It most certainly will. It has been struck several times by asteroids in the past, and it is practically inevitable that it will be struck by asteroids again in the future.

Theory suggests that it is a remnant of a large asteroid that struck the Earth





Yep. We should probably move to Mars.


No, an asteroid cannot destroy earth, but a large enough asteroid can have devastating effects on the life on Earth


According to most of the paleontologists, when an asteroid hit the Earth at Chicxulub, the dinosaurs were totally wiped off the face of the Earth and thus other life forms flourished.


Historically, an asteroid that struck the Earth 65 million years ago is one theory for the extinction of the dinosaurs, but that hit in Yucatan (Mexico).


Earth is inside the asteroid belt


What asteroid? There were several.


The earth is inside the asteroid belt.


No, if the Earth was destroyed by an asteroid we would not be living today.


An asteroid. This was not what killed the dinosaurs, though. The dinos were destroyed by erupting volcanoes which may or may not have been influenced by the asteroid.


The chances of an asteroid from the asteroid belt hitting Earth are very close to zero. The chances of a so-called "near Earth asteroid" hitting Earth are much higher... in fact, they hit Earth all the time, and are seen as meteors ("shooting stars").


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.


It is outside of the asteroid belt. That is to say it's not within the belt. However, sometimes we say the Earth is located "inside" the asteroid belt. By this we mean Earth is between the Sun and the asteroid belt.


An asteroid will hit the Earth, it is only a question of when. Astronomers are always tracking near earth asteroids, but we currently have no way to prevent an asteroid impact.


Yes. Earth is much larger tha even the largest asteroid.


Probably not. I haven't seen any news about an asteroid about to strike Earth.



It is inevitable that an asteroid will hit Earth eventually, but there are currently no known asteroids expected to hit Earth in our lifetimes.


Millions if not billions of years ago asteroids helped create the planets that are in our solar system today. The Earth probably could handle larger moons however our moon was a single large asteroid that struck the Earth. The Earth then took the asteroid as its satellite.


Could an asteroid destroy the planet completely? Very unlikely; impossible, in fact. If a very large asteroid struck the Earth at a high velocity, it could reshape the planet, but the planet itself would continue to exist, although in a very different form. Would life on the Earth survive? Perhaps not! Large masses have struck the Earth several times over the past 4 billion years, and life has been knocked back almost to the beginning at least a couple of times.


An asteroid could never travel from the Sun to the Earth.


Technically, if it hits the Earth it's not an "asteroid", it's a "meteorite". And yes, meteorites hit the Earth all the time.
