NASA and FEMA Are Practicing What Would Happen If an Asteroid Hits the Earth

When it comes to extraterrestrial threats, you can never be too careful, and NASA and FEMA aren't taking any chances. The two agencies, together with some international groups, are holding a practice run of what would ensue in case an asteroid, comet or other near-Earth object (NEO) came hurtling toward the planet. This type of natural disaster is not very likely to happen, but would be catastrophic in the rare chance that it actually does, NASA said in June 2018.
