B612 Space Group President Danika Remy states that the risk of asteroids to Earth is very small in the short term but inevitable in the long run. In a speech to NBC, she said she was 100 percent ahead of the collision. She said, "We are 100% sure we will be hit, but we are not 100% sure when."
B612, created in 2002, is an organization that is leading global efforts to protect Earth from potential impact of asteroids.
One of the foundations of the original objectives was to intercede and see that the mission of deflecting asteroids was accomplished.
Ms. Remy states that for the first time in human history, there is technology to help solve it.
Planetary defense experts are now working on ways to deflect potentially dangerous terrestrial asteroids.

However, scientists claim that more needs to be done to make Mr find time to take effective action.
An Eiffel Tower-sized asteroid invaded Earth in early August, traveling at speeds in excess of 10,000 mph.

While this is not a close shave for most, it is in the danger zone in astronomical terms.

NASA estimates that at least 95 percent of asteroids per kilometer (3280 feet) or greater are cataloged, with none is not a threat to Earth.
The more realistic danger comes from the QQ23 space rock of 2006, which could equalize an entire city, killing millions and causing widespread destruction in the event of a direct hit.
Ms Remy said: the kind of devastation we would look at is regional rather than planetary, but it will still have a global impact – on transport, networks, climate, weather. "
Experts believe the key to avoiding a scenario is to go beyond the planet killers and find all the asteroids that could hit the earth.

Ms Remy added: "The real problem is that we have to to have an inventory of all asteroids.
"The important thing is that you can find all these asteroids and define their orbits exactly and calculate them in the future.
"So you know if it will travel 19 lunar distances like the 2006 QQ23 or if it will move closer – or if it poses a threat of impact. "
NASA is now embarking on a mission to test the asteroid deflection system.
Dual Asteroid Redirection Testing Mission (DART) is slated to launch in 2021.
Technology will blow up a kinetic impact on an asteroid set to jump across the Earth in 2 022 in order to change its course.
NASA Earth Observation Program Manager Kelly Fast said to NBC: "The impact will blow the material to give it extra impetus."
added that an asteroid heading for Earth should only deviate from a small amount in order not to collide with the planet.

Another way of deflecting an asteroid is to use the gravity of a spacecraft to change the path of space rocks.
Ms Remy said: "The idea is to use gravity between a small spaceship and an asteroid to gently push it into another orbit.
The third option under study is to detonate a nuclear explosion near the asteroid to direct it to a different course.
These approaches will only work if there is sufficient advance warning that an asteroid is pointing to the ground.
Astrophysicist and science fiction author David Brin believes that advanced technology will protect the planet from a big asteroid impact like the one that killed dinosaurs.
He told NBC: "As for the asteroid strikes, we have to remember that the dinosaurs are not here because they did not have a space program."
