In recent days news has emerged that a meteorite will impact the earth, but the National Administration of Aeronautics and Space (NASA) comes to the rescue revealing the truth. Clearing doubts and hysteria, NASA answers if the world will end.
There are hundreds of theories of how the world might end; from the arrival of 'Seven Horsemen of the Apocalypse' to the imminent global warming. Our planet and humanity is so sensitive that any theory can unleash collective nervousness.
But fortunately human nature to know the truth will always prevail, that's why NASA takes us out of doubt and it reveals if humanity will come to an end on October 3 of this year.
According to the US government agency, asteroid '2007 FT3' yes it exists and it will happen close to our beautiful planet Earth.
To nothing more and nothing less than 420,000 km from us.
And although this distance may seem very close in the universe, for comparison, the moon is 384,400 km., We do not have to worry because the distance is safe and will not even touch the Earth.
But NASA not only answers if the world will end, it also gives us statistics to calm down, because it has the Near Earth Object Studies Center, which tells us that the possibility that the asteroid '2007 FT3 will impact with our planet is of 1 in 11 million, just 0.0000092%.
The probability is so low that the scale that classifies the impact hazard called 'Turin Scale' is 0.
Where 0 is a null possibility and 10 is a safe impact.
Humanity can be calm once again, because its future is not threatened and the world is not over, at least not by this asteroid.
