No, an asteroid is not going to hit Earth the day before the US election

It was NASA that sounded the alarm. During the first days of November, the race ofan asteroid will probably come into conflict with the trajectory of the Earth. But no reason to worry, the asteroid 2018VP1 is very small and only has a 1 in 240 chance of hitting us.

November 2, a coincidence? Some voters will see it as a symbol of fate, but it is not. Indeed, the Center for Near Earth Objects Studies, a NASA research laboratory explained that “the asteroid 2018VP1 is very small, approximately 6.5 feet (editor’s note: 2 meters) and poses no threat to Earth. It currently has a 0.41% chance of entering our planet’s atmosphere, but if it did, it disintegrates due to its extremely size ”.

So, Free Midi specifies that the asteroid has a good chance of fall apart and turn into a shooting star, because with a size of only 2 meters by 91 centimeters for fifteen kilos, it is not likely to be able to withstand entry into the atmosphere.
