Due to its enormous size, asteroid 2022 YS5 is particularly worrisome. According to NASA, this asteroid has a width of 130 feet, making it almost as large as an aeroplane. If it crashed, it might harm people and property, especially if it happened in a densely populated region.
Although an impact with Earth is not anticipated, a tiny change in the asteroid’s trajectory caused by the Earth’s gravitational attraction may send it racing in that direction. However, you shouldn’t be concerned because NASA has already put its planetary defence strategy to the test with the DART Mission, protecting the earth from wayward asteroids.
