‘Dangerous’ THREE-MILE WIDE asteroid 3200 Phaethon heads to Earth TONIGHT

The massive space rock, which causes the dramatic Geminids meteor shower, is speeding through space at 45,000mph towards our planet. NASA has branded the object, named 3200 Phaethon, “potentially hazardous”. However, the likelihood is that it will just skim past the Earth before heading off to orbit the sun again. At 5km wide, the asteroid is one of the largest ever discovered in our solar system. However, it is still only around half the size of Chicxulub, which helped wipe out the dinosaurs 66 million years ago. And it will…

Ashes 2017-18: Australia v England third Test, day two – live!

Yes, 6-for-35. Malan and Bairstow were magnificent and flying. Australia were leaking runs and losing their way. Smith was running out of options. Then the left-hander took on Lyon, top-edged, and it was on. Batting with the tail again, Bairstow went from complete control to hectic. His downfall was inevitable. Between times, Moeen edged his second ball. The short ball took care of the bowlers. Now? From nowhere, it is Advantage Australia. With that news, I’m going to leave you for some lunch. Back shortly.

Lewis Hamilton will not quit Formula 1 for Indy Car or Le Mans
