Asteroid Expected to Give Earth a ‘Close Shave’ Say NASA Scientists

Hide yo’ kids, hide yo’ wife, there’s a space rock coming our way!

The smarty-pants scientists at NASA have discovered an asteroid roughly half the size of a football field heading our way. Expected to cross our path sometime on February 15th, the massive rock will get within approximately 17,000 miles of the planet, which is closer than some satellites currently in orbit, but won’t actually hit us.

According to Don Yeomans, the head of NASA’s asteroid-tracking program, an asteroid of this size passes by Earth once every 40 years, but only hits us once every 1,200 years. I’m not sure if that’s supposed to make us feel better or not.

I say, just to be safe, they should have Bruce Willis on speed dial.
