Asteroid on target for Earth in 2019

| Posted: Jul 24, 2002 10:04 pm

After a heavy night on the alcohol I come home to visit my favourite Australian newspaper which is news.com.au to find a headline suggesting a asteroid is on target for Earth in 2019. Someone send Bruce and the team up in Armageddon style now dammit!

 

Scientists have calculated there is a risk of asteroid 2002 NT7 hitting earth on February 1, 2019.

 

If it hit earth, the asteroid would be travelling at 28km a second, enough to wipe out a continent and cause global climatic change.

 

But astronomers believe observations in the next few days will show it is not on the same trajectory as earth.
