On June 20, NASA said a planet about 140 meters to 310 meters in diameter will pass over Earth next Wednesday, according tomedia reports. NASA says the asteroid, known as 441987 (2010 NY65), is about 140 meters to 310 meters in diameter and is about three times the size of London’s Big Ben. It can reach a speed of 12.89 km/s, 14 times faster than a bullet.
The planet will pass over Earth at 07:44 BST on June 24, when it will be 2.3 million miles (3.7 million kilometers) from Earth. Although it may sound very far away, it is already a very dangerous distance. Asteroids are considered dangerous if they are less than 4.6 million miles (7.4 million kilometers) closer to Earth, according to NASA standards.
NASA says there is still a chance of an asteroid hitting Earth in the future, and it will find about 30 new “neo-Earth objects” (NEO) a week, and more than 19,000 neo-Earth objects have been discovered so far. And the current list of “neo-Earth objects” is incomplete, meaning that unknown planets could collide with Earth at any time.
