1932 : What would Buddha do?

Say the Buddha is sitting on the Moon and meditating. From where he is sitting he can see an asteroid racing towards the earth, and which shall most definitely spin us into total annihilation.

If he jumps and tries to stop the asteroid, his physical body is still puny to register even a microcosmic impact onto the missile….which means his effort shall be a waste, he shall go kaput with the rest of the earth.

On the other hand, if he just sits and watches in his Zazen pose, he would die another day, but would know that he did not try and save his fellow men?

What would the Compassionate one in his infinite wisdom do?
