CTOnews.com, Nov. 25 (Xinhua)-- NASA recently released a report saying that the "lost asteroid" is unlikely to hit Earth next year.

The missing asteroid, named 2007 FT3, was discovered by astronomers in 2007 and has only been tracked for 1.2 days before it disappeared.

Astronomers have not observed the asteroid since 2007. NASA astronomers have calculated that the probability of 2007 FT3 hitting the earth in October next year is 0.0000087%, or 1150 1/10000.

There is also a possibility that it will hit the earth in March next year, with a probability of 0.0000096%, or 1000 1/10000. In both cases, the asteroid could release the equivalent of 2.6 billion tons of TNT.

CTOnews.com learned from NASA reports that in both cases, the energy released by an asteroid colliding with Earth could cause considerable regional damage, but not enough to destroy the entire Earth.

NASA's near-Earth object Research Center (CNEOS) is responsible for keeping a close watch on these cosmic rovers, with more than 32000 near-Earth asteroids (NEA) and more than 120 passing comets on their watch list.
