Asteroid to hit Earth?

If you think the idea of an asteroid hitting the Earth, as seen in the movie "Armageddon," is fiction, read this article. One difference is that it will be China and Europe saving the Earth. Another difference is there will be no oil drillers going into space to drill on the asteroid (I still liked the movie, though).

NASA has a program dedicated to Near Earth Objects, too.
