The end of the world: the scientists told, when the Earth will meet with a large asteroid


Конец света грядет: ученые рассказали, когда Земля встретится с крупным астероидом The probability that the Earth will not be able to recover from this collision.

As reported by the American astronomer Judith Rice, representing the University of Texas, October 12 with the Earth may encounter an asteroid, the fall of which has significant implications.

Rice argues that moving an asteroid is a bigger threat than the famous meteorite that fell in Chelyabinsk region in February 2013. The diameter of the Earth approaching space object is about 40 meters. Recall that the size of the Chelyabinsk meteorite was about 19.8 meters, but in the dense layers of the atmosphere it began to break down. While the damage from this fall is estimated at 500 thousand rubles.

The exact size of the “new death for the Earth” is not exactly determined, if it turns out that it is not too large, even in case of contact with earth’s atmosphere, with no danger to the inhabitants of the planet he represents. However, if the asteroid is huge and on the Ground he will fall in the village – it is fraught with destructive consequences.
