NASA warns that there is TWICE asteroid that Big Ben's size could screw the Earth with a force of 50 megaton nuke



An Asteroid twice the size of Big Ben could blow to Earth with the power of a nuclear bomb, according to NASA.

The rock – known as 2018 LF16 – is enough a foot of 700 feet and it is anticipated that we can hit our planet on August 8, 2023.

NASA has warned that there is one of 30 million chances that the asteroid could break to Earth in five years

But fortunately, the impact is very unlikely as NASA also anticipates that it will only happen one in 30 million chances.

The rock has probably 62 different potential impact projections with Earth over the next century.

Other possible dates when the asteroid might fall on August 3, 2024, and 1 August, 2025.

At Torino Effect Risk Scale, this special asteroid runs as a "zero" level threat, which means that the possibility of its collision with the Earth does not exist or is near to the some that do not exist.

How does Nasa know asteroids near the Earth and deal with large and dangerous hazards?

But the US space agency will keep track of this space rock.

If an asteroid breaks into the Earth, it could cause vast destruction.

An object that this great one would have an effect of 50 Megatons – which is equivalent to the Tsar Bomba nuclear device.

There is a much less asteroid hit over Chelyabinsk Oblast in Russia in 2013, injuring 1,000 people with asthma caused by astrophic explosion.

Asteroids – or "objects near the Earth" (as NASA likes to call) – pass the Earth regularly, and their fame give them somewhere between everyday and everyday events.

Earlier this month, three asteroids had hurt the Earth quickly

"As they orbit the Sun, the Near-Earth Objectives may come near the Earth," explained NASA.
