I don't think this is a good idea, for one, no more meteorite hunting or

Russian scientists plan to upgrade their nuclear missiles so they can
shoot down meteorites threatening to smash into Earth
Russian scientists want to upgrade their nuclear missiles in order to
prevent meteorites threatening to hit earth by smashing them while they
are still in space.
While it may sound similar to the plot of sci-fi disaster films
Armageddon and Deep Impact, Russian scientists are planning to tweak
their intercontinental ballistic missiles, ICBMs, to target meteorites.
Russian news agency TASS reports the missiles would have the power to
destroy meteorites measuring from 20m and up to 50m in size.
