A series of online predictions that an asteroid will hit Puerto Rico on September 23, 2015 have caused so much alarm that both NASA and astronomical societies in Britain have issued statements urging people to be calm.
Paul Chodas of NASA’s Near-Earth Object office said “There is no existing evidence that an asteroid or any other celestial object is on a trajectory that will impact Earth. In fact, not a single one of the known objects has any credible chance of hitting our planet over the next century.”
The story began when the Rev Efrain Rodriguez claimed to have received a divine vision of a gigantic asteroid colliding with Earth. The space rock in his vision was 2.5 miles wide and will hit the Earth near Puerto Rico, causing a 300 foot tsunami and “magnitude 12” earthquake. Up to 30 million people will be killed by the impact. According to the vision, 40 million more will die from “plagues and civil disorder” in the following months.
Many other theories have also emerged claiming the end is near. Please watch our other videos.
