CALIFORNIA – In the near future NASA will fly a spacecraft that will intercept asteroid that threatens the earth. This method turned out to be very effective in delaying the destruction of the earth from an asteroid attack.
Physicist from Johns Hopkins University in Maryland, Patrick King says this method is like creating a line of defense from outside attacks. Once the asteroid is on a collision course with Earth, this ‘weapon’ will blow the space rock to smithereens.
“This latest calculation shows that such defenses are very effective in protecting the earth from asteroid strikes when the time of impact is less than one year,” he was quoted as saying. Science Alert.
