.The large space rock, dubbed 7335 (1989 JA), is estimated to measure around 5,900 feet across, figures from NASA's Center for Near Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) show.This estimate would mean you could fit roughly two of the world's tallest buildings—the Burj Khalifa in Dubai—across its length.

According to NASA's figures, no other near-Earth object that is scheduled to make a close approach to the Earth in 2022 is as large as 1989 JA.The asteroid is scheduled to make its close approach on May 27, when it will come within around 2.5 million miles of the Earth—a safe distance, albeit, relatively close in astronomical terms.

What it’s like to descend into one of the deepest caves on EarthFor decades, highly skilled cavers have come to Mexico to explore Cheve, a labyrinth within a mountain. I would like to communicate with the explorers and can't wait for the series I guess very important information thank you This is a very serious question if I could get a response please, all of the Orange is flattered on the walls is very important key to the fundamental communication of the unknown. Going there I'd be worried that my body would be infested by a disturbed ancient parasite which has been hiding there for millions of years.

The large space rock, dubbed 7335 (1989 JA), is estimated to measure around 5,900 feet across, figures from NASA's Center for Near Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) show. This estimate would mean you could fit roughly two of the world's tallest buildings—the Burj Khalifa in Dubai—across its length. According to NASA's figures, no other near-Earth object that is scheduled to make a close approach to the Earth in 2022 is as large as 1989 JA. Tell-tale signs, including the chemical makeup and patterning of the rock, suggest that the shards contain bits of the dust and gas cloud surrounding an Ia supernova. The asteroid is scheduled to make its close approach on May 27, when it will come within around 2.5 million miles of the Earth—a safe distance, albeit, relatively close in astronomical terms.

(Romano Serra) "In a sense, we could say, we have caught a supernova Ia explosion in the act, because the gas atoms from the explosion were caught in the surrounding dust cloud, which eventually formed Hypatia's parent body," says geochemist Jan Kramers from the University of Johannesburg in South Africa. A huge asteroid is set to fly past the Earth later this month, the largest to make a close approach this year, according to NASA. iStock As the asteroid flies past the Earth, it will be traveling at a staggering speed of around 47,200 miles per hour. This is around 20 times as fast as a rifle bullet, and about one fifth as fast as a bolt of lightning. Those clues included an unusually low level of silicon, chromium, and manganese, suggesting that the rock hadn't been formed in the inner Solar System. Among the other larger asteroids to have made a close approach to the Earth in 2022 include the space rock 7482 (1994 PC1)—which passed earlier this year and is thought to measure around 3,330 feet across.

These objects are known as near-Earth objects, or NEOs—a term used to refer to any astronomical body that passes within around 30 million miles of our planet's orbit. So far, more than 29,000 NEOs have been discovered, the majority of which are asteroids. Further analysis rules out the idea that the rock had formed from a red giant star . Most of these NEOs are also relatively small. Read more .
