In True 2020 Fashion, Asteroid Could Smash into Earth Day Before Election

How fitting.

In a year like no other in modern history, it should come as no surprise that we are facing trouble not only here on planet earth, but from outer space as well.

For many Americans, there is a real fear surrounding the November election, as we continue to face the growing threats of domestic terrorism, civil unrest, and political violence.  The uncertainty about the reaction from supporters of both candidates has many Americans feeling as though they’re sitting atop a barrel of gunpowder.

Now, to make matters all the more dire, and to amp up the cynicism of the already jaded planet, there is a threat from deep space headed our direction just a day ahead of the fateful election.

A 6.5-foot asteroid will zoom past Earth just before Election Day but astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson says it’s nothing to worry about.

“Asteroid 2018VP1, a refrigerator-sized space-rock, is hurtling towards us at more than 40,000 km/hr. It may buzz-cut Earth on Nov 2, the day before the Presidential Election,” he said.

NASA has previously said it has a 0.41% chance of entering our atmosphere.

The popular scientist wasn’t entirely cheery about the prognosis for the planet, asteroid or not.

“It’s not big enough to cause harm. So if the World ends in 2020, it won’t be the fault of the Universe,” Tyson said.

That’s not terribly reassuring on a lot of levels, but at least the asteroid isn’t going to decimate us.
