“Potentially Hazardous” Asteroid Passing Earth Next Month

An asteroid twice the size of the world’s tallest building will fly past Earth next month. NASA has called the mile-wide space rock “potentially hazardous.”

The asteroid is named 231937 (2001 FO32). It is unlikely that it will hit the Earth as it will be 1.2 million miles away from us. That is five times further away than the Moon.

However, NASA calls any object that comes within 93 million miles of our planet a “Near Earth Object.”

According to NASA, the asteroid will be closest to Earth at 16:03 GMT on March 21. They have said the rock is “potentially hazardous” because it “might hit the planet at some point in the future of our solar system.”

Scientists first discovered the asteroid in 2001 using telescopes in New Mexico, part of the Lincoln Near-Earth Asteroid Research (LINEAR) program.

The asteroid has been under observation ever since.

Space agencies around the world are investigating possible solutions to deflect future space rocks from hitting Earth. NASA is looking at using gravity from a flying spacecraft to direct an asteroid to a new trajectory.

    Looks like a perfect place for the Democrats to start their own country, seeing that they don’t like ours and are Hell-bent on going Socialist.

    Hit the asteroid with a nuke when it is just past earth’s orbit. Any pieces of the asterois would go futher away from earth and not fall into earths atmosphere.

    Oh well, you have to go sometime….at least if it hits we’ll really have something to complain about. This will cancel the cancel culture, ha.

    This month for next month we will be recruiting all and I mean all white supremacists, third world, Trump Loyalist Republicans to be transmitted to the Potentially Hazardous Astroid. So, they can be happy in their own world and don’t worry about what our Country in America home of the brave is all about!!!!

      Let me know how that works out.
      Evil usually implodes upon itself
      When least expected.
      And, yes.
      I am a faithful Trump Loyalist
      Fighting for Truth.
      Standing on the Promises of God.
      Don’t worry, Ricky.
      Your passport to the asteroid
      Has already been signed.
      Don’t let the door hit you in the backside
      As the wall of freedom
      Slams shut behind you.
      Have a nice day 🙂
