Asteroid Bennu Impact Hazard: Animations

On September 25, 2135, an asteroid called Bennu will make a close flyby of Earth. Our planet’s gravity will tweak Bennu’s path, making it a challenge to calculate its future trajectory and the odds of a potential impact late in the 22nd century. This media resource page provides broadcast-quality animations related to asteroid Bennu’s impact hazard. Learn more from NASA.
