Asteroid on target for Earth in 2019

Asteroid on target for Earth in 2019 news post from TweakTown's online news computing and technology content pages

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.
