    I liked that movie, but, yes, scientifically it was crazy. A nuke that less than a 1/4 mile deep into an asteroid that’s 600 miles wide would only blow a big hole in it. Fires can’t burn and dust can’t blow with no atmosphere. Nor can space shuttles take off. Another thing was, they had only a few hours to drill the hole and drop the nuke in, but they wasted SOOO much time arguing and fighting with each other.
