Will an Asteroid Hit Earth in 2022?

kiss your family hug them NASA, other space agencies, astronomers and even hobbyists spend a lot of time on searching the sky for these so-called near Earth objects (NEOs). They try to deduce their orbit as accurately as possible. Astronomers then rank the objects by impact probability and put them onto a list. You can […]
