asteroid wormwoodThe 1.5-miles wide mega space rock known as 2003 SD220 is on a NASA list of “high priority” asteroids for close observation because of the potential threat to the planet. A direct hit from the gigantic asteroid would be enough to destroy a whole continent or worse. NASA and other astronomers have a list of 17 high-priority near-Earth asteroids which have been or will be monitored by radar as they get close to the planet in 2015. Of these, a group of ten, including 2003 SD220, could be even bigger than astronomers have already calculated as so little is known about them. A smaller group of six, also including 2003 SD220, are also considered potentially hazardous to Earth due to their sizes and orbits. This is because they could be darker than initially thought and could therefore have some of their bulk obscured by the darkness of space. News of the close pass comes after it was reported yesterday that conspiracy theories believe a mysterious planet called Planet X or Nibiru, said to be four times the size of Jupiter will pass the Earth this month, but wipe out life due to its immense gravitational force ripping up continents and showering us with comets.
