As reported by the Daily Star, Monday (12/8/2019) scientist from Cardiff University, Iain McDonald, revealed that his party had recognized these events throughout history and thought about the after effects of an asteroid that would hit Earth.
“There are always rocks flying in space. Inevitably one of them will hit us and it will have a very dramatic effect,” said Iain.
But fortunately,NASAhave not found an asteroid that will hit Earth. The US space agency estimates that at least 95 percent of asteroids 1 km (3,280 ft) or larger will not destroy Earth.
However, a few space rocks could obliterate entire cities and wreak widespread devastation in one head-on collision, according to NASA.
Previously an asteroid larger than the Empire State Building had also passed Earth at a speed of 10,400 mph on August 10, 2019.
Often rocks fall to earth, making NASA accelerate the manufacture of the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) aircraft.
DART is designed to destroy asteroids with a spacecraft located 17.7 million kilometers from Earth.
