Scientists have warned cosmic phenomenon that poses a direct threat to Earth
The staff of the Complutense University of Madrid conducted a study and found that the large asteroids in front of the terrain are broken up into fragments of smaller size. Pieces of celestial bodies entering the atmosphere at very complex trajectories that prevents the astrophysicists to track them using satellites or ground-based observatories.
Scientists say that a large number of fragmented asteroids revolve in earth orbit. At any moment they can break away and be attracted to the surface of the planet with her own gravitational field.
“Very often, meteorites, which fall on Earth can be traced by bright flashes in the sky are aliens from a near-earth asteroid belt, which appeared as a result of clashes inside of him,” said the Spanish researchers.
Astrophysics drew attention to the space object, newly fallen to Earth. Its diameter ranged from 2.7 to 3.7 meters. Body code 2018 LA entered the Earth’s atmosphere at speeds of 60,000 kilometres per hour, leaving a long fiery plume over Botswana in Africa.
“It’s much less of a meteorite the size we were instructed to keep track of,” explained officer planetary defense in the headquarters of NASA. It is assumed that the fragment formed in a collision of two or three asteroids in earth orbit. As found by the authors of the study, close to the Ground is another thirty similar celestial bodies. they should be watched closely after the fall of one such meteor in a populated area can lead to a major catastrophe. After all, when the body burst into the atmosphere, the people in the place of his fall is nothing to save.
Previously, American space Agency warned humanity about the terrible threat at the conference on issues of protection from asteroids, in the framework of the International Academy of Aeronautics. According to scientists, the Earth moving six potentially hazardous asteroids.
First one needs to approach the planet in 2027. He was named 1990 MU. The experts found that the outer body has a diameter of 2.8 kilometer. After that the Earth will “attract” to itself and other objects from space. And for a short period of time. The last one closely approaching our planet, is an asteroid called Apophis. He will fly in 2029.
Recall, the scientists were struck by an incredible find on the asteroid Itokawa, “surprise from space”.
As reported Politeka, the Earth is on the verge of death: “flying a huge asteroid,” NASA revealed details.
Also Politeka wrote that disaster is inevitable: a huge asteroid hurtling towards Earth, NASA begins to panic.
