Asteroid Set For Near Miss

Asteroid Set For Near Miss

NASA say that the 100 metre wide asteroid could skim Earth by as much as 3 miles :shock:
However they also say that it could be as far as 9 million miles.
There is a small chance that it could hit as well.

The asteroid will pass on 8th of March 2016 but its the return journey that may pose a problem in 2017.

Hold on a minute :headscratch:
Their figures are not very comforting are they :thumbdown:

Basically we are just sitting ducks at the moment.
I am innocent, are you?

Its quite a big asteroid and if it hits Earth it will be like a massive atom bomb exploding.

it makes you wonder.
They have just found another planet in our solar system.
I have lost faith in these people now.
I thought we understood all about near Earth objects and their movements.
"It might hit", "it might not" is not good information :thumbdown:

If it hits North Korea I don't think anyone would be bothered.

Lets hope it doesn't hit because something that big would do some damage to say the least.
