Scientists predict an asteroid, with more force than twenty-two atomic bombs will destroy Earth in 2182. The asteroid, “Bennu” passes our planet every six years but it has been predicted that Earth could come into contact with it on September 24, 2182.
Although the collision course is a long way off, NASA is working on plans to reroute Bennu and are said to be in the “final leg” of the mission.
Bennu is estimated to be a third of a mile wide. This is half the size of the asteroid that supposedly made dinosaurs extinct, meaning that although it may cause devastation 600 miles from the crash site. It is not big enough to cause a worldwide extinction.
