NASA is preparing for a possible "day of judgment" by practicing what will happen if an asteroid is diverted to Earth.
The space agency together with other international organizations will play for five days to react those groups of possible apocalypse.
The huge asteroid scenario that was moving towards our planet at a speed of 31,000 km / h was supposed to be as realistic as possible and was devised by the division of the NASA Laser Entry Laboratory tasked with studying objects near Earth (NEOs).
The exercise is to see how organizations respond quickly and effectively.
Lindley Johnson, director of NASA's planetary defense, said: "These exercises really helped us in the planetary defense community to understand what our colleagues should know on the disaster management side.
"This exercise will help us develop more effective communication with each other and with our governments."
The Space Agency has been scanning the sky for more than 20 years, searching for NEOs.
NEOs are considered any objects that orbit around the sun and come within 30 miles of Earth's orbit.
While an asteroid strike may look like a Hollywood movie, the threat is real.
In February 2013, the meteor flashed through the sky above Chelyabinsk in the southern mountainous mountains and was the largest registered meteor strike from the events in Tunguscus in 1908.
More than 1,600 people were injured by a shock wave caused by a blast that was 20 times the size of the atomic bomb that fell on Hiroshima.

The "mass" exercise begins with the premise that on March 26, astronomers "discovered" an asteroid that could be dangerous for the Earth.
In the simulation, NASA claims that the asteroid is one of the 100 chances of affecting the Earth.
The exercise will see how the various organizations will deal with the situation and which will be the best step of the action.
