An asteroid twice the size of Big Ben could break into the ground with a nuclear weapon, according to NASA.

The rock – dubbed 2018 LF16 – is a giant 700ft and predicted that we could meet our planet on August 8, 2023.

But fortunately, the impact is very unlikely because NASA also predicts that there's only a 30 million chance that it will happen.

The stone obviously has 62 different potential battlefields with the earth in the next century.

Other potential dates when the asteroid could hit falls on August 3, 2024 and August 1, 2025.

On the Torino Impact Hazard Scale, this particular asteroid ranks as a level of "zero" threat, which means that the risk of its collision with the ground is non-existent or near non-existent.

But the US Space Agency continues to keep an eye on this space rock.

If an asteroid crashes into the ground, it can cause widespread destruction.

An object that is so large would have a power of 50 Megatons – corresponding tsar Bomba core device.

A much smaller asteroid hit the Chelyabinsk Oblast in Russia in 2013 and injured 1,000 people with crushed glass caused by the asteroid that exploded in the sky.

Asteroids – or "Near Earth Objects" (as NASA likes to call them) – regularly across the globe, with their frequency placing them somewhere between week and daily events.

Earlier this month, three asteroids smashed over the ground in rapid succession

"When they circle the sun, objects near the Earth can sometimes approach the Earth," explains NASA.
