verry small asteroid heading our way

but its on a collision course.
its traveling at 28 klm/sec
they are trying to decide if we should just let it hit and let those who survive figure out why.
or try to stop it.
and let those who try to stop it figure out why.

what is the density of it I wonder.
what is its mass I wonder.
could be any number of materials.
so we need to find a force to vector it.
we could aim a bomb at it and make more rocks.
or worst two smaller rocks.
we could just yell at it.
no bull.
if we yell at it loud enought and long enought
it might run away in another direction.
or at least it might have seconds thoughts about hitting us.
