Huge Asteroid to Hit Earth In 2019, Said NASA Before Changing It 4 Days Later

Shockingly a massive 1.2 mile diameter asteroid named (89959) 2002 NT7 was in fact assigned a positive impact rating on the Palermo Technical Impact Hazard Scale, meaning that the object will likely strike earth on some future date.

In fact a press release written by Don Yeomans of NASA, published July 24, 2002, concluded the object’s “low-probability of earth impact in 2019.”

To make matters worse Yeomans also determined that (89959) 2002 NT7 is such a new discovery that “the limited number of observations available do not allow its trajectory to be tightly constrained and the object’s very uncertain future motion often allows a very low probability of an Earth impact at some future date. Just such a low probability impact has been identified for February 1, 2019 and a few subsequent dates.”

Needless to say the press release caused waves that rippled throughout the general populace before being squashed some 4 days later by NASA’s Don Yeomans in a new release titled Asteroid 2002 NT7: Potential Earth Impact In 2019 Ruled Out.
