    Space object to narrowly miss Earth

    Posted 4 hours 37 minutes ago
    It will hurtle past at a distance of about 130,000 kilometres - a third of the distance between Earth and the Moon. (Reuters: NASA)


    An object from space will pass close to Earth in the next few hours, with scientists still puzzling over what it might be.
    The object is about 10 to 15 metres wide and is believed to be a small asteroid.
    It will hurtle past at a distance of about 130,000 kilometres - a third of the distance between Earth and the Moon.
    The object has an orbit of almost exactly one year, and this will be its closest known approach between now and 2024.

    Is this the one the Russians want to take a shot at and see if they can blow if off course? Of course, with their luck they'll nudge it the wrong way. . .

    Better than the yanks taking a shot at it, with their luck/skill they'd nudge it into the british team helping them.

    Based on one of their recent achievements I think NASA is more likely to see if they can crash the thing into the moon.
