Killer Asteroids Bound To Reach Earth On Halloween? Fact Or Fiction?
A Chinese astronomer had previously warned that a massive killer asteroid is bound to target our planet Earth with a devastating force similar to that of 3 billion nuclear bombs. According to several reports, the US space agency has already confirmed that they have discovered more or less 30 new "near earth objects" a week ago. It was found that experts are currently keeping a close watch as these objects cosmically brush past us.
As Nature World News reveals it, the asteroid was reported to have been discovered using China's largest telescope by Zhao Haibin, an astronomer with the Purple Mountain Observatory in Nanjing, China. Haibin claims that it is because of the help they get from the images that astronomers around the world are now able to accurately estimate the moving trajectory of the asteroid.
Furthermore, reports have it that the so-called killer asteroid can potentially lead to the total extinction of the human race which can leave the earth entirely toasted.
According to Sunday Express, three of the discovered space rocks are believed to be as humongous, between 660 meters and 900 meters in length. Experts claim that is big enough to wipe out the entire life forms in as much as a continent if a direct collision happens. Meanwhile, the other three are said to be 230 to 410 meters long likely seen to be disastrous for a whole country upon a direct hit.
Five of which are known to be 18 meters to 110 meters which experts claim as big enough to seriously create impact a city with the same size of London. On the other hand, it was allegedly reported that seven of Halloween asteroids were discovered only discovered earlier this year.
Thus, it seemingly looks like we have been unaware of their presence over thousands of years. At the present time, a NASA spokesperson has already clarified and reassured the public that these "near earth objects" will safely pass the earth.
