An asteroid 10 times faster than a rifle bullet will pass near Earth tomorrow

No worries, all is safe!

According to a statement from NASA, we don’t need to worry because the probability of the QC7 hitting the Earth is like a snowball’s survival chances in hell. The asteroid is 4.6 million kilometers away from the Earth.

It is also underlined that even if the QC7 hit the Earth, it would not make a big impact. The only thing the QC7 could do would be to cause a huge and loud explosion in the entry of the atmosphere.

Potentially the most dangerous one: Bennu

Tall as Empire State Building and with a similar surface to a plastic ball, our galaxy has an asteroid that could be very dangerous if it hits the Earth, “Bennu”.

According to the scientists, it will be possible to better predict exactly where Bennu, one of the closest meteorites to Earth, will be over the next 200 years. However, if Bennu hits Earth, the results will be inevitable.

Let’s learn more about DART

NASA and other space agencies have rolled up their sleeves to change the direction of asteroids, especially huge ones, which are likely to hit the Earth in the future and can cause great damage. That’s why they decided to come to the DART project realize.
