Space Arms Race

So... a company called Elysium Space is offering funerals in which a loved one's ashes will be shot into space.

We as a species are consistently concerned about space shooting asteroids at us, particularly given that one asteroid in particular that caused almost everything to go extinct.

We, by which I mean Japan, are going to shoot an asteroid with a cannon.

The sun has just shot at us with plasma.

What do we shoot at the sun, and do we want to risk something else firing back?
