NASA has been forced to address radical claims about a giant asteroid that will soon destroy humanity and stated that there will be no “asteroid apocalypse” in September.

America’s space agency was spurned to speak up following the high volumes of babble about an end of the world scheduled this September, the Mirror has reported.

The space agency has released a statement that read: “NASA knows of no asteroid or comet currently on a collision course with Earth, so the probability of a major collision is quite small. In fact, as best as we can tell, no large object is likely to strike the Earth any time in the next several hundred years.”

An online community of end-of-time bloggers had speculated that a huge asteroid would hit the Earth sometime between September 22 and 28 and would wipe out civilisation.

Meanwhile biblical theorists were anticipating the asteroid would trigger the Rapture and the start of a seven-year tribulation.
