"In October 2022, a half-mile-wide asteroid called Didymos will approach Earth. The killer asteroid will be accompanied by its 500-foot-wide moon, which will be orbiting it. Given the huge size of Didymos and its moon, ground-based telescopes will be able to detect the asteroid very soon. They will also be able to detect the durational changes in its orbit around the larger asteroid to measure the effects of the impact."

Should we be alarmed about this asteroid or will it just be another near miss? And when is the next life altering/ending asteroid coming?
"Many a times immoral asteroids have been an object of fear and trepidation for people on Earth. Hence, when NASA was formed in 1952, watching over and tracking the movement of Asteroids was one of its major goals. In keeping with that goal, today, NASA is tracking the course of several hundreds of asteroids that could potentially be hazardous to human life on Earth.
The space agency has deployed specific Asteroid watching satellites and maintains a record of their course and with the help of NASA Asteroid watch data on its official website. The asteroid watching widget on NASA’s JPL website is showing two asteroids which are scheduled flyby close to Earth on Wednesday, September 23. Here is what we know about Asteroids 2020 RE8 & 2020 RA2."

The Humans will not go that easy. With the nuclear capabilities and travels into space, That asteroid got no chance of hitting our planet. We will not go out, without a fight.
The first step to stopping an asteroid is finding the asteroid. There are endless asteroids that hit earth daily, and many, if not most of them are undetected until they enter our atmosphere. The answer is not "if", the answer is "when" will we get hit by a life altering asteroid. The clock is ticking for that for that fateful day.
