But have you ever wondered what the odds are that we’ll actually see an asteroid impact like the kinds we’ve seen in the movies?
While we have seen some objects come within a relatively close millions of miles, there are a couple asteroids that have the attention of NASA scientists:
- Asteroid 1950DA has potential of hitting earth in the year 2880.
- Object 101955-1999 RQ36 looks to have several opportunities of hitting earth after 2165.
