200m wide meteor has "96% chance of hitting Earth in 2027". Found this while searching for "comet 2025" (I had a dream of an impact during that year).
Could cause massive damage....

I am not able to link the NASA pdf, search for "asteroid 2017 PDC".

Imagine if they "break it up" like in the movie Armageddon and the "smaller pieces" still fell to earth. They could just target areas they want to destroy or "reset" and be totally blameless.

A quote from the above article.

"But an estimated two-thirds of asteroids 460 feet in size or bigger — large enough to wreak considerable havoc — remain undiscovered"

.....anybody else get a whiff of flawed logic in this statement?
