Asteroid to Pass Extremely Close By Earth On Monday


news.yahoo.com

UPDATE for 5:35 p.m. ET: NASA has recalculated the time of closest approach for this event to be about 3 1/2 hours later than initially reported. The change is reflected below.
Here's something to dwell on as you head to work next week: A small asteroid the size of a tour bus will make an extremely close pass by the Earth on Monday, but it poses no threat to the planet
The asteroid will make its closest approach at 1:14 p.m. EDT (1714 GMT) on June 27 and will pass just over 7,500 miles (12,000 kilometers) above the Earth's surface, NASA officials say. At that particular moment, the asteroi

Why is it we only hear about these at the last minute? I mean they can predict a potential impact in 2036 but can't see something right under our noses. We're either not spending enough time looking for these things or they are hushing it up until the last minute for some reason. I don't see how we are supposed to prepare with hardly any notice...its especially scary if they dont see these things until they are right in our face.

If they can spot bigger objects and work out trajectories. Surely, they should be looking for small ones too? In terms of space. 7,500km is pretty much like banging down the door on us. This thing better put on a good show!

Hardly a global killer, but if it did hit it could probably do some damage to a small town. Its not just the size, its the fact that its going to be traveling at a high rate of speed prior to hitting its target. Then you got the fire and debris from it as well.
