(INTELLIHUB) — Astronomers say a comet up to two-hundred and thirty miles in diameter is headed our way at speed above 10,500 miles per hour on a highly inclined path. The International Astronomical Union’s Minor Planet Center announced last Saturday updates on the object dubbed 2014 UN271, saying that the object is unpredictable.
The object’s expected arrival into our inner solar system coincides with the action-packed documentary film Shackled To Silence, produced by Intellihub’s Shepard Ambellas. The one-of-a-kind film brilliantly lays out a case for how COVID-19 might be a guise to usher in further lockdowns as an extinction-level event approaches.
Meg Schwamb, a planetary scientist at Queens University, says that we should expect “fireworks” as the comet comes in.
“Comets are like cats,” she told Gizmodo. “You never know what they’re going to do.”
It could break up, she explained.
Scientists and astronomers are currently trying to learn more about the fastly approaching comet.
A construction request put out by a U.K. government agency reveals authorities are gearing up for a mass casualty event. Still, it’s not known if the event is connected to the comet. The six-year “contingency contract” offered by Westminster City Council is for the construction of a “temporary body storage facility to house deceased in the event of an excessive death situation.” The contract covers the “32 London boroughs and the City of London.” It has an estimated value of £6,000,000 and is expected to be completed within a six-month timeframe.
