NASA recently spotted two objects hurling towards Earth, one a comet and the other a UFO.
The American space agency has identified one of the objects as a comet but is yet to classify the other, saying that it could be an asteroid or a comet.
The comet, dubbed C/2016, was determined in October 2016; and the mysterious object, dubbed 2016 WF9, was identified in November 2016.
The strange object is roughly 0.3 to 0.6 miles across and is in an orbit that takes it on a scenic tour of our solar system.
“The biggest problem, basically, is there’s not a hell of a lot we can do about it at the moment,” said Dr Joseph Nuth, a researcher with Nasa’s Goddard Space Flight Center.
Nuth also stated, at the annual meeting of American Geophysical Union, that dangerous asteroids or comets are extremely rare, “But on the other hand they are the extinction-level events, things like dinosaur killers, they’re 50 to 60 million years apart, essentially. You could say, of course, we’re due, but it’s a random course at that point.”
Nuth alongside other NASA scientists suggests the US build an interceptor rocket because often it can take up to five years to launch a spacecraft.
“If you look at the schedule for high-reliability spacecraft and launching them, it takes five years to launch a spacecraft. We had 22 months of total warning.”
