Asteroid projected to narrowly miss Earth and Moon next week

This should be a scary reminder to all of us about how vulnerable we are on planet earth. If the KT event can wipe out the dinosaurs, we really do need to come up with an action plan as a planet on how to deal with a situation such as this. We are lucky this giant quarter mile wide asteroid will miss us next week. But based on the fact that over 7 billion people live on the planet now, the potential catastrophe of any such collision is unfathomable.
