catastrophic; is there something we can do
to avoid it?
So this week, a spacecraft will collide with an asteroid. NASA scientists will be closely
tracking the results of the experiment. You can read about it here
They don’t expect the asteroid to break up.
They don’t believe that this small spacecraft will cause the asteroid to explode.
All they want is a little nudge.
Just a tiny push for the asteroid will be enough to alter its trajectory.
And if all works as planned, and we will ever spot an asteroid threatening our planet, we
will give it a little nudge – and save humanity.
It’s going to happen on Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year..
I will not be watching a live broadcast of this collision in space. Instead, I will be
spending most of my day praying in Synagogue.
When I open the prayer book, I will read how Rosh Hashanah is considered the day of
judgment. On this day, G-d decides everything that will happen in the coming year.
This sounds serious and scary.
Will my actions even matter? Can I, one person, make a real difference?
And then, I will think of NASA. I will remember how even one slight nudge, a tiny
movement that seems so insignificant, can save humanity.
Maimonides said: “One should see the world, and see himself as a scale with an equal
balance of good and evil. When he does one good deed the scale is tipped to the good –
he and the world is saved.”
On a micro level, even one small act can have a significant impact. A smile, words of
encouragement, or just showing someone we care about them can leave a tremendous
impression and change their lives.
On a macro level, our “small” actions can save the world.
This year, I hope to remember that our mission is not to explore asteroids or start global
I hope to remember the power of one good deed.
