Hollywood relies on Bruce Willis to save the world in Armageddon, but who are the real-life heroes seeking to save our civilization from the next major asteroid impact? Disaster Playground investigates future outer space catastrophes and the procedures to manage and assess the risks.
This documentary follows the scientists planning the monitoring and deflection of hazardous near-Earth objects, and the real-life procedures in place in the event of an asteroid collision with the planet. Tracing the chain of command that runs from the SETI Institute and NASA to the White House and United Nations, Disaster Playground focuses on the people who are responsible from protecting Earth from a potentially devastating asteroid impact.
