Secret Science Club blasts into the stratosphere with a special live screening of Asteroid: Doomsday or Payday? from NOVA.
Last February a meteor exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia, setting off a shock wave 30 times more powerful than an atomic bomb. And that was just a hiccup. More than 10,000 asteroids and comets are known to pass just a cosmic whisper from Earth. How are astrophysicists working to track, detect---and even deflect---space rocks that could threaten the planet? And why are some scientists and entrepreneurs looking at the same orbiting objects and seeing (literally) golden opportunities?
