Michael Bay Reveals Armageddon With Bruce Willis Was ‘Not Far Off’, According To Science

Don’t worry, the world isn’t coming to an end – at least, not yet. We may be having a pretty big space problem straight out of a movie in the future, though, as NASA just launched a spacecraft into space to disrupt an asteroid. If that sounds oddly familiar, it’s because Michael Bay basically predicted the same situation in his 1998 film Armageddon, starring ultimate badass Bruce Willis. Apparently, the sci-fi film was “not far off” from real life, as Armageddon basically becomes a true story, minus all the drilling. 

NASA launched its DART rocket yesterday with the intention of crashing into an asteroid, with the purpose of the crash not being to destroy the asteroid, but to knock it slightly off course. This is only a test to see if this type of plan would work if Earth were ever threatened by an asteroid heading in its direction. The asteroid targeted by DART is millions of miles away and poses no threat to Earth. Phew.
