ASTEROIDS could rain down on the earth for 100 years, shocked experts have just warned.
A previously unknown asteroid belt has been located in deep space and is now hurtling towards our part of the solar system.
It means a 'global killer' could collide with Earth as soon as 2020, wiping out life as we know it and changing the climate for millennia.
The terrifying predictions came as NASA revealed disturbing new data showing 400 impacts are expected between 2017 and 2113, based on new observational data of objects seen in space over the past 60 days.
Most will have a maximum diameter of around 100 metres - the size of seven double decker buses - and the potential to cause significant damage.
But concerned scientists warned a colossal "monster" is also heading our way, with one 'mega' asteroid threatening earth in just SIX years.

Perhaps one of the worst offenders for touting extreme weather is the UKs The Daily Express which at this time of year will print dozens of headlines, from “record breaking snowfall” to “the coldest winter in decades”. These notoriously exaggerated and inaccurate reports are written by Nathan Rao.
But where do they get their information from? Well in the case of The Daily Express the answer is via little known weather companies, such as “Exacta Weather” or “Vantage Weather Services”, companies with a less-than-stellar reputation for long range forecasting, who use, amongst other things, “variations in solar output” to determine their findings. Such findings that curiously consistently predict extreme or record breaking weather patterns for tabloid newspapers to report.
In fact these companies are barely companies at all, in some cases merely individuals who claim to set up weather predicting companies, like in the case of Jonathan Powell, who has sprung up as a forecaster for more than one weather service in the past.
