NASA tests planetary defense spacecraft to divert asteroid’s path
Apocalyptic predictions are plentiful as 2022 draws closer every day, despite their limited evidence. Figures throughout history have cast their prophecies on events that claim to be the beginning of the end of the world. Nostradamus, although he does not predict entirely apocalyptic events, is perhaps one of the most famous “seers” in the world. When specifically distorted, many of his “predictions” appear to have come true – the death of Henri II of France in 1559, the Great Fire of London in 1666, the emergence of Adolf Hitler, the bombings. Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the assassination of US President John F Kennedy.
Some have widely claimed that one of his predictions would spell disaster for Earth in 2022 from an asteroid collision.
It is difficult to determine what exact dates Nostradamus is talking about, however, because his 942 poetic quatrains in, ‘The Prophecies‘, are based on astrological movements.
Yet Nostradamus described a “celestial stone” falling to Earth, followed by a “great fire”.
Some believe that this reference to “fire” falling from the sky might actually be a nod to a climate catastrophe, like a deadly wildfire.

One of his poems said: “Like the sun, the head will burn the shining sea:
“The living fish of the Black Sea will only boil,
âWhen Rhodes and Genoa,
“Half-hungry will be,
“The local people to cut them up will work hard.”
Nostradamus isn’t the only one suggesting that an asteroid will someday crush Earth.

the International Messiah Foundation was founded in 1980 to promote the Goharan philosophy of divine love, which claims to be a syncretic fulfillment of Christian, Muslim, Jewish and Hindu prophecies.
Its creator, Riaz Ahmed Gohar Shahi, has been described as the messianic figure of many religions, under the title of Mehdi, Messiah and Kalki Avatar.
After writing a number of books on spirituality, in 2000 he published âThe Religion of Godâ, which was well received in spiritual circles.
In the book, Shahi predicts that the world will end in 2026 when an asteroid collides with Earth.

Exploring the prediction in 2015, The Independent wrote, âThe only hope for humanity is Shahi himself, unsurprisingly – if you recognize his image around, especially in the moon, you’ll be fine.
According to the Foundation’s website, 2026: âImages of the Lord Jesus Christ and His Sublime Eminence Ra Riaz Gohar Shahi (the expected Imam Mehdi, the expected Messiah and Avatar Kalki) are clearly visible on these heavenly bodies and earthly, and are capable of performing many miracles. . “
However, just a year after the book’s publication, Shahi disappeared in London.
To be clear, there is currently no known threat of an asteroid colliding with Earth in the next century.
Nearly avoided: dozens of near-Earth objects pass through Earth every month
NASA constantly monitors the cosmos, classifying all near-Earth objects (NEOs) as potentially dangerous objects (PHOs) if they can pose a threat to life on Earth.
And experts at the Planetary Defense Conference have been running exercises for years if an asteroid is heading toward Earth.
Occasionally, asteroids can also make “close approaches” to Earth, but that does not mean they will strike.
Doomsday: Organizations like NASA have systems in place that can detect and deter asteroids from Earth
NASA previously said: âWhen orbiting the Sun, near-Earth objects can sometimes come close to the Earth.
“Note that a ‘near’ passage can be very far in human terms: millions or even tens of millions of kilometers.”
Most of these objects fly far from Earth, and NASA traces their orbits hundreds of years in advance.
