The U.S. government's Los Alamos National Laboratory, scientists conducted a computer simulation. In the simulation, they launch a 1 trillion-ton bomb, bombardment of a flying giant asteroid of the Earth, with a powerful explosive power to destroy the asteroid, and thus save the planet.
Los Alamos National Laboratory is located in New Mexico, part of the U.S. Department of Energy. In this laboratory, the scientists used a super computer simulation of a nuclear bomb bombardment of asteroids, in order to understand the effectiveness of this approach. The simulated asteroid is 1650 feet long (about 500 meters), to use nuclear bombs to reach a trillion-ton is about 50 times that of the United States during World War II atomic bombing of Nagasaki, Japan.
