NASA reports an asteroid twice as big as the Pyramids to pass the earth’s orbit on 6th September 2020
2020 keeps surprising us and NOT in good ways. NASA has reported 465824 (2010 FR), which could be up to 270 m wide, to pass by the earth’s orbit. It is being described as a NEO (Near-Earth Object). YIKES.
Welcome to Jumanji Level 8. After the spread of the Coronavirus, and everything else that has followed, this is perhaps not that big of a deal for us. At this point, all that’s left is the zombies.
After a space rock the size of a car zapped past us in August, scientists are tracking over 2000 asteroids and comets that could threaten our planet.
The difference between both? Asteroids are small, rocky bodies that orbit the sun. Comets on the other hand, are typically made of ice and gas.
Luckily. CNEOS has claimed the asteroid non-fatal and does not pose a threat to life on earth. We hope so. We really hope so.
Also, can 2020 chill for like 2 minutes? Haven’t we had enough? Please. Let. Us. Live!
