New Delhi:

A nuclear war between the US and Russia could break out even if a small asteroid explodes over the two nations, where political tensions are high. Yes, Bryan Walsh, author of End Times, has claimed in the book: “The airburst from the 2013 meteor could have easily been mistaken for a nuclear strike by the United States, which was indeed the first reaction of many witnesses on the ground.

So, what happened in 2013?

In 2013, a 20-metre meteor exploded over Chelyabinsk in Russia that damaged windows and caused injuries to more than 1,000 people. Experts had not anticipated the incident, and at first officials were unsure what caused the impact.

“Nuclear tensions between Washington and Moscow are even higher now than they were in 2013. It’s not difficult to imagine – but horrifying to picture – what a knee-jerk Russian reaction to a seeming nuclear attack could have lead to,” Walsh said.

A new research has found that there would be a 30 per cent reduction in precipitation across the world in the ensuing months of a US-Russia huge nuclear war. This would lead to severe global food shortages, the researchers have warned.

“The use of nuclear weapons in this manner by the United States and Russia would have disastrous consequences globally,” the report added.

The article read: “Nuclear winter, with below freezing temperatures overmuch of the Northern Hemisphere during summer, occurs because of a reduction of surface solar radiation due to smoke lofted into the stratosphere.”

Meanwhile, a large number of asteroids are hovering all around the Earth and we might get hit too sooner or later. Recently, many giant asteroids including 2019 OK, 2019 OD, 2015 HM10, 2019 OE, 2019 NN3, 2019 MB4, 2019 MT2, and others approached towards the Earth, fortunately did not hit our planet and we are safe.

It is said that Earth will reach to its end one day and one of the possible reason for this could be an asteroid.
