Description

Asteroid 2012 TC4 is heading towards Earth, with NASA claiming it gives their scientists a chance to test its space threat-scanning ability. The scientists said they are “excited” by the asteroid, which could be as large as 130 feet in size. It is expected to fly past Earth on October 12, and while NASA said it is "absolutely certain" the rock will miss the planet, they are unsure how close it will pass. On July 27, 31, and then again on Aug. 5, the approaching asteroid 2012 TC4 was observed by Olivier Hainaut, Detlef Koschny and Marco Micheli of the European Space Agency using one of the European Southern Observatory's 8.2-meter telescopes at its Very Large Telescope Observatory. These are the first observations of the small asteroid since shortly after its discovery in 2012.The asteroid is approaching at about 30,000 mph (14 kilometers per second), and will continue to brighten - reaching 13th magnitude at time of closest approach.According to NASA the new calculations indicate that TC4 will fly safely past our planet on Oct. 12.Even though scientists cannot yet predict exactly how close it will approach, they are certain it will come no closer than 4,200 miles (6,800 kilometers) from the surface of Earth. However, the space rock could also pass as far as 27,000 miles (43,500 kilometers) above the surface, or about one-eighth of the distance to the Moon.The asteroid has been out of range of telescopes since 2012.NASA scientists are excited about the upcoming close flyby of a small asteroid and plan to use its upcoming October close approach to Earth as an opportunity not only for science, but to test NASA’s network of observatories and scientists who work with planetary defense. https://www.nasa.gov/feature/jpl/aste... https://cneos.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news1... https://www.rt.com/viral/399242-missi... http://www.express.co.uk/news/science...
