Russia Plans to Save Earth from Asteroid

Russia's federal space agency Roscosmos is considering a special project to prevent a large asteroid called Apophis from colliding with the earth in 2036. Anatoly Perminov the head of the Russian agency said a scientist told him "the asteroid will surely collide with the earth," but other sources like NASA put the odds of a collision at "four-in-a-million". If they go ahead with the project, Russia says it could invite experts from Europe, the U.S. and China to participate.
