“There are no known [sizable] asteroids on a collision course with Earth for the foreseeable future. NASA always makes information about NEOs available at cneos.jpl.nasa.gov/sentry, said Nancy Chabot, a planetary scientist at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory.

According to abundant geological evidence, an asteroid roughly 10 km (6 miles) across hit Earth about 65 million years ago.

Asteroid is a 1997 NBC TV miniseries about the United States government trying to prevent an asteroid from colliding with the Earth.

An asteroid the size of the Eiffel Tower is headed toward Earth on Dec. 11, per Forbes. This asteroid is “potentially hazardous” due to its size and proximity to Earth. The asteroid, called 4660 Nereus, originally discovered in 1982, is about 390 feet long and shaped like an egg.
