The National Aeronautics and Space Administration has asked amateur astronomers to help them identify the smaller asteroids that are capable of wiping out a city or worse when they impact with Earth.

NASA has reportedly coined the initiative ‘The Asteroid Grand Challenge’, which focuses on asteroids that are just 30 to 40 meters in size, and not the bigger, planet-busting asteroids most of which have already been found, Fox News reported.
