Wednesday, 21st July 2021

A huge asteroid the size of a stadium is rushing towards the earth at a very high speed. The asteroid named "2008Go20" will pass the Earth on July 24.

This asteroid travels at a speed of more than 8 kilometers per second, which is approximately 28,800 kilometers per hour. The speed is so fast that any path through it will suffer extreme disasters. Near-Earth Objects (NEOs) are 20 meters wide and will approach at a distance of 28,70,847,607 kilometers, eight times the distance between the Earth and the Moon.

Although this asteroid will pass the Earth safely, its low-Earth orbit is classified as Apollo, which contains the most dangerous asteroid. NASA is continuously monitoring the object.

In early June 2021, KT1, an asteroid the size of the Eiffel Tower, approached Earth. 2021KT1 is classified as "potentially dangerous", approaching Earth at close range within a distance of 4.5 million kilometers. Any object at a distance of 4.6 million kilometers is considered a potentially dangerous object.



Asteroids are rock fragments left over from the formation of the solar system about 4.6 billion years ago. According to NASA's Joint Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), which tracks the motion of asteroids, when the distance between an asteroid and our planet is less than 1.3 times the distance between the earth and the sun (??the distance between the earth and the sun), it is classified For near-Earth objects. There are approximately 93 million people on the earth and the sun).

The orbits of asteroids are sometimes affected by planetary gravity, causing their trajectories to change.

NASA has tracked more than 26,000 near-Earth asteroids, of which more than 1,000 are considered potentially dangerous. The mechanism tracks the asteroid's movement around the sun to determine its position and calculates the best elliptical path for the object's available observations.

At the same time, researchers from the National Space Science Center of China found in simulations that the simultaneous collision of 23 Long March 5 rockets can cause a large asteroid to deviate from its original path, and its distance is 1.4 times the radius of the earth. Their calculations are based on an asteroid named Bennu, which orbits the sun and is as high as the Empire State Building in New York.
