NASA Plans for Doomsday Scenario of Asteroid with 72 Percent Chance of Hitting Earth in 14 Years

New York Post

What if a never-before-seen asteroid barreling in our direction was likely to strike Earth?

That’s the hypothetical scenario NASA astronomers tested with a recent simulation in which officials attempted to plan for an asteroid that had a 72% chance of hitting Earth in just 14 years.

After the theoretical timeline was posed to a group of nearly 100 government representatives in April, NASA found that the best plan they made to counter the horrifying doomsday scenario had several “high-level gaps,” according to their presentation.
