Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, has previously claimed that the Earth has no defense against giant asteroids facing the Earth Planets are approaching as NASA and SpaceX are developing systems that would help prevent space debris from colliding with Earth.
A monster asteroid taller than the world's tallest buildings, including London's Shard, will cruise near Earth at 1
The huge space rock called the 2000 QW7 has a diameter of approximately 290 to 650 meters, which seems rather massive compared to the 311 meter high Shard and the 828 meter high Burj Khalifa.
Nevertheless, it is unlikely that the Giant will hit the Earth, according to CNEOS, if it circles around 2000 QW7s within 0.03564 astronomical units of our planet, which is about 5.3 million km.
Like Our Planet, the Asteroid Circled the Sun The last time it approached Earth was about 18 years ago, on September 1, 2000, and is expected to close again in 2038 (if we survive this time ).
Previously, Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk had aroused fears about Earth not being able to defend itself against giant asteroids like the 99942 asteroid Apophis, known as the "God of Chaos" and potentially dangerous according to space agencies is classified as being within 7.4 million kilometers of Earth.
SpaceX and NASA reported by Elon Musk are now working together on an asteroid diversion mission that will prevent the arrival of Apophis in April 2029 and will test Earth's ability to defend itself against giant asteroids.
