However, he emphasized three reasons not to worry about the event. one of them is that they will go further from the distance between the earth and the moon.
Data from NASA shows that three asteroids will pass close to Earth on Saturday, but we should not worry. Humanity is out of danger, says the specialized portal Science Alert.
In order to alleviate readers' fears, the media explains the reasons why this event would not give rise to fear.
The celestial bodies with coded names 2018 VS1, 2018 VR1 and 2018 VX1 will pass close to the ground. Of course, "close" in cosmic terms. Thus, according to the US aviation authorities forecasts, the first two will go much further than the average distance between the Earth and the Moon (384,400 kilometers).
The Asteroid 2018 VS1 will be at its closest approach to the ground at 3.62 lane, while the 2018 VR1 will be even further away: at 13.19 multifunctional distances. Only 2018 VX1 will pass a little closer than our satellite: at 0.99 lane.
Although on terrestrial scale, these distances look huge, in the cosmic world, they are considered small.
According to NASA's calculations, no object less than 140 meters away is considered to be potentially dangerous. According to this scale, the asteroids will spend the weekend with us completely unscathed.
2018 VS1 measures between 13 and 28 meters wide, while the asteroid 2018 VR1 is between 14-30 meters wide and 2018 VX1, from 8 to 18 meters.
A similar has just gone unnoticed
An asteroid has just gone close to our planet and we have not even noticed it. It is 2018 VA2, which with its 10-23 meter wide passed at dawn this Friday (01:01 GMT) to 1.87 Earth's multitude distances. And nothing happened. The planet continues with its normal life.
