what are the politicalogical implications of capturing Asteroid Apophis in 2029?

since it will fly past earth closer than our own satellites in 5 years time
all it would take is one (or more) fully loaded spacex starship(s) to hit it in the right spot to nudge it into an orbit where it will no longer be on a collision course with earth in 2036, but we could even capture it:
making it easy to study, so we'd be better prepared for bigger space rocks in future
we can start building tech to mine it
we could turn it into an orbital manufacturing plant where materials can be grown in zero g with no contaminants or defects
we could hollow it out and use it as a space station or refueling station that's immune from most radiation thanks to the rocky exterior
did I miss anything?

      they should probably hit it 45-60 degrees from the front
      if they hit it front on, it's likely to shatter into a billion pieces, if they hit it from the side, they might knock the ball over the fence and we'll lose apophis forever, if we hit it from the rear, it'll go faster whereever it's headed and make things harder to calculate
      if we hit it at about 45-60 degrees from the front, it should be enough to slow it down a bit and minimise breakage, making it more manageable, and giving it a slower and more predictable orbit
      successive starship strikes can correct the orbit with glancing blows when we have a better estimate of how heavy the thing is and how much mass we have to send up there to affect it
      eventually we'll want to put rockets on it, so we can stop it tumbling out of control... or we might want to keep it for artifical gravity if we turn it into a space station

      maybe we should get a few probes to land on apophis as it does its flyby, let it drill into the crust with nukes
      then have them detonate 6 years later when it's far away from earth, or push it close enough to get sucked into jupiter

            Nearly all of that shit is loose gravel, 99.9%

            solid chunks only occur from being melted down within a bigger body and could emerge once that gets blasted out, but the shape of Apophis is typical of gravel. A mass that is only uneven because of spin, having the mass slightly splitting in two

      Just detonate nukes at a certain distance from it, repeatedly on the same side. The light from the explosion will superheat the top layer of material and propel it away from the meteor, which in turn means that the same amount of force will push the meteor in the opposite direction.

      It's the same principle as Project Orion intended to use.
