      The closest near miss was an asteroid about 30 feet wide which   passed within 106,000 miles of Earth on January 17, 1991.

Scientists have had a hard time getting   Congress to fund an early-warning system. A 1991 NASA study,   requested by Congress, called for an international Spaceguard   Survey system of ground-based telescopes surveillance cameras...
