Asteroids have been being described as a threat to the Earth for a long time. In fact, scientists say that if an asteroid collides with the Earth, then there can be a big devastation. In such a situation, it is said that once the asteroid collided with the earth and after this collision the dinosaurs were eliminated from the earth. At the same time, after this, scientists expressed the possibility of collision of asteroids with Earth many times, although this has never been proved to be true. Now in the midst of all this, once again there is a danger of asteroid colliding with the earth. Yes, recently the US space agency NASA has said that this asteroid will pass near the earth on May 16 at 2.48 am.
Let us tell you that NASA has issued a warning regarding this. In fact, the space agency says that if an asteroid collides with the Earth, then there can be a huge devastation. With this, according to the calculations of space scientists, this asteroid will pass through a distance of about 2.5 million miles from the Earth. Yes, NASA has told that the width of this asteroid is 1608 feet. This asteroid is bigger than the Eiffel Tower. With this, the name of this asteroid is 388945 (2008 TZ3). Earlier in May 2020, it passed near the Earth. Now after this it will come near the earth in the years 2024 and 2163. Let us tell you that the scientists of NASA are constantly monitoring this.
In fact, scientists say that this asteroid is far away from Earth, but scientists are considering it as a potential threat. With this, scientists have told that it will go from a distance of 2.5 million miles from the earth. But this distance is very small in terms of space. Apart from this, space scientists believe that if an asteroid comes within about 46 lakh miles, then there can be a threat to the Earth. In such a situation, he has warned that the asteroid is coming now. If it collides with the earth, then destruction can happen.
