An asteroid of enormous dimensions, the size of the square Colosseum, or the Palazzo della Civilta Italiana, which is a huge building located in Rome, will completely wipe the Earth on Monday, March 27, at a speed of 32,000 km / h.
The orb in question is 2023 DZD 2which was seen on February 27, 2023 fromRoque de los Muchachos Observatory On the island of La Palma, in the Canary Islands, thanks to Isaac Newton’s telescopes.

Initially, the scientists estimated that the probability of this second move affecting it was 1 in 621, a risk that should not be underestimated.
The latest data from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory’s Center for Near-Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) suggests there is only a 0.0014 percent chance of a collision, or about 1 in 71,000.
