Asteroid 2017 PDC is on a course that almost certainly will impact the Earth on July 21, 2027, less than 9 years from now
Big headline you may say but don't be alarmed it is just an apparent simulation of a test called asteroid 2017 PDC
The simulation model presented at the 2017 Planetary Defense Conference, Tokyo, Japan, tells us that the worst areas affected will be China then both North and South Korea Japan, and into the Pacific
Loss of life will be horrific when the Asteroid slams into the planet triggering tsunamis atmospheric pollution the size of which has never been seen before.
Authors note: Lets just hope this is indeed an exercise and not the real thing.
