The space agency has spent the past few months debunking claims that a “doomsday space rock” will wipe out humanity this month.
Now it has confirmed the 270-metre Asteroid 2012 TT5 will speed past the planet tomorrow and insisted our species will live to fight another day.
Despite NASA’s reassuring words, conspiracy theorists claim humanity’s final hours could come between 22 and 28 September.
However, Nasa has given us the all-clear.
A spokesperson said: “NASA knows of no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth, so the probability of a major collision is quite small.”
Imaginative conspiracy theorists have also claimed the Large Hadron Collider could attract a giant asteroid towards Earth.
hey are worried the particle physics experiment could send out a massive magnetic field that could draw a massive asteroid to the planet with devastating consequences.
But that hasn’t stopped doom-monger speculating that a giant asteroid could suddenly appear and spark another Ice Age – or worse.
People have been speculating for years that scientists are dicing with destruction and could potentially create a black hole which swallows up the planet.
