Earth might need simply 29 years left in its life cycle, as NASA has revealed that the planet might face huge destruction in 2036, following an asteroid hit. According to the world’s main house company, an asteroid named Apophis will collide with the Earth, inflicting the extinction of human species.
Apophis: The lone killer
It was in 2004 that NASA detected asteroid Apophis. For the previous 13 years, astronomers in NASA have been observing the celestial physique, and at last, they’ve come to the conclusion lethal hit might happen in 2036. The information has been confirmed by Duane Brown, a NASA official on the Washington Headquarters.
Steve Chesley, a NASA scientist, alongside along with his fellow teammate Paul Khodas from the jet propulsion laboratory of NASA, discovered the trajectory of the asteroid since 2009, and so they predict that the collision might trigger exactly on April 13, 2036. The up to date orbit of Apophis was finalized after observations made by Dave Tholen and his collaborators on the University of Hawaii’s Institute for Astronomy.
“Apophis was one of those heavenly bodies, which attracted the interest of the public, as it was discovered in 2004. Updated computational techniques and newly available data indicate the probability of collision of the Earth April 13, 2036,” writes NASA on its web site.
Apart from 2036, asteroid Apophis will come near the Earth in 2029 and 2068 too. According to Russian scientists, asteroid Apophis can have a detailed flyby in 2029 at a distance 32,000 away from the Earth, and through this time, even a small deviation in its trajectory will trigger mbad destruction.
November 19 handed uneventfully
Conspiracy theorists have claimed that the world will witness Armageddon on November 19, 2017, as rogue planet Nibiru will hit the Earth. But their predictions went unsuitable, because the date went uneventfully.
Another conspiracy theorist, David Meade believes that the apocalypse has already been triggered on October 15. According to Meade, the world is now going by way of a seven-year tribulation interval, the place we’ll witness a collection of pure disasters together with earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions. He additionally claims that Nibiru has already approached the Earth’s orbit.
