Extinction Level Event and no Morgan Freeman?!
I read this in ABS-CBN Breaking News this morning. It gave me goose bumps. I just figured I would still be alive by then at the age of 37 or 38.
Asteroid heading for Earth, may hit in 2014
LONDON – A giant asteroid is heading for Earth and could hit in 2014, U.S. astronomers have warned British space monitors.
Astronomers, however, said the chances of a catastrophic collision are just one in 909,000.
Asteroid “2003 QQ47” will be closely monitored over the next two months. Its potential strike date is March 21, 2014, but astronomers said any risk of impact is likely to decrease as further data is gathered.
On impact, it could have the effect of 20 million Hiroshima atomic bombs, a spokesman for the British government’s Near Earth Object Information Center told BBC radio.
