After a collision with a comet, a nearly 8km wide piece of the asteroid "Orpheus" is heading towards Earth.

I've seen that movie and it was okay. It was one of the many sci-fi disaster film ever made before "Deep Impact" and "Armeggedon". Sean Connery was a great actor from his post-Bond years, Natale Wood was great in her last film. One of the scenes in that film was a meteor that hit New York City causing minor impact with some footage of explosions and building collapses just like the opening credits of "Herbie Rides Again". Toward the end of the film, a batch of missles including the US and the USSR had hit the meteor and blew the whole thing up causing a tremendous explosion in space. And finally, the earth is free once again. Once of the best endings I've ever seen in that film. If you enjoyed watching that movie, I recommend "Deep Impact" and "Armeggedon".
