They basically come up with a plan to drill a massive hole in the asteroid and plant a bomb that will split the asteroid into two, helping it to safely pass the earth. After the plan, they approached Harry Stamper, the greatest deep-sea driller to make it happen along with a great team of weaponized drillers. The team was then given a 12-day astronaut training and developed “armadillos” for their fight. The team, after a briefing on day 13th , leave for the asteroid on space shuttles to carry out the plan.
In the after several misfortunes, when asteroid caught fire and destroyed the remote, Harry volunteered to stay behind to activate the bomb manually. The movie ends with Harry dying with A.J and Grace’s wedding scene with the pictures of heroes who died saving the earth.

50th Precinct comparing all the space junk you tracked in every orbit. I want you to check, re-check and then do it all over again. Number three: wild cards,
anything and everything. Now, Big Russ, I want you to get on the phone and wake up 11,000 people. Walt, get ’em going.”
“When the rogue comet went through the asteroid belt, it sent shrapnel right for us. For the next 11 days, the Earth’s in a shooting gallery. Even if the
asteroid itself hits the water, it’s still hitting land. It will slam into the ocean bedrock. Now if it’s a Pacific Ocean impact, which we think it will be,
it will create a tidal wave about three miles high, flash boil millions of gallons of sea water. It will hit the West Coast, washing away California and
ending up in Denver. Japan is gone, Australia is wiped out. Half of the Earth’s population will be incinerated by the heat blast, the rest will freeze to
death in a nuclear winter. Basically the worst parts of the Bible.”

the technology to prevent its own extinction. All of you praying with us need to know that everything that can be done to prevent this disaster is being
called into service.”

and imaginations, even the wars that we’ve fought have provided us the tools to wage this terrible battle. Through all the chaos that is our history, through
all of the wrongs and the discord, through all of the pain and suffering, through all of our times, there is one thing that has nourished our souls, and
elevated our species above its origins, and that is our courage.”
“The dreams of an entire planet are focused tonight on those fourteen brave souls traveling into the heavens. May we all, citizens the world over, see these
events through. Godspeed, and good luck to you.”

Chick: Forty two seconds.
Harry: I have been drilling holes in the earth for thirty years. And I have never, never missed a depth that I have aimed for. And by God, I am not gonna miss this one. I will make 800 feet.
