Russian scientists have been determining how to use nuclear weapons to protect the Earth from asteroids.
There’s no denying that a sufficiently large space rock could prove catastrophic were it to ever hit the Earth – a fact that has prompted a renewed effort in recent years both to catalog any potential threats and to develop new ways of stopping an apocalyptic asteroid before it can hit us.
While some researchers have been coming up with ways to slowly nudge an asteroid off course, scientists in Siberia have been pursuing a decidely less conservative approach to the problem.
