As global warming accelerates the melting, the lakes are expanding, as is their number and threat, monitored in some areas with automated sensors and manual early warning systems by army and police personnel with communication gear. The life on this planet likely won't cease until billions of years from now. And yet, here we are, sitting at desks and in coffee shops and walking down the street like it isn't some kind of extraordinary miracle.

Once the asteroid gets closer, the better scientists can track it, he added. The planet is not afraid of us. But this has come at a high cost.

What is in danger is not the planet, not life on earth, not even human life, but some ideas that are dear to us. As global warming accelerates the melting, the lakes are expanding, as is their number and threat, monitored in some areas with automated sensors and manual early warning systems by army and police personnel with communication gear.

The theory is that an asteroid that was expected to come within 2, miles of Earth will eventually miss it by hundreds of thousands of miles just from one bump, Wordon said.

According to the European Space Agency ESAimpacts from large asteroids are incredibly rare and it is the small to medium-sized rocks that are the real danger. Of course there are plenty of other worlds and ways to define ourselves.
