An asteroid with a diameter equal to half the height of the Pyramid of Cheops is flying towards Earth

Various cosmic bodies, including asteroids, periodically approach the Earth. In the near future, another asteroid will approach the planet, which was named 2021 AU.

According to Express, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has classified it as "potentially dangerous." The asteroid will fly near the Earth at a rather small distance by cosmic standards – it will be just over 1.3 million km. The cosmic body is approaching the planet at a speed of 12.2 km / s, which is much more than the average speed of a bullet.


The closest space body to Earth will be on Thursday, January 6, at 23: 27 GMT, or January 7 at 02: 27 GMT. After the asteroid passes near the planet, it will continue to move in an elliptical orbit around the Solar System.

The asteroid's diameter is 77 m – about half the height of the Pyramid of Cheops in Egypt. It is noted that if it fell to Earth, it would be an apocalyptic disaster for millions of people on the planet.

At the same time, the largest asteroid that will fly near the Earth in 2021 will be 2001 FO32. It will approach the planet on March 21. Its diameter is estimated at about 1 km, which is comparable in length to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.

Recall that on January 3, the "potentially dangerous" asteroid 2020 YA1 flew past the Earth. It was larger than a double-decker bus. At the same time, its speed was quite small – 3.7 km / s. The width of the stone was 16 meters.
