A large asteroid with a size of about 2900 miles an hour will pass by Earth in the morning
- Asteroid 2013 MD8 is expected to pass Earth on Wednesday, according to NASA
- 280 feet, which competes with the size of Big Ben
- He will fly on our planet at about 13 months distances, or just over 3 million miles
A massive asteroid, considered to be larger than Big Ben, has to go past the Earth tomorrow evening with a dizzying speed of 30,422 miles an hour.
An asteroid, named 2013 MD8, is expected to pass over the Earth just over 3 million miles, or about 13 times the distance between Earth and the Moon, at 12:55 (ET) on Tuesday.
The diameter, which is close to 280 feet, MD8 competes with the Big Ben watch to its size, which is 320 feet.

The asteroid, named 2013 MD8, is expected to pass the Earth just over 3 million miles, or about 13 times more distance between Earth and the Moon at 12:55 (ET) on Tuesday
A huge cosmic rock is expected to do "close approach" to the Earth, b Its trajectory should see it safe.
NASA believes that the asteroid is "dangerous" if they fall within the limits of 4600,000 miles of our planet.
The MD8 asteroid falls under the category of "Ground Object" (NEO), which NASA describes as all asteroids and comets moving in orbit within 30 million miles of Earth.
NASA tracks these and other Earth-related Earth (NEO) areas to track any potential threats.
The massive asteroid, named 2013 MD8, will rise past the Earth at a dizzying speed of 30,422 miles an hour. This falls under the category of NASA land-based objects
With a diameter of up to 280 feet, the Asteroid 2013 MD8 competes with the Big Ben watch to its size, which is 320 feet. Space rock probably falls under the category of surface ground
"Nobody in the last 1000 years has been known to have been killed by a meteorite or effects of the same effect," NASA's jet propulsion laboratory said. .
"NASA does not know the asteroid or comet, which are now on the course of the collision with the Earth, so the probability of a big collision is quite small.
"In fact, as far as possible, no big object can strike the Earth at any time during the next several hundred years," they continued.
The agency believes that of more than 600,000 known asteroids in our solar system, approximately 16,000 are NEO.
MD8 also falls under the category of "potentially dangerous objects" that are those that reach a minimum distance of .05 au from Earth and have an absolute value (H) of 22.0 or brighter.
Asteroid 2013 MD8 has an absolute value of 24.2.
WHAT DO YOU MUST DO TO STOP ASTEROID CAST TO THE LAND?
This would include the evacuation of the impact zone and the infrastructure of the movable keys.
Detection of the orbital trajectory, size, shape, mass, composition and rotation dynamics would help experts to determine the severity of the potential impact. The key to harm reduction is to find any potential threat as soon as possible.
NASA is now moving forward with spacecraft in a refrigerator that can prevent asteroids from colliding with the Earth. It is planned to test a small asteroid without a threat for 2024.
This is the first mission that demonstrated the technique of asteroid deviation for planetary defense.
The Dual Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) would use what is known as
The effect changed the speed of the threatening asteroid to a small fraction of its overall speed, but due to this, long before the predicted effect, this little push will be added. over time, to a large displacement of the asteroid path from Earth.
