Massive Killer Asteroid Heading Towards Earth: Scientist Warns It Will Be The End Of The World
An unbelievable potential of ending life here on Earth. Scientists and experts warn us of a powerful billionlike nuke heading towards Earth. A warning that you might possibly see in Sci-fi movies. This powerful nuke is said to destroy and end life on Earth. Is this serious?
Nanjing, China: using one of the largest telescope detected an asteroid by an astronomer Zhao Haibin. As Haibin quoted in an interview with Daily Star, "technology has helped us to identify probable threats for space", "with the help of our images, astronomers across the world have a more specific and accurate trajectory of the asteroid." What is shocking here is that the size of the asteroid can lead to an extinction - a level that the entire Earth will be toasted.
2009ES as NASA named the asteroid is huge as 10 miles across. Admittedly, astronomers have not yet pinpointed the affected areas when it reaches Earth. The exact trajectory is still unknown and not yet determined. Images was captured by the 1.2-meter Schmidt space telescope however bases conclude 18.8 lunar distances.
With space and orbital threats, as astronomers counted 1,640 near-Earth asteroids that noone knows when it will hit Earth, launches NASA's super computer Scout. It allows us to counteract such potentially dangerous asteroids by detecting and calculating distances before possible impact on Earth's surface.
"Some near-Earth asteroids are potentially hazardous to Earth and their properties need to be better understood in order to inform impact mitigation strategies," NASA writes. Referring to near-Earth objects and their potential to impact our planet, Paul Chodas, manager of NASA's Center for Near-Earth Object (NEO) Studies at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in California, told Space.com, "In many cases, after a few more observations, we realize it's not high priority, because it's not going to come as close as suspected." - Sputniknews report
