Time for everybody to panic! According to The Sun, based in the U.K., a giant asteroid could be on course to hit Earth, causing massive devastation. An international team, including NASA experts, say a 560-meter wide space rock has been discovered heading this way.
They say the odds of it hitting Earth are about one-in-one thousand. In cosmic terms, they say these odds are high enough for the threat to be taken extremely seriously.
Now before you go running for the hills in a panic, I should probably mention that scientists have 172 years to work out how to deal with it.
That's right - it if does hit, it's not likely to do so until the year 2182. I don't know about you, but I'm planning to be dead by then.
