I always wondered how I would die.
Fortunately it won't be by a meteor colliding with the earth.
NASA predicts an asteroid as wide as three olympic swimming pools is expected to pass Earth this afternoon by no more than 60,000km/h.
Despite the huge size of this "near-earth object" making a "close-approach" it won't really be anywhere near us - it's 13 times further away from the Earth than the Moon.
In other words, this "close-approach" is not as close as one would be led to believe.
This big space rock will be flying-by no closer than 5,105,776 kilometres and then peacefully passing on through the solar system.
Breathe easy, earthling; we will live to see another day.
