Panic! The asteroid approaching Earth and measuring twice the Statue of Liberty

UNITED STATES.- It was recently revealed that asteroid “441987” will reach its closest point to Earth on June 25, 2021. In this way, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JLP) reported that although ‘this is not a “dangerous” space rock, you have to be vigilant because of its size, as it measures no less than twice the Statue of Liberty. “Near-Earth objects are comets and asteroids that have been pushed by the gravitational pull of neighboring planets into orbits that allow them to enter the vicinity of Earth,” NASA explained. In addition, it was added that its exact dimensions are 187 meters long and that it travels at a speed of 13.4 kilometers per second and will be very close to the Earth. In this sense, the space agency explained that approximately, the distance between the asteroid and our planet will be 15 times that between the Earth and the Moon. Additionally, “441987” has a size that for many people could be catastrophic and no wonder, but despite its colossal dimensions, NASA has revealed that there is no potential danger. Source: Pixabay. In the meantime, it should be noted that this asteroid has been classified as “Apollo Type”. This affects its rotation, which causes it to rotate on its axis for 4.9 hours and orbit the Sun every 366 days. For this reason, from time to time it passes very close to our planet every year. Despite this, alarms have been raised in social networks, as this type of phenomenon usually attracts the attention of Internet users. On the other hand, it should be remembered that the asteroid “441987” was seen for the first time on July 14, 2010. The last time it “appeared” on the radars of the various agencies was on August 15, 2020. Now, this June 25, 2021 will happen again and NASA has assured that although it is huge, “there is no possibility of collision”, so they urged not to lose calm.
