By the coming Monday, many big asteroids are going to pass near our Earth. The US space agency NASA has said that 4 large asteroids will come very dangerously close to the Earth. The size of one of these asteroids is 119 meters in diameter. Such asteroids whose size is small, they pass close to the Earth without any danger, but many asteroids cause concern due to their size and scientists monitor them until they are far away from the Earth. don’t go away
Reports According to the report, the asteroid ‘2005 RX3’ coming close to Earth around September 18 is about the size of a 40-storey building in size. Its diameter is about 390 feet. When it is closest to Earth, then the distance between it and our planet will be only 47 lakh kilometers. This asteroid is traveling in space at a high speed of 62,000 kilometers per hour. The next time this asteroid will come close to Earth in the year 2036.
Due to the similar position of asteroids, they are kept in the category of potentially dangerous. That is, these rocks may collide with the Earth in the future. Keep in mind that millions of years ago, the extinction of dinosaurs from our earth was due to the collision of an asteroid.
On the other hand, today i.e. on September 16, an asteroid is coming closer to the Earth. This asteroid named ‘2022 QD1’ is 250 feet long. When it will be closest to the Earth, then the distance between the two will be 74 lakh kilometers. The remaining asteroids, named 2022 QB37 and 2022 QJ50, will come closer to our planet on Sunday and Monday. Their size is 55 feet and 110 feet respectively. Although it is expected that none of these asteroids will affect our planet.
Asteroids are also called minor planets. Just as all the planets in our solar system revolve around the Sun, so also the asteroids revolve around the Sun. Asteroids are the rocky remnants left over from the early formation of our solar system about 4.6 billion years ago. Scientists have so far detected 11 lakh 13 thousand 527 asteroids.
