No. I think we can do it. What about a sort of loose-knit network of 
units in space that can weave a shield together, or be a dispendable 
shield themselves? They would be told to assemble in a certain sector 
of the sky, a good distance away from the planet, and attempt to 
provide enough thrust to sway the path of the object. I am all for the 
nuclear suggestions, but if that never goes down ...
