After extensive testing they found that indeed it was a space rock.

That asteroid is a conglomerate. If that becomes a threat to earth destroying it will be difficult.

It would probably be better to gently nudge Bennu away from a course headed for Earth. Anything destructive would be likely to scatter all the loose bits of this 'rubble pile' asteroid unpredictably, perhaps sending many Earthward. The odds of Bennu ever assuming a collision course with Earth are still very low.
