It’s the end of the year and one particular tabloid newspaper is again warning us that it could soon be the end of the world — yes, asteroid 2019 AE3 is in our vicinity and the apocalypse is coming.
In keeping with this tabloid drama, below is a list of all the film and TV dramas ever made that feature Earth-threatening asteroids and comets, for you to see what’s unlikely to take place on 2 January 2020.
NASA calculates that the 13 metre-wide asteroid 2019 AE3 will miss us by a distance of nearly two million kilometres, which is more than five times the Earth-Moon distance.

Happy New Year!
Now, on with the list…
