Researchers from the University of Hawaii have warned that an asteroid dubbed the ‘God of Chaos’ could smash into Earth in 2068.

The asteroid, officially called Apophis, is estimated to measure 340 metres in diameter. That means the space rock could be even bigger than the Eiffel Tower!

In the study, the researchers observed Apophis speeding up due to ‘non-uniform thermal radiation’.
