Over the past year alone, a number of asteroids have come pretty close – relatively speaking – to slamming into Earth and wiping us all out, including one scientists were calling “The Death Comet.”
Well, scientists at NASA are doing something about this and have started working on anti-asteroid technology.
The NASA scientists are teaming up with the European Space Agency for what they’re calling the “Double Asteroid Redirect Test.” They are actually going to try to knock asteroids out of orbit. You know … to save the Earth from total destruction.
Wish them luck? ( Thrillist )
