CBS This Morning: Asteroids Attacking Earth
Warning: you are not being punked. This is not a dream or a science fiction movie anymore. Asteroids are headed for Earth and we might be sitting ducks if Congress does not invest in technology to deflect them.
On March 19 2013 Congress is holding a hearing on asteroids. Sparked by the catastrophic, bus-sized asteroid that hit central Russia last month, many now fear more are on their way. Former Congressman Bart Gordon said that we are tracking 10,000 asteroids near Earth.
