Today 170 meters of an asteroid will pass near the Earth at a speed of 48 thousand kilometers per hour

The US space agency NASA has warned that a large asteroid (asteroid) passes near the Earth on Friday. This asteroid named ‘2020 ND’ is about 170 meters (about 557 feet) long and will pass through .034 astronomical units (50 lakh 86 thousand 328 kilometers) from Earth. NASA said that they place the asteroid that passes so close on a potentially hazardous list. The asteroid has a speed of 48 thousand kilometers per hour.

NASA said that an asteroid passing through 0.05 astronomical units or less is at risk of approaching the Earth. However, it is unnecessary that it will affect the Earth.


Every year 30 asteroids hit the earth


According to The Planetary Society, there are about 1 billion asteroids of three feet, but they do not pose a threat to the Earth. Asteroids larger than 90 feet pose a significant risk of damage to the Earth. Every year around 30 small asteroids hit the earth, but do not cause major damage to the earth.


Asteroid ‘2020 LD’ was passed near the Earth


Earlier on June 5, an asteroid passed near a distance of 1 lakh 90 thousand miles from the earth and no one heard of it. The asteroid ‘2020 LD’ passed between the Earth and the Moon. Its size was 400 feet. Scientists had no news about it until June 7. Scientists had reported that although this asteroid was not much larger, it was larger than the Chelyabinsk satellite that wreaked havoc in Siberia in 2013.

The next asteroid is Bennu. Its size is 1610 feet. It will pass close to the Earth between 2175 and 2199. NASA says that it will destroy these asteroids before coming close to the Earth through the Kinetic Impactor. In this, spacecraft will be sent in the asteroid's path, which will destroy the asteroid or change its direction. NASA will use this technology for the first time in 2026.
