Caption

Asteroid deflection method, illustration. Large asteroids can cause global devastation and mass extinctions if they impact the Earth. Here, paint is being applied to an asteroid to alter its rotation rate (arrows) and trajectory due to a phenomenon known as the Yarkovsky effect. This is due to the differing heating effects on light and dark astronomical bodies. For this illustration without arrows, see image C047/5256.
