Asteroid can mankind destroy like dinosaurs, but scientists are engaged in plan to the world to save
Science & Planet is A leading American research centre is engaged in the design of a rocket that our earth needs to protect against a potential and devastating impact of an asteroid. The Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) of the Johns Hopkins University about two years of a first test. It is the first major mission of the space agency NASA, which is not the purpose of the space to explore, but to us it was not possible to protect.

According to research, would the fireball be as powerful as 185 times the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima, and would have the air heated to a temperature of nearly 50,000 degrees. Was the meteor 3 hours later, turned, than he had by the rotation of the earth, the Russian capital city of Moscow completely from the card swipe.
