Asteroid set to miss Earth tomorrow by 3 million miles

Asteroid set to miss Earth tomorrow by 3 million miles

NASA has reported a ’potentially hazardous’ asteroid is set to pass close by Earth around 6:05 EST on Feb 15th. Known affectionately as 163373(2002 PZ39), it is passing at 3 million miles from Earth (or 15x the Earth-Moon distance). If the asteroid did hit, it would have caused a nuclear winter-like effect.

This happens all the time. The odds of one of these hitting Earth in any given year is extremely small. That being said the odds increase over longer periods of time and it is very troubling that we do not have a clear and effective plan for dealing with an incoming asteroid.
