Asteroid passes 28k miles from Earth today.

Worried about CO2? Well, here is something to ponder, today an asteroid the size of a bus passes within 28,000 miles of Earth. According to NASA it will be close but no cigar. According to the Daly Mail……

An asteroid the size of a double-decker bus is set to skim past Earth today – but the good news, according to Nasa, is that it has no chance of colliding with the planet.

The space rock, labelled 2010 TD54, will reach its nearest point to Earth – approximately 28,000 miles away – around midday, although it is unclear what its exact course will be.

However scientists have said that despite its close proximity to the planet it will not enter the Earth’s atmosphere and, if it did, it would be most likely to burn up before reaching the ground.

 

So, perhaps global warming isn’t so urgent warmers. Perhaps we’d be better off spending those trillions on a method to destroy asteroids before they destroy us.
