NASA warns of another asteroid threatening Earth

Friday May 6, 2022 The sixth most dangerous asteroid on the European Space Agency’s list of near-Earth hazards is 2009 FJ1, an asteroid (or, if not, too close) that could crash into Earth.

The list is based on the Palermo scale, which estimates the risk of each asteroid Its size and speed, The probability of its impact and the time remaining for a possible collision.

According to the newspaper Clarin, Asteroid 2009 JF1 NASA estimates “Dangerous”

The asteroid is only 16 meters in diameter, but it travels at very high speeds and has a relatively high probability of impact. Its speed will be 95,000 kilometers per hour.

The asteroid is about the same size as the one that fell near Chelyabinsk (Russia) in 2013, emitting 500 kilotons of energy. Thirty atomic bombs, like the one in Hiroshima.

The space agency compares its size to the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt. Through the following parameters, the agency established the exact moment at which the asteroid could land on Earth: May 6, 2022 at 5:12 AM (Argentine time).

However, the impact of the 2009 asteroid JF1 was estimated by the US space agency A probability of 3,800 It happens.

If you blindly cross a track where a convoy passes every 6 hours, this equates to the risk of a train crashing.
