Early this week, an asteroid flew right by the Earth, but didn’t hit us. How common is it for objects to fly this close to Earth? Turns out, it’s a lot more common than you’d think.

Visit http://science.nasa.gov/ for breaking science news. On Feb. 15th an asteroid about half the size of a football field will fly past Earth closer than many man-made satellites. Since regular sky surveys began in the 1990s, astronomers have never seen an object so big come so close to our planet.

Hank gives us the skinny on three plans NASA scientists have come up with to save Earth from an asteroid impact. Hopefully we'll never have to use any of them.
