NASA has denied the risk of the impact of asteroids on Earth on October 3, 2019 | Society



The asteroid opportunity "FT3 2007" which has an impact on the Earth is 1 in 11 million, a very low number so that in practice it is equal to 0.

Sensational websites around the world have published in the past few days that a giant asteroid can have an impact on the Earth October 3, 2019, causing disaster on this planet. Without the existence of this asteroid, it is called "FT3 2007" It's real, it's wrong that there is a danger of impact.

As explained by NASA inside database from the Near Earth Object Study Center (CNEOS), the possibility of an "2007 FT3" asteroid impacting the Earth was 0.0000092%, that is, one in 11 million, very low number so in practice it is equal to 0.

Even inside Torino scale, which classifies impact hazards on a scale of 0 to 10, with 0 being a possible zero impact at all and 10 definite impacts that threaten the future of Humanity, asteroid "2007 FT3" is classified as 0.

You can't even say that an asteroid will "touch" the Earth, because it will pass more than 420,000 km at its closest point (to compare, the Moon is at an average distance of 384,400 km from our planet). The distance is quite far and more than safe.
