IT IS 2036. A large asteroid is on a collision course with Earth. Unless it is stopped, it will crash into the Pacific Ocean, creating a devastating tsunami. What should we do?
We could blast the asteroid with a nuclear bomb, but that would risk shattering it into smaller pieces that could still threaten Earth. Or maybe we should try to force it off course by slamming into it with a heavy object or there may be a third option: gently nudging it with high power lasers

My hypothetical question is if we were to do the same thing to earth, where would our earth go? and what kind of orbit will it have? and would life still exist on earth?
