A warehouse Sized Asteroid Said Hello To Earth

A warehouse Sized Asteroid Said Hello To Earth

It's half the distance to the moon and it's at this distance from the Earth that an asteroid has passed, on Sunday, April 15th.

Earthsky.org reported: "An Apollo type earth-crossing asteroid, was flying through space at 66,174 miles per hour".

According to NASA, an object over 25 meters in diameter would cause "local damage around the impact zone".

According to NASA, it posted on its website that it is nothing as compared to asteroids which are present in between the Mars and Jupiter, whose length can spread across 580 miles.

Speaker Ryan departure sparks unrest, GOP fears losing House
His decision fueled fresh doubts about the party's ability to fend off a Democratic wave, fed by opposition to Trump, in November. Still, for many Republicans, Ryan has been "a steady force in contrast to the president's more mercurial tone", said Rep.

The sheer size of 2018 GE3, estimated to be 3.6 times larger than the Tunguska asteroid that wreaked havoc in 1809 when it exploded over Siberia in Russian Federation, was enough to pose a genuine threat.

NASA scientists said they first noticed the massive asteroid at an observatory in Arizona less than 24 hours before the flyby. That's about three to six times wider than the space rock that penetrated the Earth's atmosphere in 2013 and exploded over the city of Chelyabinsk in Russian Federation, packing 20 to 30 times the energy of the Hiroshima atomic bomb, notes EarthSky.

"2018 GE3 was discovered by the Catalina Sky Survey approaching Earth on April 14th".

"It doesn't take a very large object".

China telecoms firm ZTE hit by USA sanctions
Last year, AT&T pulled out of negotiations to sell Huawei phones in the USA amid pressure over national security concerns. It's also said that ZTE kept on numerous employees that had been involved with violating the law.

Just a day after being discovered dangerously close and approaching Earth, an asteroid, potentially capable of causing significant damage, has darted past our planet almost missing it on an astronomical scale.

The asteroid would have likely disintegrated as soon as it entered Earth's atmosphere due to the 66,000 miles per hour speed it was traveling and the "friction with the air", EarthSky reported.

"If 2018 GE3 had hit Earth, it would have caused regional, not global, damage, and might have disintegrated in the atmosphere before reaching the ground", Spaceweather.com explained in a Facebook post.

"A preliminary analysis of the orbit of 2018 GE shows this is the closest this particular space rock has come to Earth at least since 1930", EarthSky reports.
