NASA launches an asteroid strike simulation this week, but what would happen if a devastating asteroid was coming our way today? RT asks an expert about the tools available, and how long it will be until we’re fully prepared.... NASA warns that “given the current incompleteness of the NEO [Near Earth Object] catalogue, an unpredicted impact could occur at any time.”

Looking recently for extreme weather events, I noticed that many showed meteorites coming into our atmosphere from around the planet. Searching for why this is so--and not thinking it had anything to do with abrupt climate change--I came upon this short video that shows the answer quite well, imo click here
