Across the globe, scientists, engineers, and astronauts gear up for a cosmic battle to hunt asteroids and prevent them from hitting Earth. In the program, viewers meet the experts building new telescopes and space probes to detect the estimated one million asteroids near Earth. The presentation explores plans to knock an incoming asteroid off course with a kamikaze spacecraft, deflect asteroids with giant space lasers, and capture an asteroid in deep space and move it to the moon.
