A fridge the size asteroid will be magnified by Earth today, just before the grand presidential showdown between Donald Trump and Joe Biden tomorrow.
NASA says the object, known as 2018 VP1, has only a 0.41 percent chance of entering Earth’s atmosphere, so you don’t need to panic when preparing to go to the polls to vote. Even if it enters the atmosphere, it will likely burn before it gets close to the ground.
The asteroid is small in space rock ̵1; about 6.5 feet wide. It is expected to fly between 4,700 and 260,000 miles from Earth, traveling at a speed of more than 21,000 mph.
Neil deGrasse Tyson, famous astrophysicist, has also considered this asteroid.
“The asteroid 2018VP1, a space rock the size of a refrigerator, is rushing towards us at more than 40,000 km / h. It could rock the Earth on November 2, the day before the Presidential Election. It’s not big enough to do harm. So if the World ends in 2020, it’s not Universe’s fault, ”Tyson tweeted.
2018VP1 was first identified at the Palomar Observatory in California in November 2018.
