A review of U.S. government efforts to track and mitigate asteroids and meteors. Testimony from Dr. John Holdren, Gen. William Shelton and Gen. Charles F. Bolden.
In the wake of last month's meteor strike in Russia and a close asteroid flyby on the same day, members of Congress asked White House, Air Force and NASA officials what they're doing to combat the threat of near-Earth asteroids during a hearing on March 19th. By and large, the experts stressed that the two space rock events were a coincidence and that the chance of a catastrophic asteroid impact to Earth any time soon is remote. On Feb. 15, a surprise meteor exploded in the sky over Russia's Ural Mountains, just hours before the 150-foot-wide (40 meters) asteroid 2012 DA14 flew close by Earth in a pass that had been predicted beforehand by scientists.
