It is being said for a long time that there will be destruction on earth due to asteroid. Asteroids are asteroids that orbit the Earth from space. It is said that so far an asteroid hit the Earth only once. Because of this dinosaurs were eliminated from the world. Since then, many asteroids have passed close to Earth several times (Asteroid To Cross Earth Orbit) but fortunately no other asteroid has collided yet. Now on January 18, the largest asteroid ever will pass very close to the Earth. This asteroid has been named 7482 (1994 PC1).
Four days from today i.e. on January 18, the first asteroid of the year will pass very close to the Earth. It is being told that its width is about 3 thousand five hundred fifty-one feet. According to experts, this asteroid will pass about 1.2 million miles from Earth. According to the numbers, even though it seems very high to you, but if the danger from the earth is assessed, then according to NASA, it is a threat to the earth.
NASA’s Dart mission has been launched
The NASA Center for Near Earth Object Studies wrote on its website that this asteroid is a potentially hazardous asteroid. That is, it can threaten the earth. NASA experts were studying this asteroid for a long time. Now on Tuesday, January 18, it will pass very close to the Earth. If the Earth’s gravity pulls the asteroid, then it can collide with the Earth. And if such a big asteroid collides, then destruction will come.
NASA’s Dart mission can rid Earth of asteroids
NASA is trying to find a way to prevent asteroids from hitting the Earth in the future. With this, NASA has launched the Dart mission. Let us tell you that last week, another asteroid had passed near the Earth. But the asteroid that is about to pass now is the biggest asteroid ever.
