I’m old enough to (sort of) remember the old Asteroids computer game. Altough life on Earth is not quite as dogged by pieces of comets and interstellar debris hunting you around as was the case for the hero of the game, it turns out we have more to fear from asteroids than previously thought – or, as the BBC so charmingly put it, we ‘underappreciate’ the risk.
