It's a simple question.

Why hasn't a killer asteroid or something smashed into Earth and wiped us all out?

Did Harry Potter wave his wand or something and say "Avada Kedavra".

It's a simple question. With the amount of rogue bodies whizzing through space in and around our solar system, why haven't we been smashed into smithereens yet?


BIG space small target not much thought required

Well, actually, we owe a large part to Jupiter and its gravitational pull, but still...

It's because of Bruce Willis, Steve Buscemi, Will Patton etc.... obviously.

That may only be partially true -- and partially not true.

Jupiter does help suck in and fling away the long period comets that are on a long inbound trajectory from the outer reaches of the solar system. So it does protect us from those.

However, newer research shows that when it comes to the stuff that already lives in orbits between Earth and near Jupiter, such as short-period comets and asteroid belt objects, the gravity of Jupiter is also likely to perturb the stable orbits of some of those objects enough to move them from their previously harmless orbits to become Earth-orbit-crossing objects.
