Is it true that the asteroid headed for earth could wipe out our planet? That’s one crucial question that will be on everyone’s minds as the date approaches near—this one here is for those fear-mongers among us, who believe that the doomsday is far closer than ever thought before.
An investigation done by express.co.UK discloses that there would be six asteroids that will pass within the cosmic fraction of the earth in seven days. The days that are predictably reported are September 22, 23, 24, 27, and 28. Scientists have said that the ones to pass on 23, 24, 27, and 28 are believed to be 57, 39, and 31 m in length, respectively. However, their main cause of worry are the asteroids that are going to pass on the 22nd and the 24th, which are believed to be 190m and 280 m long, and another asteroid of 270 m two days later.
The Distance Between the Asteroid Headed for Earth and the Earth
NASA also disclosed that the 280m long asteroid that is to fly past on the 22nd is believed to fly over at a safe 14.7 miles from the planet, but the one that is 270m long, scheduled on the 24th, is at a much closer range namely about 5.1 miles.
Is This The End?
Probably not. But then, if it is true and if the asteroid is truly headed for earth, we wouldn’t know it now. The good news is that NASA has confirmed that all the prophecies about the end of the world by these asteroids are unusual and ensures that there is no need to worry. As per their research, no astronomical object is likely to collide with the earth for the next hundred years.
