The "potentially dangerous" Astroid believed to hide the alien life is fighting the Earth. NASA's NASA has calculated that there is a chance that the asteroid, known as Bennu, will penetrate our planet in the next century, ending life on Earth as we know it. And recently published photos showed the most elaborate views of the unusual form of "asteroid apocalypse".
NASA's spacecraft OSIRIS-REx running for Bennu has captured incredibly detailed footage of a deadly space rock far more than 1.4 billion miles.
OSIRIS-REX has been circling around Bennu since the beginning of 2019, trying to learn more about asteroids.
At a distance of just 500 meters in length, Bennu is the smallest object ever circled by artificial satellite.
The latest series of images was taken when OSIRIS-REx was only one kilometer above the Bennu surface.

The Osiris-REx Twitter account said: "As I travel around Bennu during Orbital A, my scientific camera does not collect data.
"But my NavCam 1 recorder uses optical navigation images like these to help track my path around the asteroids."
Two years ago, OSIRIS-REx fled the Earth to a mission to study and return to Bennu's model in 2023.
OSIRIS-REX will orchestrate Bennu by the end of the year before approaching close enough to take a rock pattern from the asteroid surface.

The mission goal of OSIRIS-REx is to return the regular 2.1-gram sample.
The OSIRIS-REx Twitter account added: "For those at home I traveled just under 1.4 billion miles (2.2 billion km) away from leaving home in September 2016.
"I'll stay in orbit around Bennu by the end of February when I start a series of leaflets for detailed research."
It is believed that the asteroid Benn rocks rich in carbon that potentially contains another organic matter.
NASA's statement explains: "A sample analysis from Bennu will help planetary scientists to better understand the role of asteroids in delivering compounds that create life on Earth.

"We know we've been studying Bennu through terrestrial and space telescopes that it is a carbon or rich carbon asteroid. Carbon is a lump on which organic molecules lie.
"Benn is probably rich in organic molecules, which are made from carbon chains linked to the atoms of oxygen, hydrogen and other elements in the chemical recipe that makes all known living beings.
"Apart from carbon, Benn could have another important component for life: water trapped in minerals that make the asteroid."
The Space Probe took a big plan using the NavCam 1 navigation camera, which is used to track the Bennu's orbit.
