Caption

Illustration of asteroid defence spacecraft deflecting an asteroid that is on a collision course with Earth. One rocket has already impacted the asteroid (flash at centre) in an effort to nudge the asteroid away from an Earth-bound trajectory. It is thought that a large asteroid impact caused the mass loss of life some 65 million years ago that included the extinction of the dinosaurs.
