The largest asteroid of the year will pass close to Earth on March 21
According to the International News Agency, the asteroid “2001 FO32” will pass close to the Earth on Sunday, which will be closely watched by astronauts. It will be the largest asteroid of the year that will pass just 2 million kilometers from Earth.
Top NASA officials have claimed that 95 percent of the planets equal to the size of 20 or larger have been listed and none of them are likely to collide with the Earth until the next century.
NASA officials say the satellite will travel at a speed of 124,000 kilometers per hour, which is higher than the normal speed of asteroids passing close to Earth. The planet was discovered 20 years ago.
