Yep, Dr. Joseph Nuth of NASA's Goddard Space Flight announced an “extinction-level” event, like the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs, may soon be coming from outer space.
Since Nuth's terrifying prediction clearly wasn't pessimistic enough, he also pointed out, “The biggest problem, basically, is there's not a hell of a lot we can do about it at the moment.”
If you haven't been living out every day like it's your last since Nuth's foreboding forecast of the future, you might want to start soon. It appears that doomsday might be coming a bit sooner than you initially thought.
NASA has predicted that a mysterious object, thought to be an asteroid or a comet, will be passing by Earth on February 25 and missing the planet by a distance of 32 million miles.
However, a self-proclaimed astronomer from Russia, Dr. Dyomin Damir Zakharovich, has a different theory of what will happen when this mysterious object, named 2016 WF9, approaches Earth.
Rather than safely whizzing by, Zakharovich believes the asteroid will collide with our planet and result in a mega-tsunami.
That's right. Zakharovich is saying that this catastrophic object is heading straight for our precious planet.
According to Zakharovich,
Zakharovich believes "we are all in peril" because such an asteroid strike could obliterate cities or cause massive tsunamis.
Although Zakharovich is alleging NASA knows about this doomsday asteroid, NASA has refuted his hypothesis and is sticking by its prediction that the object will pass our planet, leaving it unscathed.
According to NASA,
Based on research, NASA has discovered that 2016 WF9 is a dark object that is pretty large, measuring somewhere between 0.3 to 0.6 miles across.
While the object appears to resemble a comet, as far as its reflectivity and orbit are concerned, scientist say the object doesn't have the signature dust and gas cloud that defines a comet.
Once again, Dr. Zakharovich's "data" paints a different picture of the object, alleging it is a comet or asteroid that initially came from a fictional planet called Nibiru.
Dr. Zakharovich stated,
Nibiru, also known as Planet X, is a theoretical planet proposed to exists on the edge of the solar system. According to NASA,
Let's just hope NASA is right.
