Scientists say there are over 1500 asteroids which could one day collide with earth, many with the power to wipe out life as we know it. We follow astronaut Pascal Lee and his team as they train for a mission to near-earth asteroids in the harshest, most dangerous environments on earth. If this space cowboy can’t lasso an asteroid, how else can science save us from a doomsday rock?
