Initially, asteroid will be destroyed with an assistance of direct nuclear explosions; then, it goes nearby nuclear explosions, and ultimately laser sublimation. Firstly, due to a possibility of direct nuclear explosions, we “could blow an asteroid out of the sky like so much interplanetary skeet” (Keim, 2009... )....

Iridium is more common in meteorites than in rocks found in the earths crust. According to this theory, a large asteroid crashed into the earth about the time the dinosaurs disappeared.

This killed many plants, and without food, the dinosaurs died too. High...
