Asteroid Apocalypse? "Nation-busting" asteroid could hit earth in 2036

Physicist Michio Kaku says an asteroid powerful enough to destroy nations is on a collision course with earth.

A much smaller one exploded just above Russia last week - its power was equal to 20 Hiroshima bombs.

Kaku says the nation-busting asteroid headed our way won't arrive until 2036, but it could make a direct hit with 1000 times more power - that's 20,000 Hiroshima bombs.

Pistorius granted bail in murder case: Magistrate calls out problems with both sides of the case

South Africa's Chief Magistrate granted the Olympic "Blade Runner" Oscar Pistorius bail - telling the courtroom that Pistorius, who is accused of murdering his girlfriend is not a flight risk and would not commit more violence if released from jail.

Pistorius met the requirements for bail which was set at about 112,000 U.S. dollars. Pistorius is now believed to be staying at his uncle's home.

Here's what he also had to do:

  • Surrender his passports and guns
  • Must report to police twice a week
  • Refrain from consuming alcohol

The Pistorius family members shook hands after the decision  and proclaimed Oscar's innocence.

"We know Oscar's version of what happened we know that version is the truth and that will prevail," said Arnold Pistorius, uncle of Oscar Pistorius.
