Scientists spot 10,000th average near-Earth asteroid in planetary protection milestone

Scientists observing the sky for asteroids that could threaten Earth have reached a new milestone, discovering the 10,000th largest space rock surrounding the sun near Earth’s orbit.

The discovery is part of NASA’s ongoing planetary protection work, which aims to detect and monitor space rocks in the inner solar system to ensure that there are no small planet to influence the Earth, of course. (To date, scientists are not aware of any space rocks that pose a serious threat to Earth in the near future.)
