On average the earth is hit once every two weeks by an asteroid measuring a couple meters or so across, in fact, the earth is being hit all the time by small meteorites, luckily most of these small objects burn up in the earth’s atmosphere appearing to us as shooting stars.

However, as it was shown by the Chelyabinsk asteroid in 2013, there are larger objects out there that are big enough to pose a serious threat to those in the vicinity of an impact but small enough to go unnoticed until they actually hit the earth.
Then there are the monster planetoids as much as a several hundred kilometres across that if they struck the earth would sterilise it of all life.
Luckily these massive objects are very few and far between and well away from us, the biggest risk comes from ones up to several kilometres across.
But now for the first time in the earth’s history, we humans have reached the stage where we are now able to do something to protect ourselves, which is just as well because next big asteroid could have our name on it.
Between 2000 and 2013 there were 25 asteroid impacts with blast forces ranging from 1 kiloton to 600 kilotons. 8 of those equal to or greater than the Hiroshima atom bomb which was equivalent to 16 kilotons of TNT. Of these 25 asteroids, only 1 was detected just 19 hours before it hit the earth.
It’s estimated that there some 500,000 asteroids in our solar system classified as Near Earth Objects on potential earth crossing orbits which if they struck the earth would have a blast equal to or greater than 10 megatons of TNT.
On October 31st, 2015 an asteroid about 600m across passed 486,000 km or about 302,000 miles from earth. That might seem like a long way from us but in astronomical terms it’s close. More worrying was that for such a large object, it was only discovered about 3 weeks before it was due to pass by.

Sorry but Paul does NOT sound like Michael Caine!
Similar inflection, I'll grant, but his timbre and tone are very different.

Should we save humanity?

I demand moar Doomsday videos!

Considering we're getting over populated i doubt the government would let us know about an asteroid that could wipe a few cities and NASA is government owned so at the end of the day it depends on interests

Vampirerockstar says:

THe US government has their thoughts and prayers ready

Vampirerockstar says:

Big brother jupiter cant protect us all the time

The Tunguska explosion reminds me of the all nightmare long music video

We'll send Giant Robot on a suicide mission to crash into any asteroid.

Kinetic energy is really killer. A US quarter (weighing 5.67 grams) moving at 0.9999 the speed of light has a relativistic kinetic energy of 2.31 petajoule or 0.55MT TNT. It's also not even theoretically possible to detect.

Apophis might hit 🌎 and make it really 🔥 and kill all life and we would die

raiden derp says:

7:30 has anyone ever purposed blowing it up many, many times? one nuke might just make things worse, what about 100 nukes? eventually it would be turned to dust? expensive, yes, but if our species is on the line…

John Rambo says:

Your videos are awesome.

Dan Don says:

That voice is the bomb… Brilliant work.

rgerber says:

if we blow up earth in time, they will never get us! mhahwaha!

MtnTow says:

I think we should harness it, swing it around the sun once if we need fresh surface and park it in LG2 for, mining.

Dylan Chester says:

the more of these videos i watch the more i understand the names of items in KSP and mods (like the sentinel satelite)

Michael Bishop says:

In the 3.5+ billion years that life has been on Earth, not once has something big enough to sterilize all life on Earth hit.

Darryl alexander says:

that is one of the most interesting,important and knowledgeable mini programmes on here.x

HughsReviews says:

If they detected something tomorrow, Elon Musk would have a falcon heavy ready to launch a nuke at it within a week. Guaranteed!
