Scientists from the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) have announced that NASA made a crucial miscalculation in their prediction that asteroid 2013 TV135 will miss Earth.
Lead scientist Yoheshu Kaiwi explained that NASA scientists “failed to account for Earth’s gravitational wobbling”. When this wobbling is factored in, the asteroid is on a direct collision course with Earth.
Dr. Kaiwi graciously explained how the error could occur, “NASA scientists are under constant financial constraints, and the organization really doesn’t have the money to perform such complicated prediction experiments. The Japanese equivalent, JAXA, is much more respected and supported by the Japanese government. Therefore, we really receive the financial support that enables us to correctly make these predictions.”
Dr. Kaiwa ended his announcement on a grave note, “The size of this asteroid will cause great damage to Earth when it collides. We cannot imagine the catastrophe. It will strike with a force greater than 10,000 Godzillas.”
