geotechical soil classified article A new asteroid is expected to break into two parts, leaving behind an even bigger crater than the one that broke into pieces earlier this month.
The asteroid, dubbed 2014 MU69, will likely make a crater about the size of New York City, with the area of impact expected to extend more than 2,000 miles (4,000 kilometers) and will be about 200 times larger than the asteroid that hit Russia in October.
The two fragments are expected to be much larger than 2014 MU67, which was about the same size.
This asteroid will be the biggest to be named after the asteroid belt.
The asteroid that broke apart in October is a bit smaller.NASA says it’s possible the new asteroid could be bigger than the size that exploded in October in the Russian space station module.
The impact was caused by a fragment of the asteroid 2013 PY101 that broke up in a collision with an orbiting spacecraft.
