It is being said by a team of researchers from the University of Leicester, central England that though Bruce Willis has raised little hopes to save Earth from an asteroid. The scene had minuscule scientific fact, while everything else was merely a fiction.
As per the findings, the movie has shown Willis as a deep-core driller who is sent by NASA with an aim to stop a rogue rock colliding with Earth. However, it is shown that he simply landed on the Texas-sized asteroid and fits a nuclear device.
Following the same, the device explodes and cut apart the projectile in two parts further shave past on any side of the planet. But, the researchers say that the nuke would actually act as no more than a small cheap firecracker. Also, the time taken in the film would actually have been too late to protect Earth as the planet could have already ruined by the asteroid.
In reality, the asteroid nearly 1000km in diameter could be destroyed with a billion times stronger bomb than `Big Ivan', the biggest bomb, detonated in 1961 at a test site. The team concludes, "Our current level of technology is simply nowhere near sufficient to protect Earth from such an asteroid by this specific means of asteroid defense".
