NASA SEES A ZOO IN SPACE

NASA has turned into a zoo. Or, it is totally wacko, that's also possible. .


"Corgi-sized meteor as heavy as 4 baby elephants hits Texas - NASA

A meteor the size of a Pembroke Welsh Corgi and weighing about the total weight of four baby elephants struck near McAllen, Texas, last Wednesday ( 15.02 ), NASA confirmed this week.

The meteor strike, reported by local Fox broadcaster KDFW, took place last Wednesday around 6pm local time, with some eyewitnesses seeing a possible meteor impact in the sky at that time.

This was later confirmed by the National Weather Service, which said a Geostationary Lightning Mapper saw the flash of a meteor just half an hour earlier. At that time, it was not clear what caused the flash, especially since there was no thunderstorm in the area that could have caused the flash.

Security camera footage obtained by KDFW appeared to have captured an apparent sonic bang, with the loud sound sending birds fleeing, while many residents claimed to have felt a possible earthquake.


" Asteroid the size of 14 flamingos skims past Earth on Wednesday - NASA

Asteroid 2023 DJ1 is about 14 metres wide, and flamingos can grow as tall as 1.4 metres. But those amazing birds are more dangerous because this asteroid will not hit us.

An asteroid about the size of 14 flamingos flying from foot to beak will skim past Earth on Wednesday, March 1, according to NASA's asteroid tracker.

The asteroid in question has been designated 2023 DJ1, according to the Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).

The asteroid in question is small and in no danger of hitting Earth.

To put this size in perspective, flamingos, the pink and fabulously social birds, can grow as tall as 1.4 metres. This means that asteroid 2023 DJ1 is about the size of 14 flamingos, flying together foot by foot."


"Huge asteroid the size of 16 humpback whales passes Earth Friday - NASA

It was feared that the huge asteroid 367789 (2011 AG5) could impact Earth between 2040 and 2047, but later NASA calculations found that unlikely.

A large asteroid, about the size of 16 adult humpback whales, will pass Earth on Friday, according to NASA's asteroid tracker.

The asteroid in question has been named 367789 (2011 AG5), according to the Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).

This asteroid in question is considered potentially dangerous and it was feared that it could impact Earth sometime between 2040 and 2047, although subsequent observations showed this to be highly unlikely.

or context, the average adult humpback whale is as long as 16 metres. This means that the asteroid could be as much as slightly less than 16 humpbacks long, if stretched from mouth to tail.

The average humpback whale has a swimming speed of about 27 kilometres per hour.

Asteroid 367789 (2011 AG5), however, is coming through space towards Earth at a speed of about 9.92 kilometres per second, or 35,712 kilometres per hour. In other words, it is about 1,322 times faster than a humpback whale."


"2 asteroids the size of 100 pugs pass Earth on Tuesday - NASA

Both asteroids 2019 BO2 and 2019 BZ4 are about 36 metres in diameter, which means 100 pugs. But it won't hit us - pugs are more likely.

Two asteroids about the size of 100 adult pugs will be heading towards Earth this Tuesday, according to NASA's asteroid tracker.

The asteroids in question have been named 2019 BO2 and 2019 BZ4, according to the Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).

As mentioned, both asteroids have a diameter that is at most about 100 pugs wide, assuming those pugs are stacked on top of each other, with their legs on their shoulders, forming a kind of cute squeaky tower of pugs."

" 2 asteroids the size of 22 penguins pass Earth this weekend - NASA

Both asteroids 2023 AT and 2023 AE1 are as much as 22 metres wide, or 22 emperor penguins. However, they will not hit us - penguins are more likely.

Two small asteroids, each about the size of 22 emperor penguins from nose to toes, will fly past Earth this weekend.

The asteroids in question have been named 2023 AT and 2023 AE1, according to the Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).

Moreover, as their names suggest, both asteroids were discovered relatively recently: they were both discovered and designated by scientists within the first 15 days of the new year."


And it gets even crazier. They also see Oscar prizes flying in space
