NASA: "Asteroid the size of the Great Pyramid may hit Earth in 2022."

On May 6, 2022, an asteroid predicted to be about the measurement of the Great Pyramid of Giza may hit the Earth, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

As per NASA via The Daily Express on Nov. 16, despite the one in 3,800 probabilities and a measly 0.026% probability of the asteroid crashing into the Earth, the worst-case situation will certainly be of a commotion much the same as an apocalypse movie, or far and away more terrifying.

In the situation that the “city-killer” asteroid, listed JF1, is to hit Earth, the collision would be proportionate to the explosion of 230 kilotons of TNT. That is assumed to be 15 times more grounded than the nuclear bomb that hit Hiroshima in 1945, which damaged the entire city with 15 kilotons of power.

The statement also declares that despite whether the asteroid was to keep a strategic distance from civilization and hit "the remotest piece of the Pacific Ocean," the collision would still be powerful enough to cause destructive tsunamis and “nuclear winter.”

Scientists too were said to measure the huge asteroid to be approximately an astounding 420 feet across or around 130 meters in diameter.

This asteroid is being watched by NASA JPL through Sentry and is defined as “a highly automated collision monitoring system that continually scans the most current asteroid catalog for possibilities of future impact with Earth over the next 100 years.”

And because of this Asteroid Jf1’s claimed potentially disastrous impact, NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) has been watching the space rock for 10 years presently, starting when they earlier discovered in 2009.
