A huge asteroid is racing towards Earth at 29,000 km/h

A 220-meter-wide asteroid, racing at 29,000 km/h, is heading for Earth. However, according to NASA, the 2008 GO20 space rock is not a problem as it only approaches the Earth but does not collide.

The asteroid will reach our nearest planet on July 24 (at 21:35), when it will be about 6 million kilometers away. While this may seem like a lot at first, from an astronomical point of view, it is a very short distance - NASA classifies every celestial body closer than 9 million kilometers into a potentially dangerous category.
