Talk about a tease. The headline for this article started off quite promisingly, with:
Killer 1,000ft wide asteroid wipes out New York
…only to be spoiled by the rest:
…as ‘planetary defence’ scientists fail to save Earth by deflecting it in simulation of terrifying Armageddon scenario
Well, shit. There for a moment I was envisioning a future without the New York Times, and let me tell you, it was a warm, wonderful place.
On those lines: couldn’t it just be a smaller asteroid, one that takes out only the 41st St block between 7th and 8th?
