This morning a previously undiscovered asteroid entered the Earth’s atmosphere above the Pacific Ocean and slammed into the water at approximately 6:04 a.m., creating a tidal wave hundreds of feet high. It smashed into Japan earlier this morning and experts expect the monstrous wave to reach California at any moment where it will surely cause indescribable damage.
This disaster didn’t actually happen, but it does describe a cataclysmic event that could end life as we know it and NASA says it’s only a matter of time before a killer asteroid like this one comes calling.
Hundreds of asteroids fly by Earth every day, and although NASA has spent millions of dollars trying to track all the space rocks near our planet, the agency admits it hasn’t found them all.
One previously undiscovered asteroid entered the Earth’s atmosphere February 15, 2013, and exploded in the skies above the Russian city of Chelyabinsk injuring thousands.
