There is no such prediction: it is not known when an asteroid will hit Earth. There are only some estimations, every how often asteroids up to a certain size will hit Earth, but no specific date.

the next asteroid is predicted in 2029


Currently there are no asteroids expected to hit Earth in the next 100 years.


As far as I know, there are no specific predictions. Some asteroids are predicted to pass nearby; the probability of any specific asteroid actually hitting Earth is quite small.


No asteroid collision is predicted. That's not the same as saying we have a guarantee that it won't happen. But nothing has been observed yet that's on a collision course with earth.


At the present time, no major asteroid is predicted to hit Earth. Asteroids with a diameter of about 5 -> 10 m hit the Earths atmosphere about once every year but are vaporised by the atmosphere with the power of a Hiroshima nuclear bomb. Calculating the path of an asteroid is a very tricky procedure and many have been "predicted" to hit - 2002 NT7 (Not too sure is NT7 is Windows 7!) was "predicted" to hit Earth in 2019 but after analysing it's trajectory with greater detail it was removed from the list of "objects presenting a threat".


in the next 768 years it is asteriod tenesa


Many thousands of objects hit the earth every day.It is not possible to predict when an asteroid, large enough to cause significant damage, will next hit the earth.There is no prediction about a specific date. Should any asteroid hit us during the next few centuries, it would come as a surprise. There are general predictions about probability; such as an asteroid above a certain size hitting every so-and-so often (on average).


an asteroid hit the dinosaur and killed them


the asteroid hit mars in 1824


no it wont next year we will still be here so we can not be deid next year we will be in shcool so no


No. Occasionally an asteroid is knocked out of the asteroid belt and some of those asteroids eventually hit Earth, but the asteroid belt as a whole will not hit us.


What asteroid? There were several.


Just to begin; an asteroid IS going to hit the Earth. We just don't know WHEN. Or how big. Or how fast. The Earth has been hit before - MANY times before - and unless we humans intercept it, another will hit us. Probably not this year or next, but sometime within the next 100,000 years, an asteroid WILL intercept the Earth's orbit. What will happen? That depends on how big it is, and how fast, and where it hits.


Answer Small Asteroids hit earth and burn up in the atmosphere almost ever year.There is no threat of a big one hitting Earth in this century. Answer The next asteroid is going to hit the earth either in 2009 going to 2012Its more likely to be in either 2009 or 2012


There are currently no asteroids that are predicted to hit the Earth. Nothing in the sky that is big enough to be visible is likely to hit us. However, astronomers frequently discover nearby objects that are very close indeed. in fact, last October, astronomers located a fairly small asteroid on a collision course with Earth - only 18 hours before it hit. That asteroid, a fairly small object about the size of a small house, exploded over the Sudan without causing any known damage or injury. And last month, astronomers discovered an asteroid that's in a "co-orbit" with the Earth, never very far away and moving in pretty much the same direction. The nearest thing to a "prediction" is the asteroid Apophis, which will come very close to Earth on Friday, April 13, 2029, and again on Friday, April 13, 2036. However, further analysis of the orbit of Apophis indicates that there is only one chance in 40,000 that it will hit.


no it was not an asteroid that hit the earth, it was kevins big mouth


The arrival of asteroids is unpredictable; it is doubtful that we would get more than a month's warning, and may be a big one will arrive in the next minute.No one can tell the exact day or time.


Well if you were watching the discovery channel 2 years ago it said that a scientist looked up into space and saw a asteroid heading our way and he predicted it will hit us in 10 years or so if that is true we only have 8 years until it hits. Oh I forgot it also said this asteroid looked bigger than Jupiter.


Scientists correctly predicted the impact in advance.


Yes. An asteroid probably hit Siberia, in Russia, in June 1908.


An asteroid might hit at any moment. There is no reason to believe that an asteroid will hit any time soon, though.


Can't prevent them but they are predicted by weather observations. This is called meteorology. Tornados can be predicted but what can't be predicted is how they move or where they will go next.


An asteroid is going too hit earth this weekend.


No, the world will not end next month. The fact that an asteroid will hit the Earth is just a (false) rumor.


Thousands of asteroids are being observed; some may come quite close to Earth within the next few hundred years. Right now, no specific date is known, for a specific asteroid to hit Earth.Thousands of asteroids are being observed; some may come quite close to Earth within the next few hundred years.
