Since its 2012 discovery the Asteroid 2012 Tc4 has been out of sight until September 2017, however in July 27, 2017 it was seen again with an apparent magnitude of  26.8 telescope.  The Asteroid  2012 Tc4  will pass by at 5:42 UTC time or 12:42 am on Thursday. The 60 to 70 ft  wide Asteroid Tc4 may not travel alone says BPEarthwatch and " to be careful ..they travel in groups..almost a debris trails of comet". One of the largest impact is the 1908 Tunguska Event  a 50-metre wide asteroid crash into Siberia. Let us not forget the meteor that hit Chelyabinsk Russia Feb 15, 2013. It was reported of having a blast, equivalent to 300,000 tons of TNT, damaging infrastructure more than 3,000 buildings and injuring over 1,000 people. Asteroid 2012 tc4 is a little bigger than the Chelyabinsk Russian Meteor.

Ron Densing, head of european space operation centre Darmstat, Germany. Nasa says it will come 42,000 miles to 171,000 miles from Earth or 0.13 Lunar Distance or 0.00034 Astronomical Units

93,000,000 x 0.000334= 31,620 miles

Planetary Defense Systems

Kinetic Impactor

The Kinetic Impactor means hitting an asteroid with an object so the Asteroid can be slowed down or change its path.
Also according to the "Asteroid Initiative Idea Synthesis Asteroid Deflection Demonstrations by Dan Mazanek, Pat Troutman & Paul Abell ", The ISIS Mission found in the website (p7):

The ISIS Mission: An Impactor for Surface and Interior Science, Steven Chesley, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory – Impactor for Surface and Interior Science (ISIS) concept to provide a low-cost kinetic impact demonstration at Bennu with OSIRIS-REx as observer, and to address small body exploration Strategic Knowledge Gaps (SKGs). This mission concept could be implemented for a large NEA using ARV as an observer space

Gravitational Tractor

A gravitational Tractor method is to put a large object next to the Asteroid to pull it with gravity away from its path.

Books on Asteroids
While there are many books explaining why an asteroid defense system should not exist there are speculations that the asteroid defense system already are top secret existence. However for the sake of the non existance argument the following will be noted. Such as in the 2016 book "Earth in Human Hands: Shaping Our Planet's Future" by David Grinspoon it explains that it does not make sense to build a asteroid defense system that will last for a decade or two.

Asteroids, Comets, and Meteorites: Cosmic Invaders of the Earth By Jon Erickson 2014

"Incoming Asteroid!: What Could We Do About It?"by Duncan Lunan 2013 p 160-166 Duncan Lunan says it is more dangerous to build a system. He calls it asteroid deflection technology should not exist because it will land in the "wrong hands" in another century". The author argued to say that the risk outweighed the benefit. Or it is argued that building mechanism is like playing marbles. The United States will hit the Asteroid over Russia and Russia will hit it over the United states (p164.1.9-10) Read further in "The Deflection Dilemna" p166.
