Yesterday, NASA moved an asteroid that was 7 million miles from earth by shooting a spacecraft at it. It worked!
The idea was to test out whether we might be able to alter the trajectory of a big object hurtling towards Earth. Which... maybe we can, which is good.
I'll be honest: I never ever worried about a giant object hitting Earth until I heard about this test. But now I can't get it out of my head!
