Is it real or fake / hoax?
NASA said that there will be no asteroid that will hit earth next month September 2015 that gone viral online.
In the NASA release, Paul Chodas, manager of the Near-Earth Object office at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., said, “There is no scientific basis — not one shred of evidence — that an asteroid or any other celestial object will impact Earth on those dates.”
The danger of a collision with any of the known asteroids over the next century is less than one in 10,000, the space agency said.
This is not the first time a story of impending doom from outer space has circulated on the Internet, but this one persisted long enough to garner NASA attention.
“We’ve still been getting calls and getting emails, and September is coming up,” said D. C. Agle, a spokesman at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. “Some of these things just have a life of their own, so it seemed like a good idea to put out a release.” - nytimes.com
