NASA updated Asteroid Apophis’s analysis which has shown us that there is a huge possibility of this asteroid hitting the earth in the coming centuries.
Experts have been able to calculate the speed and scale of collusion that would happen when Apophis hits the Earth by debris. This collusion will be roughly 1,200 million megatons of TNT energy and it would be enough to create a three-mile leading up to a 5km crater on Earth’s surface.
A collision like this can wipe off an entire city, killing millions of people in one go, luckily this is quite unlikely to happen. Astronomers along with NASA specialists have calculated an exact speed and rate at which Apophis can hit or affect the earth.
We might see an impact of asteroid Apophis by the year 2068 which is quite far away, while Acceleration can prevent this collision from happening which is going to be the case. So, there is no reason to worry for anyone at all.
Asteroid Apophis is, however, racing close to earth in this century which made astronomers and NASA specialists alert. Apophis is going to come close to Earth in 2029, 2036, and 2068 according to their calculation, however, the people working on calculation and accumulation of data are sure that 2029 and 2036 will not be the years when we will get to see Apophis.
Many previous calculations had been made on asteroid Apophis which have not come true so there is no reason to panic as everything is going to be alright. As much as the astronomers have been spending their time calculating Apophis’s direction and the possible future path it looks like 2068 is not going to be a rush as it’s unlikely that Apophis will see a collision with Earth. So, keep reading with us to get more updates.
