She assured that he would pass safely and there was no danger of colliding with her

Engineer Majid Abu Zahra, president of the Astronomical Society in Jeddah, confirmed that a newly discovered small asteroid will pass near planet Earth on Saturday April 10, 2021, called (2021 GT3), and its diameter is 20 meters.

He indicated that the asteroid is moving at a speed of 24.4 kilometers per second, and will fall at a distance of 104.718.509 kilometers. This means that it will pass safely, and there is no danger of it colliding with our planet, and it will not be seen with the naked eye.

He explained that the asteroid (2021 GT3) the size of the asteroid itself that penetrated the skies of Russia in February 2013, and disintegrated at a low altitude, and released from it very high energy, which caused a shock wave resulting from the explosion in the sky, which led to the shattering of building glass, and human injuries due to flying glass. Small pieces of that space rock reach the Earth’s surface in the form of meteorites.

He added: “Small asteroids that approach the Earth are likely to be affected by the Earth’s orbit, an effect called (gravity assist), and space agencies use it to help propel spacecraft to different places in our solar system.”

He indicated that he would take advantage of such opportunities to learn more about asteroids, such as the nature of their formation. These bodies, like a time machine, are remnants of the formation of our solar system, and they keep many secrets of that era, and they can tell us more about the origin of our planet.

He pointed out that monitoring the movement of the asteroid is an excellent opportunity to test international capabilities to detect and track near-Earth objects, and to assess our ability to respond together to any real threat in the future.
