  • Asteroid 1990 MU could come close to Earth

However, he goes on to say that a big asteroid will eventually hit the Earth and we've now got no defenses for it.

The good news, if you trust Musk, is that though he's anxious about asteroids hitting the Earth and destroying all life on the planet, Musk says he "wouldn't worry about this particular one".

The billionaire made the chilling comment in response to a story shared by his friend about NASA's preparation for an incoming monster space rock named after the Egyptian god of chaos, Apophis. At one point it will travel more than the width of the full Moon within a minute and it will get as bright as stars.

Nevertheless it will not be a satellite tv for pc or an airplane - it is going to be a 1,100-foot-wide, near-Earth asteroid referred to as "Apophis" that may doubtlessly cruise harmlessly by Earth.

"We'll observe the asteroid with both optical and radar telescopes. With radar observations, we might be able to see surface details that are only a few meters in size", she added.

It's going to then cross the Indian Ocean, and by the afternoon within the japanese United States, it would have crossed the equator, nonetheless transferring west, above Africa.

"Current calculations show that Apophis still has a small chance of impacting Earth, less than 1 in 100,000 many decades from now, but future measurements of its position can be expected to rule out any possible impacts", mentioned NASA lately.

Astrophysicist Brian May believes that ESA and NASA's DART spacecraft will have a tough time deflecting a twin asteroid which is classified as potentially hazardous. "It is possible that there will be some surface changes, like small avalanches", Davide Farnocchia, an astronomer at JPL, said in the blog post.
