“Most estimates of the mortality risk posed by asteroid impacts put it at about the same risk as flying in a commercial airliner. However, you have to remember that this is like the entire human race riding the plane — it is one of the few risks that really could wipe us all out.” -Nathan Myhrvold
Yes, it’s easy to say that even though the risks of getting killed by an asteroid strike are low, the consequences of a major asteroid strike are simply too high for us to not address this threat.
But is that really true? This isn’t pontificating; this is science! And in the scientific realm, if we have a question like this, we can quantify just what the risks to a human being actually are.
Come and learn the truth about asteroids, and the threat they pose to us.
