Play: The Day the Sky Exploded

Plot:

A space mission goes awry when the experimental rocket malfunctions, forcing the astronaut to eject in an escape capsule and sending the rocket into deep space, where it explodes. The explosion causes a group of asteroids to veer from orbit around the sun, setting them on a collision course with Earth. With the impending doom approaching the planet, the nations of the world desperately attempt to come up with a plan to destroy the rogue planetoids.
