"By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail", that quote by Benjamin Franklin certainly rings true with this current biological crisis but one day a large asteroid could give us all a very bad day.
Thankfully we are starting to take the threat seriously and soon we will be testing to see if hitting a 150m chunk of rock weighing millions of tons can be knocked off a collision course with Earth with a 500kg spacecraft. This is AIDA, the Asteroid Impact and Deflection Assessment mission that will test out the theories on the double asteroid Didymos.
