Giant Asteroid

Posted on: February 10, 2010

A group of U.S. astronomers have recently made a startling discovery.  They have spotted a giant asteroid that is, as far as they can tell now, plummeting toward Earth.  An asteroid such as the size of this one (about 20 million times the Hiroshima atomic bomb) would completely

The Earth's End

obliterate the Earth and everything on it.  Astronomers however are not confident that this asteroid will in fact hit the Earth for many reasons.  the first reason is that the asteroid is simply too far away to know where the asteroid will be in over 4 years.  Also, the odds of an asteroid hitting the Earth is 1 in 909,000.  So if I’m not be overly confident I believe that we are in pretty safe hands.  But, if something like that were going to happen, i just hope everyone has a happy and fun 4 years.
