Scientist: the Earth faces disaster
Russian astrologer from the Institute of applied mathematics named after M. V. Keldysh Leonid Elenin, discovered potentially hazardous asteroid that will approach the Earth on June 26, told what to expect in the foreseeable future.

According to scientist, our planet may at any time be faced with an asteroid that will lead to disaster.

Terrible asteroid, dubbed 2015 LK24, a Russian researcher discovered thanks to the data acquired 40-centimeter optical telescope, located in the state of new Mexico (United States). Immediately after that Elenin has told, when possible strike from space, what the heavenly bodies are potentially dangerous and which would lead to an open clash scientists asteroid with our planet.

"It is necessary to adequately understand the scientific term "potentially hazardous". This does not mean that the object can cause damage, but to observe it still should. As if he will change the orbit, and this can happen not earlier than hundreds and thousands of years, it will threaten the Earth. So far, no reason to panic does not exist. Based on the beliefs of science are dangerous asteroids larger than 140 meters, the minimum distance of convergence of the orbits of the asteroid and the Earth shall be less than 7.5 million km, it is likely that later these features will be reviewed. Taken conditions a long time ago, in the 90-ies, and the Chelyabinsk event clearly demonstrated that the body is many times smaller (Chelyabinsk meteorite had a diameter of about 17 meters) can cause quite a lot of damage", - quotes Elenin 360tv.ru.

According to astronomers, more than 90% of objects ranging in size from hundreds of meters to kilometers already found and hit the Ground virtually impossible. "Their orbits are studied, and earlier than 100 years, we will have little faces. If you look from another angle, with an asteroid measuring up to 100 meters, we can face at any time. Especially that asteroids the size of the Chelyabinsk opened several from the expected number, they often come close to the Earth and might run into her. Often fall similar bodies occurs over the ocean or in sparsely populated areas", says Elenin.

Besides all this, if an asteroid similar to the 2015 LK24, still collided with the Earth, it would be a disaster on a continental scale. "I'm not ready to evaluate in the megatons. But imagine, for many miles all life would be destroyed by the shock wave also, and it would be a seismic impact", - said the scientist.

In the media constantly displays information about the huge asteroids that pose a danger to Earth. So, on 14 may, Russian media reported on a celestial body of large dimensions, which can get dangerously close to our planet. And on 27 March, the asteroid that 20 times and 1,000 times stronger than Chelyabinsk meteorite, to the best knowledge of the media, could collide with Earth. Scientists have identified the approximate location of his fall: fallen to Europe, he would have destroyed several cities. However as a result of cosmic body the size of a dozen football fields flew within about 4.5 million miles from Earth.
