"One day, we are probably going to be faced with a killer asteroid heading our way, threatening to cause major damage to the planet. The odds just aren’t in our favor.

To prepare for such a day, the White House released its Near-Earth Object Preparedness Strategy on December 30, 2016. It details how to stop such a disaster ever occurring, and how to act if worst comes to worst, and we are hit by a large asteroid.

Such events are not unprecedented. Of course, the dinosaurs were wiped out by an asteroid 10 kilometers (6 miles) wide, but many smaller ones hit Earth every day. Most go unnoticed, but some – like the Chelyabinsk meteor over Russia in 2013 – can cause considerable damage.

There are several institutions set up to track these asteroids – such as NASA’s Planetary Defense Coordination Office (PDCO) – but most agree we are not doing enough. We know of thousands of near-Earth asteroids, but more than two-thirds remain undetected.

This new report is by a group that was set up in January 2016 by NASA called Detecting and Mitigating the Impact of Earth-bound Near-Earth objects (DAMIEN). The report recommends enhancing levels of detection asteroids and tracking them, in order to prevent an impact scenario in the future."

The USA have been trying that since Reagan & his Star Wars idea ;)

In the over all scheme of things at present with all the wars and terrorist attrocities going on, an asteroid is probably one of the last things we should be worrying about.

Or looking forward too. Nothing like a good fireworks display to take your mind off of things

Also the basis of the story within the most recently-aired episode of "Elementary" (within the UK), Season 5 Episode 4 ("Henny Penny the Sky Is Falling").


Additionally sounds like the movie "Batman in Space"...

What if she starts looking like one of her half-siblings; Mia, or Chelsea (or, even, Taj)? :)

Also, does Liv have her Dad's vocal talents?

There's been doomsday stories like this every year and since after 2013 I've somehow managed to avoid being affected by them, until this happens. I'm slightly anxious. Oh well, if it actually comes this time round, we die and I can't do much to stop that. lol

If it's a Whitehouse plan, it'll be very short and very predictable. Blame Putin!
