1 asteroid

Russia is considering sending a spacecraft to deflect a large asteroid and prevent a possible collision with Earth, according to a radio interview by the head of the country’s space agency. Anatoly Perminov said the space agency will hold a meeting soon to assess a mission to Apophis, and said NASA, ESA, the Chinese space agency and others would be invited to join the project. Apophis is a 270-meter (885-foot) asteroid that was spotted in 2004. It is projected to come within 29,450 kilometers (18,300 miles) of Earth in 2029, and currently has an estimated 1-in-250,000 chance of hitting Earth in 2036.

  • NASA and the other space agencies should get together and inject nukes in all corners of that asteroid and boom have a nice day or find a way sustaining the asteroid in orbit and blowing it up direction traveling to earth. If this going to happen, NASA and other spaces agencies have start working now before all humanity will be extinct like the dinosaurs back in the day. okay thanks Daniel M.
