Currently, the federal government funds a NASA project that searches for Near Earth asteroids
and plots their courses that they travel around the Sun. To date over three thousand Near Earth
asteroids have been found in various sizes. Large asteriods such as the one that blew up
over Russia are very rare. The good news is because these objects travel so slow over vast
distances, it a major threat was discovered, there might be enought time to find a solution to
cause the asteriod to miss a collusion with Earth or time to destroy it.
