  1. Asteroid 2012 TC4 – a celestial body measuring from 12 to 40 meters across, will pass near Earth on October 12, 2017 and, hypothetically, may collide with our planet. Data on the asteroid 2012 TC4 was obtained in 2012, when it last passed by our planet. For comparison, astronomers cite the Chelyabinsk meteorite, which fell in February 2013. Then up to 1,500 people were injured, and the shock wave damaged about 7,000 buildings in the city. This celestial visitor was 20 meters across, and the new threat could be twice as dangerous. At the same time, scientists say that although the threat of a collision is real, there are no serious reasons for panic.
