Latest on Asteroid 2011MD

Our calculations still have the close flyby of Asteroid 2011 MD at a distance of 18550 km from Earth’s atmosphere.

We saw the other day a comment where someone suggested that if the calculations were wrong and the asteroid then entered our atmosphere that there would be a big disaster.

As we mentioned in our last post, this is only a 10 meter wide asteroid so if in the unlikely scenario it did enter our atmosphere, it would burn up in the atmosphere long before it had a chance to reach the ground.
