NASA scientist answers: When was the last time an asteroid hit Earth?

Some 26,115 asteroids have skimmed past Earth since 1990, according to NASA’s Center for Near Earth Object Studies.

Out of those, 888 had a diameter of more than a kilometer, making them two and a half times taller than New York’s Empire State Building.

But when was the last time an asteroid actually struck the Earth?
