Astrophysicist Neil DeGrasse Tyson says asteroid could hit US day before ElectionOctober 20, 2020
If 2020 hadn’t already been bad enough due to pandemic. Now famed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson posted a picture of an asteroid approaching Earth saying that it could strike the planet before the election on Nov. 3
Neil deGrasse Tyson says asteroid 2018VP1, a refrigerator-sized space-rock, is hurtling towards us at more than 40,000 km/hr and It may buzz-cut Earth on Nov 2, the day before the Presidential Election.
NASA has verified that it has a trajectory of potentially hitting the U.S. on Nov. 2nd. NASA estimated it to weigh about 35,273lbs (15999 kg) but the chances of it hitting Earth is about one in 240, or 0.41 percent. The asteroid is expected to come as close as between 7500 km and 410000 km of Earth.
But, don't worry, according to NASA, if it hits our atmosphere, it would look really bright before breaking up into tiny pieces.

Asteroid 2018VP1, a refrigerator-sized space-rock, is hurtling towards us at more than 40,000 km/hr. It may buzz-cut Earth on Nov 2, the day before the Presidential Election. It’s not big enough to cause harm. So if the World ends in 2020, it won’t be the fault of the Universe.
