A giant asteroid will collide with the orbit of Planet Earth next Saturday, November 7, at more than 13 kilometers per second, advances the British newspaper Daily Star.
To be precise, it is estimated that the space rock is between 79 and 180 meters wide, which, if confirmed, will be larger than the Cathedral of São Paulo, which measures 174 meters.
It is estimated that the asteroid passes a distance of 0.037 astronomical units from Earth, which corresponds to 5535119.66 kilometers, considered relatively close in space language. However, it is very unlikely to collide with Earth.
Since the asteroid that extinguished the dinosaurs 66 million years ago the Earth has not ‘seen’ pass ‘so close’ to one.
