NASA spots asteroid on crash course with Earth – with just hours to go


Passing the Buck

By deflecting all these asteroids, we're just creating a higher concentration of them for future generations. I'm already using up all the trees, burning all the fossil fuels, and digging up all the heavy metals that future children are going to need. Now I'm complicit in bombarding them with rocks that I should have taken myself.

Thanks, boffins.
