Don’t panic: there is no asteroid threatening Earth, says Nasa
There have been no asteroids or comets observed that would impact Earth anytime in the foreseeable future, Nasa has confirmed
Nasa has been forced to issue a statement confirming that there is no deadly asteroid threatening Earth after an internet rumour went viral sparking panic.
Recent web postings suggested a deadly space rock would crash into Peurto Rico between September 15 and September 28 causing widespread devastation to the Atlantic and Gulf coasts of the US, Mexico and Southern America.
But the US space agency said there was no asteroid scheduled to pass anywhere near Earth during those dates.
