15 meters? Thats tiny in asteroid terms.

 

Are you sure it's not 15 miles or kilometres across?

Not much to be scared about if it's passing by 17000 miles away. It's the ones that hit us you need to worry about.

Exactly.

 

Absolute pointless story, nothing more than scare mongering of the "what if" type.
