Larger asteroids are also known as planetoids.

An Asteroid titled as Asteroid 2019 OK came hurtling towards the Earth at a speed of almost 15 miles a second, before flying past.

First spotted in 2006, the space rock will make its closest approach on August 10, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS).

About six space objects around the size of Asteroid 2006 QQ23 pass by our planet each year, but thankfully all pose a statistically insignificant risk to life here on Earth. The asteroid has a height of 1,454 feet and diameter 1,870 feet.

To this day, NASA monitors the potential asteroid collision and continue to release official word to settle the fears of the people.

They've additionally admitted that they'd no concept {that a} large rock was headed to our Earth because it got here from the path of the solar. It orbits the Sun at a distance of 85-154 kilometers.

Then one of the scientists responded that we might use space ships to give a nudge to the asteroid. "You would then hit it with a spacecraft kind of the size of a small auto, and by impacting it, it impacts energy and momentum and will move it slightly off its orbit".

Experts believe that such threats from deep space could be addressed with prime importance, as a hit may cause catastrophic effects, sometimes at a global level. Based on their latest findings, Earth is now not in danger of getting hit by one of these giant asteroids.

Researchers have also considered building a "giant laser" to slightly push an asteroid out of the way, Wordon said.

In either scenario the asteroid would change the climate for many years. The method involves the asteroid's gravity attracting the spacecraft, situated about a mile or so away, which would hypothetically move it over time. This crater strongly resembles the marine impact sites on Earth. "The question is when, and we want to be prepared for that".
