Sunday science: Asteroid on a collision course with the earth! (Video)

• The Political Commentator
Not really but this chart gives the potentially hazardous asteroids known of today (PHA) that the earth may one day have to encounter! When we look up into the sky we see some of the planets some of the time, the moon, the sun and if the sky is clear and pollution-free maybe a meteor shower or a comet. What we don't see with the naked eye are the potentially hazardous asteroids that move around space, one or more of which we may someday find is on a collision course with the earth. What could the "impact" of an asteroid (a meteor once it enters earth's atmosphere) crash-landing on earth potentially be? Anything from nothing as it burns up entering the atmosphere to what has been speculated to be an earth changing event called K-T.
