2020 has been lit.

NASA confirms that an asteroid will zoom by Earth this Saturday. Luckily, we will be spared by the colossal of a comet.

Here are some nerdy facts about this non-potentially dangerous (never say never) asteroid.

With 2020 being as crazy and horrible as it is, why not throw a asteroid into the mix? Not a bad idea.

While it is unlikely for an asteroid to hit Earth anytime soon, one of these huge asteroids can destroy a whole city if it made contact with it. Back in 2013, Russia had a incredible meteor smack it's surface living 1500 injured and leaving a giant hole in a icy lake.

Here is video of that contact:

 

Scary stuff amiright?

I know 2020 seems like the end of the world, but it isn't. This year has shown us how to be tough, resilient and most of all how to love people on a whole different level. Life is going to throw us curve-balls but now we are living through 2020, it's going to be that much easier. Hang in there, 2020 only has 6 more months left
