Last quote by Bill Bottke
There was a time where we didn't have a program to look for objects, and it was done privately. You had guys like [astronomer Eugene] Shoemaker driving out every month to Palomar Observatory to look for them. Now we have $50 million annually to look for them. Now we're getting serious science missions to look at these.feedback

The probability that any large asteroid is going to hit is in the near future is pretty low. So I tend to focus on the more uplifting parts of asteroids.feedback
