Nasa: Asteroid and Comet impact hazards

What is it for?

The Torino Scale is a "Richter Scale" for categorizing the Earth impact hazard associated with newly discovered asteroids and comets. It is intended to serve as a communication tool for astronomers and the public to assess the seriousness of predictions of close encounters by asteroids and comets during the 21st century. < top >

It can get pretty depressing if you take this all seriously. It is all kind of interesting more than anything else.
