Asteroid Apophis deems to be one of the scariest rocks in the solar system. Although, it won’t be threatful to the Earth for nearly a century from now, according to the updated NASA calculations. Every 80,000 years or so, an object computing about three football fields in length smashes into the Earth. The discovery of the Asteroid Apophis in 2004 freaked a lot of people out due to its heavy mechanism. It could be remarked as the 80,000 years or so event that incurs once in a lifetime.
A hit from Apophis wouldn’t be Chicxulub bad—the 10-mile-wide (16-kilometer) asteroid that wiped out most life on the planet some 66 million years ago. Even though the Asteroid Apophis won’t be destructive, it would inflict catastrophic levels of local damage and trigger a global-scale impactful season. The destruction levels that were predicted back in 2004 did not have a severe impact, and we all now can breathe a huge sigh of relief.
Conclusively after the final results, NASA has manifested the Asteroid from its troublesome list, otherwise known as the Sentry Impact Risk Table. The new calculations by CNEOS, a subsidiary of NASA have helped in evading the Apophis from the danger diegesis.
