Hollywood relies on Bruce Willis to save the world in Armageddon, but who are the real-life heroes seeking to save our civilisation from the next major asteroid impact? 
Disaster Playground investigates future outer space catastrophes and the procedures in place to manage, assess, and minimalize the risks. The film follows scientists leading the monitoring and deflection of hazardous Near Earth Objects and the real-life procedures in place in the event of an asteroid collision with the earth. Follow the chain of command that runs from NASA and the SETI Institute to the White House and United Nations, meeting the people who are responsible from protecting us from a potentially devastating asteroid impact.
