Guys do you remember the movie, Armageddon? The American fiction movie that is about a huge asteroid discovered by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), approaching the earth and they have to send out Bruce Willis (played Harry) and his drilling team to go fix the situation out of space before it destroys the earth?
Well, its like it going to happen in reality. This is because I just learnt from National Geographical News that a giant asteroid, Toutatis, is approaching (or has approached Earth and that it's set to land this week (today to be precise). Where it's going to land? Neither me nor them have any idea. Is it serious? Well, I haven't heard any announcement for people to be on their guard.
I don't know if people were sent out to go and take care of the situation (crazy,right?!) but as of now I haven't seen or heard anything weird, so I can assume it has been taken care of (or not). What do you think? Do you care if an unknown object falls into the earth?
