Good news from the astronomical world! As long as it does not perish, will the earth live forever?
As we all know, the earth not only survived for billions of years, but also had suitable air, water, soil, etc., which gave birth to life. The solar system has Eight planets, and the earth is the only planet carrying life and civilization wisdom.
So, don’t any asteroids hit the earth? Of course there is! The extinction of dinosaurs can basically be inferred as a result of a planet hitting the earth, but life on the earth has been endless for billions of years. Who is protecting the earth in the dark?
As we all know, there are countless asteroids in the universe. On March 24, 1993, American astronomers used the Palomar Observatory in California. The telescope discovered a comet. This comet was broken into 21 fragments from July 16 to 22, 1994 after being discovered for more than one year and two months. These 21 asteroids are moving in the direction of the earth. Flying, the diameter of each asteroid has reached more than 500 meters, according to the flight path of this comet, it will undoubtedly hit the earth directly. Once an asteroid hit the earth and caused dinosaurs to become extinct, will the power of 21 asteroids directly destroy the earth? It’s creepy to think about.
However, the result is not what we expected. The comet changed orbit after flying to a certain distance, because the comet encountered a strong gravitational force when passing around Jupiter. So the comet hit Jupiter at a speed of 60 kilometers per second.
Foreign astronomers have observed bumps on the surface of Jupiter, with numerous scars, which are the result of being hit by planets . In addition, Jupiter, the”big brother”, is an indispensable guide for the solar system, guiding various planets to rotate in their orbits in an orderly manner, which not only protects the earth, protects humans, but also maintains the entire solar system. balance.
So, astronomers and scientists boldly say that Jupiter is guarding the earth. If Jupiter has always existed, the earth may be safe all the time, and all living things on the earth will be unharmed.
