As per recent tragedy in the field of science, the newly-discovered 16-foot wide asteroid crossed as much as missed close to the earth by a mere 8,900 miles on Tuesday.

The distance between the surfaces was just about 14,000 km as the same distance as a flight from New York City to New Zealand, however there is no report over any destruction no danger of a collision with the earth to the orbiting satellites, source reported.

There is no need to worry because if there is any chances of destructive the Asteroid 2012 KT42 on the planet’s surface, then is likely would have burned up before do the same, according to source report.

Even if the asteroid hit, then there is no collision on earth as the space rock is too small to cause significant damage.
