Worried about asteroids? Bill Nye's got your back

Science Guy explains how we can stop asteroids without hiring Bruce Willis


The latest animated science video from the folks at AsapSCIENCE is a pretty standard "How do we stop an asteroid?" video, but with a twist - they've added Bill Nye, the Science Guy!

Nye gives us a brief explanation about the types of asteroids that usually burn up in the atmosphere vs. the ones that could be devastating to the planet, and then proceeds to offer up some ways to stop them from flattening us.

Laser bees, huh? OK, whatever you say, Science Guy. I'm with you all the way.
