In this Teaching Astronomy and Space video, from the Institute of Physics (IOP), Teachers TV and the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), astronomer Jay Tate reveals the risks and dangers of an asteroid collision with the Earth.
Jay explains how our understanding of orbits allows us to track asteroids and looks into what could be done if an asteroid or comet was discovered to be on a collision course with Earth.
