In this third installment of Snapshots, Emily Lakdawalla reviews the threat posed by meteors, from relatively small impactors to massive planet killers. She also explores three critical steps to take in defending Earth, and how we may someday deflect an asteroid that is headed our way.

    I work on Edwards AFB and I got to watch them film part of Armageddon. I got to see Bruce Willis and Billy Bob Thorton. A few people I wokred with were NASA techs in the background. I also stood out on the flightline and watched them film a shuttle evacuation scene. Then I went to see the stupid movie and realize what a huge waste of time it all was. 🙁
