NARIT: Asteroid 2006 QQ23 would not hit Planet Earth

We are now aware of some 20,000 such Near Earth Objects (NEOs) and are discovering new ones at a rate of roughly 30 per week.

A larger object, asteroid 2000 QW7 is expected to pass even closer to the earth - at about 3.5 million miles away - on September 14.

Scientists revealed that this week, an asteroid referred to as as a "metropolis killer" got here nearer to the Earth than the moon and so they had no concept about the identical.

NASA rates the approaching asteroid as "potentially hazardous".

Every year, about six space objects around the size of Asteroid 2006 QQ23 passes by the earth, but thankfully all pose a statistically insignificant risk to the life on the blue planet.

An expert at the National Astronomical Research Institute of Thailand made a decision 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.

Koppenhafer was advising and accompanying the Iraqi Security Forces on a planned operation, Central Command's statement said. Our most honest thoughts are with the family and teammates of Gunnery Sergeant Koppenhafer during this hard time.

To this day, NASA monitors the potential asteroid collision and continue to release official word to settle the fears of the people.

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

Then one of the scientists responded that we might use space ships to give a nudge to the asteroid. "This is a rock that's the size of a skyscraper".

Unlike the planet-killer asteroids, the destruction caused by an impact from a smaller one will be more localized. Anything like the 7.5 mile wide asteroid that hit Earth and took out the dinosaurs hasn't been spotted on any radar. As it heats, it emits radiation, which, over time, will push it off course a little, Wordon said.

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

It's just a matter of time before another asteroid is poised to hit the Earth, "so we need to be vigilant to detect and detract these objects", Johnson said. This crater strongly resembles the marine impact sites on Earth.
