Just when you wanted to relax on a Friday night.. this news is revealed: 2km-wide asteroid approaching Earth, NASA warns »
An asteroid big enough to kill millions of people is on its way to Earth but is expected to brush past, missing by a mere 25 million kilometers – a narrow distance by space standards, NASA said.
If all goes well death and destruction will stay safely away from earth..
But boy is that close..
A shave that close is even more startling when you realize how recent we found out about this..
I heard an expert say a few weeks ago on Art Bell's show that giant asteroids would most likely be known if they were close to earth.
I guess not all of them, eh?
