Astronomy Science ~ Telescope robot Moscow University have discovered a potentially large asteroid hit Earth in the future. If the collision happens, will be 1,000 more powerful blasts of Chelyabinsk meteorite explosion in 2013.

Automated telescope mounted Caucasus Mountains, near the town of Kislovodsk first saw the asteroid. The space rock called 2014 UR116 and estimated diameter of 370 meters. The size is bigger than the famous asteroid Apophis.

When the Russian astronomers see new objects space, they split the data into his colleagues in the Minor Planet Center of the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory. That means many observatories around the world scrutinize the UR116 2014 and helped to calculate the initial orbit of the object. 2014 UR116 orbit is fluctuated as also passes close to Venus and Mars, and the gravitational pull of planets can also affect the trajectory of the asteroid.

When a meteorite exploded above the city of Chelyabinsk in February 2013, the energy of the explosion was estimated to be equivalent to 300-500 kilotons of TNT. But the relatively small Chelyabinsk meteorite, estimated to be only measuring 17 meters and exploded at an altitude of more than 20 kilometers.

The newly discovered asteroid is much larger, and if it hit our planet, it would be a disaster. If it hit Earth would produce a force 1,000 times more powerful than the Chelyabinsk meteorite.

But the good news is this asteroid poses no threat to Earth for at least six years in the future, said Victor Shor, from research associate at the Institute of Applied Astronomy when speaking to Interfax news agency.

Currently, the closest orbit of Earth in 2014 UR116 within 4.5 million kilometers. But its orbit will change, so scientists must continue to watch in 2014 UR116.

Network of robotic telescopes were discovered in 2014 UR116 called MASTER. Stands for Moscow State University and made with the cooperation of Russian universities in Yekaterinburg, Irkutsk, Blagoveschensk, Kislovodsk station of the Pulkovo Observatory and assistance from the National University of San Juan, Argentina.

MASTER has found two other potentially hazardous asteroids: 2013 UG1 SW24 and 2013, but they were smaller than in 2014 UR116, respectively 'only' measuring 250 and 125 meters.
