This could be the last story I ever compose, on the off chance that one paranoid fear circling on the web is to be accepted.

Toward the end of last year word started to spread that an as of late spotted expansive space rock, 2016 WF9, will crush into Earth as ahead of schedule as February 16, setting off a tidal wave or pulverizing whole urban communities.


In any case, NASA says the space shake’s nearest way to deal with Earth will occur on February 25 at a separation of about 32 million miles (51 million kilometers).

“This pass won’t bring it especially shut,” the space office said in an announcement in late December. “The direction of 2016 WF9 is surely knew, and the protest is not a danger to Earth for years to come.”

Some more questionable corners of the web, be that as it may, demand NASA is lying about the way of the space rock and its whole-world destroying direction. They usually refer to a Russian space expert, or “Nibiru shriek blower,” named Dyomin Damir Zakharovich who says the legislature is concealing a bigger trick to shroud reality of a shrouded planet Nibiru, one of the web’s unique fake news stories.

Issue is, there’s about as much certain proof that Zakharovich exists as there is for the presence of Nibiru. That is to state, it’s confined to some exceptionally crude sources. A significant part of the present prattle around 2016 WF9 that worked its way into standard newspaper outlets can be followed back to a site that quotes Zakharovich as guaranteeing the space rock was really flung off of Nibiru and anticipating it will hit New York state on Thursday.

A similar site seems to utilize a tick goad methodology of taking whatever news story is ruling features at a given minute and associating it to the Nibiru paranoid notion.

Additionally, stargazers aren’t known to foresee precisely where space rocks or meteors may hit Earth since there’s no real way to tell how any protest may wreck in the air.

So breathe a sigh of relief and monitor yourself against the fake news attack, which is significantly more prone to do genuine harm to our reality than a space rock this month.
