This is pretty big news.
If doomsday theorists are to be believed, a huge asteroid will hit earth this summer, bringing on the apocalypse.
Predictors have pinpointed the date of the worlds end to be between 22-28 September.
Their belief is that a huge asteroid will collide with our planet, bringing on the rapture.
Scientists, however, aren’t quite convinced, and have rubbished the claims. They say that asteroids burn up when entering the worlds atmosphere, and usually break up into shards and burn up before reaching the ground.
A NASA spokesperson said:
NASA knows of no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth, so the probability of a major collision is quite small.Advertisement
In fact, as best as we can tell, no large object is likely to strike the Earth any time in the next several hundred years.
Well that is a relief. I’ve already survived 2012, the rapture, and the Mayan end of the world, I’m not sure I could manage another apocalypse.
