How To Deflect An Asteroid
Scientists explore potential ways to save the world by deflecting killer asteroids. Brilliant video from BBC science show 'Averting Armageddon'.
Asteroid 1950DA - also known as "Cosmic Enemy #1 - will make an approach close to Earth on March 16, 2880.
A preliminary analysis of Asteroid 1950DA shows two possible scenarios. One trajectory misses the Earth by tens
of millions of kilometers, while the other has an impact probability of 1 in 300.
The energy released by a collision with an object the size of 1950 DA would cause major effects on the climate and
biosphere which would be devastating to human civilization.
The discovery of the potential impact has heightened interest in asteroid deflection strategies.
