In 2023, nearly 700 feet wide asteroid & # 39; can & # 39; have an impact on the Earth, according to NASA cited by members of the British news website, Express.
Date of the potential impact nearest where the stone space, said, Asteroid 2018 LF16, can & # 39; impact on the planet, is 8 & # 39; August 2023, according to the device information.
However, the asteroid can & # 39; crosses again with & # 39; the Earth orbit on 3 & # 39; August, 2024; and 1 & # 39; August, 2025. B & # 39; all, there are 62 dates in which the space rock can & # 39; hitting the Earth.
As reported by Express, the risk of this happening is quite low cataclysm. According to NASA estimates, there are between 30 million possibility that LF16; crash on Earth and there is a chance & # 39; failure & # 39; 99.9999967%.
At the risk scale & # 39; impact & # 39; Torino, this asteroid is "zero", which means that the likelihood of & # 39; impact is non-existent or as close as possible & # 39; is not there. But the size and number of & # 39; & # 39 dates; potential impact do incredible incredibly object to monitor.
The most & # 39; the asteroids disintegrate after contact with & # 39; the Earth's atmosphere
F & # 39; this time, the asteroid crossing the space in & # 39; more than 33 844 miles per hour. The NASA experts estimate that the asteroid has a diameter & # 39; about 698.8 feet (213 m).
According to the news portal, the dimensions of the asteroid are almost twice the height of & # 39; Big Ben f & # 39; London and twice the height of the Statue of Liberty in New York.
NASA said the force & # 39; impact & # 39; so big item you & # 39; is devastating because the explosion & # 39; 50 Megaton Bombun Tsar of the most powerful nuclear device ever explained on the planet's surface.
Fortunately, according to the European Space Agency (ESA), asteroids of & # 39; this size tend to hit the Earth at least once every thousand years. It also requires a much larger asteroid (more than six miles wide & # 39;) to see event & # 39; sunset similar to that & # 39; asteroid that allegedly killed the dinosaurs 65 million years ago.
ESA representative explained that expresses some asteroids are very large and can cause massive destruction if the Earth was hit, but its estimated population in our Solar System is pretty small. In fact, it is believed that more than 90 percent of these have been discovered and none of m & # 39; has some risk & # 39; impact.
"Some are very small (diameter less than 10 m) and only a small fraction of the estimated population was discovered, but any impact harmless," said a member of the ESA quoted by Mirror. "The main challenge comes from population & # 39; & # 39 items, sized, whose diameters range from tens to hundreds & # 39; m."
Many of these asteroids exist in the vacuum of space and impact damage & # 39; one of these space rocks can cause significant damage in cities or in & # 39; densely populated areas.
