NASA discovers that a killer asteroid is headed for earth. It is similar to the one that wiped out the dinosaurs. It needs to be stopped before it causes massive destruction.

Eventually they do get deeper but it gets very dangerous, the need to evacuate and take off. They start evacuating but at the end Harry Stamper (Bruce Willis) closes the door and decides to stay behind and continue on with the drilling.
