Five asteroids will fly over the earth this week, NASA warns that it is faster than the moon
NASA’s asteroid hunter has identified five close-range overflights this week, but what’s more worrying is that they have also discovered a space rock that is about to pass between the earth and the moon .
issued at NASA’s Near-Earth Object Research Center (CNEOS) In the shocking news of, the asteroid hunter discovered a”potentially dangerous” asteroid that will pass through the earth in September at a distance of only 71,805 kilometers, just five-fifths of the distance between us and humans One moon (384,399 kilometers).
The height of the asteroid 2011 ES4 is 49 meters, and it is expected to buzz to the earth at a speed of 29,375kph at 10:49 am EDT (3:49 pm BST) on September 1st. Fortunately, considering that its diameter is somewhat small, even if it deviates from the course and hits us, it will not end the world as we know it, although it will definitely impress.
For background, on February 15, 2013 The diameter of the Chelyabinsk meteor that exploded above Russia was only 18 meters, but its size still caused significant local damage. Its explosive power is equivalent to 33 times the energy released by the atomic bomb dropped from Hiroshima. About 1,491 people were injured in this accident, most of which was caused by the brightness and debris of the explosion. These fragments were caused by fragments such as broken glass or skin burns, and the brightness of the explosion was 30 times stronger than the sun. After the incident, at least 112 people were hospitalized, 2 of whom were seriously ill.
At the same time, on Monday, the size of the two must be at least 30 Mi’s asteroid, 2020 KJ7 (30m, about half of the Leaning Tower of Pisa) and 2009 OS5 (42m, or Statue of Liberty Half) will pass us by 4.5 million kilometers and 6.75 million kilometers respectively.
On Tuesday, the asteroid 2020 MQ2 (42m) equivalent to the diameter of five London buses will pass us at a speed of 6.4 million kilometers, followed by the asteroid on Thursday, it will A safe distance flew towards us.
The attack on Friday will be the 2020 MX (48m), the size of the Arc de Triomphe, which will fly over at a speed of 5.6 million kilometers.
