Neil deGrasse Tyson Says Asteroid Could Hit U.S. Day Before Election
Neil deGrasse Tyson Earthlings warn, maybe an asteroid is heading towards our planet before election day, but it’s probably not going to kill us … but maybe something else will.
The famous astrophysicist posted a photo of the giant rock rushing towards Earth, with the caption: “Asteroid 2018VP1, a refrigerator-sized space rock, is rushing towards us at over 25,000 mph . “
He goes on to say that he might have contact with Earth at a disturbing time … “It could make a buzz on Earth on November 2, the day before the presidential election. But it’s not big enough for it. cause damage. So if the world ends in 2020, it won’t be the Universe’s fault. “
Neil, who hosts Fox’s new show, “Cosmos: Possible Worlds,” hasn’t said what else could end the world as we know it, but we have some ideas.
As for the asteroid … NASA has confirmed that it on a trajectory to eventually strike the United States on November 2. It’s 6.5 feet across and there’s only a 1% chance it’ll hit somewhere in the country, but still … it’s 2020.
The space agency says there are 3 possible impact points, but they weren’t specific. Awesome.
Our sincere thanks to
