Please read the expert panel story from JPL’s Don Yeomans, one of Earth’s greatest authorities on asteroid science. Don gives you the straight story on asteroid 2013 TX68, which originally showed a remote possibility of striking Earth, and the confusion and misinformation that has followed.

There’s so much poor quality stuff out in social media now that it’s important to get the real story from those who know. This blog will give it to you!
