Number of near Earth objects
How many near Earth objects are there?
It is widely known the fact that a near-Earth object (NEO) is a Solar System object whose orbit brings it into proximity with Earth. It is important to know that as of August 2012, there had been 848 near-Earth asteroids larger than 1 km discovered. Keep in mind that 154 are potentially hazardous asteroids. Specialists sustained in 2006 that 20% of the mandated objects have not yet been found. Needless to say, it is estimated that it is estimated that 93% of the NEAs larger than 1 km have been found. Believe it or not, only about 70 near Earth objects remain to be discovered.
