Asteroid On The Way To Earth Closely Monitored by NASA. Something is going to hit the earth again. Earth gets hit by asteroids and small debris all the time, but most of the asteroids break up in the atmosphere, they create unnecessary panic in the public.
Asteroids are chunks of rocks that weren’t big enough to become a planet when the solar system formed. Smaller asteroids are called “meteoroids” and when they fall through the earth’s atmosphere they become “meteors”. If they make it to the surface, they are called “meteorites”. Asteroids impacts that are big enough to cause damage and cause problems are rear, but the stakes are very high.
Size of Asteroid
The coming asteroid size is capable of ending human civilization if it hits us. It’s being monitored closely by NASA.
Last month there was an Armageddon warning. The rock, called 2020 CH, measuring between 22 to 55 meters in diameter passed close to earth but the world didn’t end. Meanwhile, the earth will continue witnessing more such events this year. Second in the line is Asteroid 136795(1997BQ). It’s traveling at 42000 km/h and is 1km wide.
A 100-meter wide asteroid passed just 70000 kilometers from the earth in April 2019. An asteroid was expected to hit the earth on September 9, 2019. But as the date approached, the asteroid was nowhere to be found.
In July 2021 Space X Falcon 9 rocket will be launch, the first mission is to redirect a moon of an asteroid, Second is that change its rotation period by about 73 seconds, Third is objective is on the ground they’re going to spend some time looking at the rotational period and can figure out how much we changed the period.
The last time there was something that impacted earth was 50,000 years ago this is a major object that struck the earth fifty thousand years ago that created the big meteor crater that’s out at meteor crater Arizona.
Only Person Hit by Meteorite
In 1954, Ann Hodges was hit by a meteorite, it was small, and so her injuries were minor.
All of the bigger asteroids have been cataloged, like the dinosaur killers that are 10 kilometers or 1 kilometer.
In 2013, a 17-meter wide meteor exploded over Chelyabinsk, Russia before it ever reached the ground. In the resulting shock way released about 440 kilotons of energy that damaged structures and injured over 1500 people.
Asteroid On The Way To Earth Closely Monitored by NASA. On April 29th in the morning, there are reports that an asteroid measuring between 1.1 and 2.5 miles in diameter will come within 3.9 miles of earth. Is this a doomsday scenario or nothing to worry about? This is a big question. In 2016, the planetary Defense Coordinating Office was set up in NASA to demonstrate that we can do something about an asteroid impact if something is coming in. Now NASA says “we’re not just trying to figure out how to deal with what’s coming.
No, we’re going to go out there and we’re going to try to stop it. On the other hand, Conspiracy theorists are convinced that its judgment day.
