Asteroid 'Beast' to Fly By Earth on Sunday

A new-found huge asteroid, nicknamed "The Beast," is expected zoom by Earth this weekend.

The asteroid 2014 HQ124, which is the size of a football stadium, poses no chance of hitting Earth in its flyby on Sunday (June 8), and will pass by at a range of three times the distance between the Earth-moon on Sunday (June 8). It was discovered on April 23 by NASA's Wide-Field Infrared Survey Explorer, a sky-mapping space telescope. (Culture, Hi-tech, Space)

BYE!! Where are you going? lol

"poses no chance of hitting Earth"

Then why dub it the beast? T-T They shoulda called it Big foot. We all know where it'll be and what time but chances are when we all look, we'll see nothing.

Well, I landed on Planet X a few hours ago. The species here seem friendly, they've taken me in as one of their own, gave me my own house and have been given access to the internet. It was nice knowing you guys!

P.S.
The anal probe has been outlawed for a few years now :(

Wow. They discovered an asteroid that has the potential to completely obliterate a few States only 6 weeks ago? What if it was heading our way? Is that even enough time to do anything?

What if it landed in the Pacific or Atlantic Ocean. Is that even enough time to evacuate a potential hundreds of millions of people?

chances are eventually one of these asteroids will hit earth ..

Even if we take it seriously there's not much we can do against something like that.

You overestimate the power of technology and information.

If an asteroid was to hit earth, there is practically nothing we could do to stop it, and like death, just accept the inevitable.

We as a species are not as smart as we like to believe.

Asteroids like these pass by all the time, but there hasn't been any fear mongering doomsday news in a while so they had to come up with something =P.

Even if it were to head towards Earth, I doubt Nasa is prepared to do anything about this size of one.
