The Asteroid, as big as the world’s longest building, the Burj Khalifa, will pass through the Earth on Sunday, 29 November. The name of this Astroid is 153201 (2000 WO107) and it will pass from near our home at 10:30 AM to Indian time.
By the way, whenever an Astroid is about to come, then users talk about these on social media platforms. Some express concern, many discuss further situations. This time more or less the same happened because the size of the 153201 (2000 WO107) meteorite is so large. It was reported that it is moving at the speed of the missile.
However, according to the US space program agency National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), in reality, the threat or risk to civilization from space objects is extremely rare. It happens once in a few million years.
How is Asteroid 153201 (2000 WO107) ?: The diameter of this Astroid is more than 500 meters and it is about 800 meters high i.e. almost the size of Burj Khalifa in Dubai. The Burj Khalifa is the tallest building in the world, with a length of 830 meters. This thing was revealed in the year 2000. According to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory website, this meteorite was discovered in the year 2000. Explain that they are considered as Near-Earth Objects (NEO), which are a group of many comets and astride. Due to gravity, they pass around the houses. They are mostly of snow, with fine parts of dust. They rarely come near the Earth.
What should I worry about ?: Since the size of this meteorite is large, it will create a distance of about 43 lakh kilometers while passing through the Earth. This distance is the same as that between our house and the moon. According to The Planetary Society, there are estimated to be about 1 billion astride with a meter more than a meter. But significant damage affecting the earth can be larger than 30 meters.
According to NASA’s Near-Earth Object Observations Programme, asteroids that are 140 meters or larger (larger than a small football stadium) are of ‘great concern’. By the way, it has been said that an asteroid larger than 140 meters is not likely to hit the Earth for the next 100 years.
