Asteroid has no chance of hitting Earth, scientists say

LOS ANGELES An asteroid at least 500 feet long will make a rare close pass by Earth next week, but there is no chance of an impact, scientists reported today.
The object, known as 2007 TU24, is expected to whiz by Earth on Tuesday with its closest approach at 334,000 miles, or about 1.4 times the distance of Earth to the moon.
The nighttime encounter should be bright enough for medium-sized telescopes to get a glimpse, said Don Yeomans, manager of the Near-Earth Object Program Office at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which tracks potentially dangerous space rocks.
However, next week's asteroid pass "has no chance of hitting, or affecting, Earth," Yeomans said.
An actual collision of a similar-sized object with Earth occurs on average every 37,000 years.

Asteroids are coming and going near the Earth but they do not cause great havocs as we are afraid of or imagine! Even sky labs are falling sometimes they are entering the seas of the world! so, nothing to worry about. It is a natural phenomena happening regularly in the Vast Universe!Answered by T A RAMESH, 28 Jan '08 12:49 pm
