Discovered in 2004, asteroid Apophis his behavior aroused the concern of scientists all over the world: apparently catastrophe on Earth can not be avoided
The asteroid Apophis is real cosmic body that not just attracts scientists of the world of science to his icy persona.
No, it’s not outside the realm of hypotheses about the notorious Nibiru, this is a real threat which carries the weight and activity of death.
It is unknown exactly whether there is a “plan B”, which is mined in different countries in the event of “collision with a chasm”. However, according to the Russian scientist, the expert of the Institute of Geosphere dynamics RAS Valery Shuvalov, today humanity has no means to change the asteroid’s trajectory.
Back to cosmic object.
The NM4 asteroid Apophis was discovered in 2004 at the Observatory Kitt Peak (Arizona). It was named after the Egyptian serpent, the destroyer, who is trying to destroy the Sun during his night transition.
A celestial body moving at a speed more than 30 km/s, approaching at a relatively small distance to the Ground, then moving away from her. Next time convergence is expected in the year 2068.
“If the body (the diameter of Apophis is more than 300 m approx. TASS) will fall on Moscow within the Garden ring, in the city everything will be destroyed. Also, serious damage will be on the territory of Moscow region. Ionospheric and radiation, probably the whole of Europe will cover”, – gave a rough estimate of the impact Shuvalov on the example of the Russian capital.
It is known that Apophis is similar to the size of the body fall to the Ground once in 10-100 thousand years.
If we turn to Hollywood blockbusters, it should immediately be noted that Intercontinental ballistic missiles, which are for example in Russia, even if you strike an asteroid near Earth, almost no effect on its trajectory, – said Valeriy Shuvalov.
The clock hands had not moved from 2018. The decision was made by the scientists, including 15 Nobel prize laureates, analyzing new risks. At the same time, arrows began to push back. It is reported by The Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists.
