NASA had to release an official statement denying that a giant meteor is going to strike our planet in September. Even though this story spread over the internet, NASA said that such upcoming collision with Earth is not going to happen in September or in the next several hundred years.
Other say that such statements concerning the future should not be made since NASA was taken by surprise in 2013 when Chelyabinsk meteor exploded over Russia.
Anyhow, approximately 10,000 major near earth objects have been discovered by scientists in our region of space. In case one of those one kilometer or larger in size objects smashed into Earth, we would experience similar event to Tunguska or even worse.
It has been reported in one of British news that according to internet bloggers our world is about to end during the event between September 22 to 28.
Many theories suggest that military operation Jade Helm is a preparation for foreseen anarchy which could arise as the asteroid approaches the planet. Another theory states that collision will announce the beginning of the Rapture.
As answer to all these theories, NASA came forward with a public statement dismissing all these allegations and predictions.
People are still questioning whether this is the real truth.
There are other claims which predicted a meteor colliding into the Atlantic Ocean near the island of Puerto Rico. Efrain Rodriguez sent a letter to NASA in 2010 in order to inform them that he received a message from God informing him that a meteor is going to hit ocean near Puerto Rico. The meteor would cause a massive earthquake and tsunami that would devastate the East Coast of the U.S., Mexico, Central, and South America. The consequences of such event could be devastating.
It is a misconception to think that NASA is all-seeing and all-knowing. Quite recently, NASA didn’t even know that a large asteroid was approaching our planet.
According to Professor Brian Cox an asteroid nearly missed the Earth a few months ago. He said that the asteroid was observed on its way out. In March, this asteroid under the name 2014 EC got within 61,637km of Earth.
At this time, NASA is tracing 1400 possibly dangerous asteroids.
A former astronaut Ed Lu said that up to now the humankind was saved by luck from a serious collision.
Therefore, NASA shouldn’t be making such absolute statements that nothing is going to hit us in the next several hundred years. And in order to maintain peace, NASA probably wouldn’t inform us that such thing might happen.
People shouldn’t rely on anything that is being reported by either an official government agency or the Internet. People should decide for themselves.
The only thing that is certain is that we were hit by meteors in the past, and something similar is going to happen in the future. With any luck, people will be warned in time to get out of the way.
