An asteroid races toward Earth. It’s big, it’s fast, and it’s about to do a lot of damage. But we’re not just going to sit around and wait for the end of days. We’re going to fight back. What would happen if we nuked an asteroid? Would it save humanity? Or make things worse? How does a nuclear blast in space compare to a blast on Earth? And would our nukes even be strong enough to destroy it?
