The OP didn't mention much of anything so I relied upon the chosen forum to interpret his intent. Now I know my interpretation was incorrect.
I know that the Earth has been hit by big rocks before and will be again. It's a roll of the dice. But that's no secret.
If the object had been on a collision course with Earth, it wouldn't have done any damage anyway. But planetary scientists said the asteroid, or whatever it was, set a new standard: A 10-meter-wide (33-foot-wide) asteroid can be detected two days before it potentially hits Earth.
