NARIT: Asteroid 2006 QQ23 would not hit Planet Earth

12 August 2019

According to NASA's JPL Centre for near-Earth object studies, there are now about 900 near-Earth objects measuring more than one kilometre, which is much larger than Asteroid 2006 QQ3. Since the asteroid is about the size of a large boulder, still it became visible only a few days back. NASA is now on developing the new tech called Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART), in hopes to redirect away from the asteroids when it potentially befalls on Earth.

Scientists revealed that this week, an asteroid called as a "city killer" came closer to the Earth than the moon and they had no idea about the same. Every year, around half a dozen celestial objects of the size of Asteroid 2006 QQ23 pass by Earth.

An expert at the National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand chose to speak up to reduce the panic surrounding the Asteroid 2006 QQ23, which is double the height of Baiyoke II Tower in Bangkok, would have hit Planet Earth on Saturday.

Asteroids do not pose any danger to the Earth unless it is on track to hit it directly, Johnson said.

They've additionally admitted that they'd no concept {that a} large rock was headed to our Earth because it got here from the path of the solar.

Due to the closeness of the asteroid's intersection with Earth's orbit, it was classified by CNEOS as potentially hazardous.

Even Neil deGrasse Tyson, the American scientist who has made his career explaining physics to the layman, also believes that eventually, the end of the world is probably going to be due a big asteroid hit.

Then one of many scientists responded that we'd use area ships to offer a nudge to the asteroid.

In either scenario the asteroid would change the climate for many years.

In accordance with the Astronomers, this asteroid causes no fast menace. The method involves the asteroid's gravity attracting the spacecraft, situated about a mile or so away, which would hypothetically move it over time.

"Someday the earth will be impacted again", he said.
