Caption

Prevention of an asteroid impact. A large asteroid is seen approaching the Earth. The only chance to avoid a disasterous collision is to fire nuclear missiles at the asteroid to change its course. Several nuclear explosions are seen along the bottom edge of the asteroid. Thee would be very little time to rig up such a device, as most nuclear missiles are incapable of escaping Earth orbit.
