New Delhi Date. Wednesday, July 21, 2021
Disasters are being felt everywhere due to hurricanes, hurricanes, floods and earthquakes. Amidst all this, now a stadium-sized asteroid is moving very fast towards the Earth and it may hit the Earth on July 24. Scientists of the US space agency NASA have called it extremely dangerous.
According to the report, this giant asteroid is approaching the Earth at a speed of 8 km per second i.e. about 28,800 thousand km per hour. Its speed towards the Earth is so high that if a planet or object collides with an asteroid, it is destroyed. The asteroid Near Earth Object (NEO) is 20 meters wide and will be visible from a distance of 28,70,847,607 km, which is 8 times the total distance between Earth and the Moon.
The CEO will pass through an orbit called Apollo on the night of July 24. However, it is unlikely to hit Earth. Nevertheless, scientists have placed it in the category of potentially dangerous asteroids. Because of this, NASA scientists are constantly monitoring it. Earlier, asteroid 2021KT1 had passed through Earth’s orbit, which was similar in size to the Eiffel Tower.
22 asteroids can become dangerous for earth in 100 years
Asteroids are usually found in the orbit of Jupiter. Some asteroids have been found orbiting other planets as well as revolving around the Sun.
Scientists know about one million asteroids so far. 22 of them could be dangerous to Earth in the next 100 years. Astronaut Dr. Shashi Bhushan Pandey of Nainital-based Institute of Research and Observational Sciences said that about 4.5 billion years ago, when our solar system was developing, some clouds of gas and smoke that could not evolve into planets, Later became asteroids.
