 The research organisation uses its telescopes and observatories like NEOWISE to track and study asteroids. (Pixabay)

It also uses a variety of ground based telescopes like Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA).  (Pixabay)

The Atacama Large Millimeter/submillimeter Array (ALMA) is  located in the Antofagasta Region of Atacama Desert in Chile. (Pixabay)

 NASA keeps tracking asteroid movements on a constant basis-each asteroid that nears Earth is tracked separately. (Pixabay)

It is even believed that the collision of Earth with a huge asteroid is the reason behind the extinction of the dinosaurs. (Pixabay)

 The asteroids, which are dubbed as near Earth objects, can sometimes be dangerous for the planet depending upon how close they get and their size. (Pixabay)
