NASA has confirmed that a massive asteroid will zoom past Earth tomorrow, but reassured the world that it is not a threat.
The space agency has spent the past few months debunking claims that a “doomsday space rock” will wipe out humanity this month.
Now it has confirmed the 270-metre Asteroid 2012 TT5 will speed past the planet tomorrow and insisted our species will live to fight another day.
Despite NASA’s reassuring words, conspiracy theorists claim humanity’s final hours could come between 22 and 28 September.
However, Nasa has given us the all-clear.
A spokesperson said: “NASA knows of no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth, so the probability of a major collision is quite small.”
Imaginative conspiracy theorists have also claimed the Large Hadron Collider could attract a giant asteroid towards Earth.
