ESA researchers discovered an asteroid in September, which could be dangerous in the short term. Now everything is clear.
Update November 8, 2019: Asteroid "2019 SU3" came shortly after it was discovered on September 23, 2019 on the so-called "Risk List", meaning the European Space Agency's hazard list (ESA)). Meanwhile, the asteroid is no longer listed. Even in a theoretically possible collision course in the year 2084, there is little danger, as the asteroid has a diameter of only about 15 meters. The current ESA risk list along with other items can be found here.

Munich – The European Space Agency (ESA) has discovered in the depths of space a new asteroid that could be dangerous to our planet. Astronomers have calculated exactly when the asteroid is near us – especially on September 16, 2084. This was first reported by the US portal International Business Times . The asteroid was discovered on September 23rd.
The potential threat posed by the "2019 SU3" is so good that ESA is currently ranked as one of the four most dangerous asteroids. He is currently ranked fourth on the "Forward List" and is closely watched by space researchers.
Asteroid "2019 SU3" – The probability of impact is 1:15
The probability of impact on our planet lies. according to the calculations in 1: 152. In other words, at 0.65 percent. According to the forecast, the asteroid will approach Earth up to 120,000 kilometers. By comparison, the distance between Earth and Moon is only 384,400 kilometers. It is not yet clear whether the asteroid is moving and just passing by.
It is also unclear whether there is life on Mars. A NASA researcher is sure about this and cites the clues.
The ESA's hazard list contains more than 900 asteroids – "2019 SU3" only one of them
A potential impact will have disastrous consequences for the earth, even if it is not about in a global catastrophe. But the asteroid will leave a huge ruin in the region.
The asteroid is 14 meters in diameter. A similar size, especially 20 meters, 2013 has an asteroid, which struck near the Russian metropolis Chelyabinsk. A shockwave struck across the region, killing 1,500 people and injuring thousands of buildings.
"2019 SU3" is just one of more than 900 asteroids on the ESA's hazard list. It includes the so-called asteroid "God of Chaos", named after an Egyptian god. He will also be seen with the naked eye as he approaches Earth. NASA Experts NASA.
In September, an asteroid twice the size of the Empire State Building passed Earth. For astronomers, it is a feast day, as it is a very rare event.
Again and again, asteroids fly at us, sometimes even a few. Like 17 kidney stones recently.
