NASA: No asteroid to strike the Earth any time in the next several hundred years...
New stories every other week seem to be claiming that the end is near. Sorry dooms day preppers, it looks like it is more likely for the zombie apocalypse to happen than a life-ending meteor, in the next several hundred years.
Although the earth and the moon that protects the earth are under fire from meteors fairly consistently, these rocks are almost always disintegrated upon entry. The friction from the speed these space rocks are contacting the earth’s atmosphere results in the meteor completely burning up before it can do any actual harm.
We’re Safe Says NASA
NASA has been looking into it, and it turns out that all of the conspiracy theorists and religious nut jobs that claim that something in the universe is sending something from outer space to destroy the human race are wrong.
"In fact, as best as we can tell, no large object is likely to strike the Earth any time in the next several hundred years, "It's too late for the dinosaurs, but today astronomers are conducting ever-increasing searches to identify all of the larger objects which pose an impact danger to Earth, "NASA notes.
With the technology our scientists have today, they are capable of detecting if any of this life threatening events were bound to happen any time soon. Soon science will have the ability to prevent these large meteors from harming the Earth even if they manage to make it to Earths solar system.
The fact of the matter is that with the constant surveillance of space, NASA would know if something was coming that could cause catastrophic hurricanes, earthquakes, and other devastating changes. In the end, humans do not have anything to worry about when it comes to space attacks, and maybe should be looking at the harm that is happening inside of the planet, rather than what is happening outside of the planet.
