So-Called 'Rubber Duck Asteroid' Spotted in Space

posted by C-Lane -

NASA says this rubber-duck-shaped asteroid could do SERIOUS DAMAGE if it hits Earth..... but also, it probably won't.

It's not the kind of rubber ducky you'd want in your bath, but the oblong, odd-shaped nucleus of Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko is creating chatter after scientists at NASA wrote it looked like a "lopsided peanut or a rubber ducky."

While NASA and other space agencies are more focused on the idea that the comet could have picked up some organic life along the way, the REAL scary verbiage comes when they describe that if the rock hit London, it would explode with the force of 3,000 megatons, wipe out the city, and engulf the south in a fireball, killing millions.

Luckily, it's not set to do so...
