-NASA said- Asteroid Bennu is equal to 22 nuclear bombs
New Delhi (EMS). According to the American space agency NASA, an asteroid named Bennu is expected to hit the Earth after 159 years. After the collision of this asteroid, there will be a scene of devastation on Earth and there will be destruction all around. Organizations like NASA have been monitoring space for years amid viral predictions.
He has now revealed a date when a giant asteroid is expected to hit the Earth. The revelation of this mystery has been shared on the Instagram account ‘Inside History’. Scientists have compared it to the power of 22 atomic bombs. Although NASA stressed that while there is a risk, the chances of Bennu actually hitting Earth 159 years later on September 24, 2182 are very low. Given that this date falls at the end of the 22nd century there is no immediate cause for concern.
Bennu, which passes Earth every six years, is half the size of the asteroid believed to have caused the extinction of the dinosaurs. While the Bennu impact could cause devastation within a 600-mile radius of the crash site, it is unlikely that the world will become extinct. NASA is actively developing strategies to alter Bennu’s path and prevent a collision. The mission is currently in its final stages.
In response to the viral post, a user jokingly commented, ‘I will probably leave by then, but thanks for the warning.’ Another quipped, “Well, good luck to whoever it is at that time.” They should save this post to post again in the future. Let us tell you that such news and predictions often create fear in the minds of people. However, many people dismiss them as vague and unreliable. But when such predictions come from the American space agency NASA, they have more weight and credibility.
