CTV goes on to claim that “models indicate there are around 25,000 of these sized objects whose orbits come in close proximity to Earth, but so far Bridenstine said NASA has only detected 8,000 of them—or less than one third.”

The threat of a meteor hitting the Earth is a terrifying thought, but human civilization cannot afford to put it out of mind.
