Elon Musk and NASA’s Terrible New Asteroid Warning Changes Everything.

Elon Musk and NASA’s Terrible New Asteroid Warning Changes Everything. Has it ever happened to you that an asteroid could one day hit Earth with disastrous consequences Whatever you answer, some of the brightest minds are busy figuring it out today.

How to help humanity to deal with such a disaster One of them is Elon Musk and he has taken his own steps to ensure that humanity survives such a catastrophe although NASA is considering the same problem and potential with an asteroid Also warning of cosmic collision.

To prevent such a phenomenon, NASA is working on a system called Darts. What is Darts and how will NASA use it to prevent asteroids from hitting the Earth? We take a look at how the head of NASA gives a dire warning about an asteroid hitting Earth.

Huge space objects that movies have created havoc when they hit Earth but is it true that asteroids can hit the planet Before answering this question there are a few things you need to know about asteroids There are rocky bodies that are too small to be called planets.

There are millions of asteroids ranging from hundreds of miles to several feet. All asteroids have less mass than Earth’s Moon. Asteroids exist mainly in three regions of the Solar System. Most asteroids lie in a giant ring between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.

This belt contains more than 200 asteroids larger than 60 miles or 100 km in diameter. Scientists estimate that the asteroid belt contains 1.1 million to 1.9 million asteroids larger than 1 km or 3,281 feet in diameter and millions of smaller asteroids. However, it is not everything in the main belt that is an asteroid. For example, Ceres was once considered only an asteroid.

Over the past decade, scientists have also identified a class of objects known as “main-belt comets,” which are small rocky objects with tails. While some tails form when objects collide with an asteroid or disintegrate asteroids, others may be comets in disguise. Asteroids are really old objects.

There are leftovers from the formation of our solar system about 4.6 billion years ago. Initially, the birth of Jupiter prevented any planetary bodies from forming in the gap between Mars and Jupiter, causing smaller objects there to collide and fragment into the asteroids seen today. Almost all asteroids are irregularly shaped, although you can find some of the largest.

Which are roughly spherical, such as Ceres. They often become pits or craters. For example, Vesta has a massive crater about 285 miles or 460 km in diameter. As asteroids move around the Sun in their elliptical orbits they spin, sometimes collapsing quite erratically.

In excess of 150 space rocks are likewise known to have a little sidekick moon. Some even have two moons! Binary or double asteroids also exist, in which two asteroids of roughly equal size orbit each other, as do the triple asteroid system. Near-Earth asteroids, or NEAs, orbit the Sun at the same distance as Earth.

Stargazers characterize some close Earth space rocks as “possibly perilous space rocks” or PHAs. These stones go in close vicinity to around 4.65 million miles or 7.48 million kilometers of Earth’s circle and are bigger than around 500 feet or 140 meters. Researchers have found in excess of 27,000 close Earth space rocks! Of these, just under 10,000 have measurements bigger than 500 feet.

We are in danger of colliding with an asteroid The short answer is yes. Ever since Earth formed about 4.5 billion years ago, asteroids and comets have regularly slammed into the planet. An asteroid over a quarter mile in size is capable of global disaster! The researchers estimated that such an impact would raise enough dust into the atmosphere to effectively create a nuclear winter.

Small asteroids can destroy a city or cause a catastrophic tsunami, which will seriously disrupt agriculture around the world. Space rocks smaller than 82 feet or 25 meters will burn as they enter Earth’s atmosphere. In 2013, an asteroid slammed into the atmosphere above the Russian city of Chelyabinsk, creating a shock wave that injured 1,200.
