30 foot asteroid explodes like 3 Hiroshimas
Luckily for Indonesia last October 8th, it was over ten miles in the sky. But in the video it looks a lot closer! Meanwhile one of many articles reveals: "NASA calculated that to spot the asteroids as required by law would mean spending about $800 million between now and 2020, either with a new ground-based telescope or a space observation system, Johnson said. If NASA got only $300 million, it could find most asteroids bigger than 1,000 feet across, he said."
