Thanks for scaring us, NASA!!
If an asteroid is speeding toward Earth one day, BRUCE WILLIS and the team from "Armageddon" are NOT going to be able to save us.
Charles Bolden is the head of NASA, and this week he spoke at a Congressional hearing about protecting the Earth from asteroids . . . and how much it's going to cost to protect us even more.
Here are the three things he said that should put the fear of God in ya . . .
#1.) An asteroid with a diameter of about six-tenths of a mile, quote, "could plausibly end civilization."
#2.) 95% of the asteroids flying nearest to the Earth ARE that big.
#3.) And finally, if there's an asteroid headed toward the U.S. and NASA doesn't detect it until it's about three weeks away? Quote, "Pray."
