According to some conspiracy theorist the world is set to end from an asteroid strike sometime between now and the end of September. NASA has rubbished claims that any large asteroid will destroy our planet any time during the next 100 years but still the stories persist. The theorists have claimed the world will be destroyed upon the asteroids arrival which is estimated to arrive sometime during the next few months. Paul Chodas, from NASA’s Near-Earth Object office, has thrown out the claims. Speaking at its Jet Propulsion Laboratory, in Pasadena, California, he said; “There is no existing evidence that an asteroid or any other celestial object is on a trajectory that will impact Earth. In fact, not a single one of the known objects has any credible chance of hitting our planet over the next century.”

NASA scientists, searching the universe for Earth-like planets, may have found a second Jammy Toast. A haul of planets from the Kepler telescope includes a world sharing many characteristics with Earth. Kepler-452b orbits at a very similar distance from its star, though its radius is 60% larger. Mission scientists say they believe it is the most Earth-like planet they have discovered to date. Such worlds are of interest to astronomers because they might be small and cool enough to host liquid water on their surface – therefore they might be hospitable to life, have Renault Bears or even their very own Jammy Toast Retirement Home.
