Asteroid nearly collides with Earth in close call fly-by


The asteroid is relatively small at 10 to 20 feet. If it were in an impact trajectory, it would have turned into a fireball – a meteor that has a visual magnitude greater than that of Venus, burning as it entered the atmosphere and breaking into fragments of rock. ...

NASA draws up plans to land astronaut on doomsday asteroid


But, with a smallish asteroid called Apophis having already been identified as a possible threat to Earth in 2036, NASA is taking the exercise very seriously. ... Mirrors, lights and even paint could change the way an asteroid or similar object could absorb enough light and heat to shift its direction over 20 years or so. "...

NASA only has a 10% chance of detecting deadly asteroids before they strike Earth


NASA's near-Earth object (NEO) tracking program has only, thus far, been able to identify 10 percent of the medium-sized asteroids that might pose a threat to human life and civilization - meaning that if such an object were to head our way, it more than likely would go undetected. ... Authorities believe that the meteor had broken off of the asteroid 2014 RC (nicknamed "Pitbull"), which NASA had detected only the week before. "...
