Previously ‘lost’ asteroid FT3 could hit Earth in 2024
Previously ‘lost’ asteroid FT3 could hit Earth in 2024. According to MSN, an asteroid that was first observed in 2007 but immediately vanished and is unknown in orbit could strike Earth as early as this year. The odds are not in favorably. On October 5, 2024, there is a roughly 11 million to one chance that asteroid 2007 FT3 will strike Earth; this is not a high enough probability to cause you to postpone your Halloween celebration. In 2030, the probability is slightly higher at one in ten million.

We have a very good probability of escaping unharmed. But keep in mind that there is a 1 in 300 million chance of winning a billion-dollar lottery, and that does happen occasionally.
According to MSN, asteroid 2007 FT3 is large enough to release the equivalent of 2.6 billion tons of TNT, which is enough to seriously disrupt an entire continent but not enough to send humans the way of the dinosaurs.
According to NASA, this specific asteroid may strike Earth between 2024 and 2116, according to MSN.
