A monoidal asteroid in a corner of infinity space is gaining momentum very quickly and American scientists have warned that it may hit the Earth. The name of this asteroid is ‘Apophis’ or the god of destruction. How powerful Apophis is, can be gauged from the fact that if it hits the Earth, it will have the same effect as an explosion of 88 million tons of TNT. This asteroid is about 1000 feet wide and is moving very fast towards the earth. Let’s know,
The catastrophic asteroid is gaining momentum very fast
American scientists have warned that this supernatural asteroid may hit the Earth. This warning has been given in a statement issued by the American Astronomical Society. University of Hawaii astronomer David Tholen said that data from the Subaru telescope revealed that Apophis was gaining momentum.
He said that data showed that the asteroid could hit the Earth in the year 2068. Apophis is named after the god of destruction of Greece. Scientists said that the exact determination of whether it will hit the Earth or not will be possible in the year 2029 when the asteroid will pass very close to the Earth. David said that during this time the asteroid could be seen without any telescope.
God of destruction warming in sunlight
Apophis asteroids were discovered by the Arizona Observatory on June 19, 2004. Since then scientists have been eyeing this asteroid. Researchers discovered Apophis through the Subaru telescope this year and after analysis found that it had gained momentum. It was found that the asteroid is heating in sunlight.
