Asteroids have always been a staple in the apocalypse movie genre. “Armageddon” is the first film that pops to mind, naturally, as its focus was on a group of oil rig employees sent to destroy an asteroid by dynamite. Of course, scientific inaccuracies are bound to occur regarding the process of destroying an asteroid about to damage Earth. That is why it is Hollywood. But in the real world NASA has announced it is accepting proposals regarding an asteroid capture mission. If there is one commonality between NASA and Hollywood, then it would be that both dislike asteroids wreaking havoc on Earth.
