News! NASA has announced that an asteroid named Bennu will hit Earth in the 22nd century. All data were taken from the Osiris-Rex mission, a spacecraft that has already spent 2 years in space and has experience. This asteroid is not very likely to hit Earth, but it has enough to scare us, 0.06%, for us they are not big, but for an asteroid they are. So that means a chance at 1 in 1715. "I'm not any more concerned about Bennu than I was before," Davide Farnocchia of NASA's Center for Near Earth Object Studies (Cneos) said.

NASA said it could occur between now and 2,300, but it could happen somewhere after 2135. To see what the effect is: "The effect on Bennu is equivalent to the weight of three grapes constantly acting on the asteroid," explains Steve Chesley, a senior research scientist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. NASA researchers have announced that it could most likely make an impact with Earth somewhere on Sept. 24, 2182. Then his chances are 0.4% to hit the Earth. Don't think that the asteroid, or rather the space goose, has now been discovered. It has been known for a long time, but only now has it been discovered that it could hit the Earth. Research has been done on it for decades.

Hopefully it won't be the case to hit Earth.

We wish success to NASA and all those who work with these researchers to make accurate and good calculations and further success!
