For my Fact checking assignment i went to find an article about an asteroid having a collision on the moon. After reading the article i wanted to know if the article was actually true so i did some further research on this topic and couldn’t find any other articles about the same thing. i went to a website called Snopes.com to fact check what i had just read in the article. After reading what it said on Snopes.com the article that i had read about the asteroid collision with the moon was fake. It never happened. Although i found some other interesting facts about asteroids and the earth. NASA has been studying an asteroid that has a small potential chance of colliding with the earth.
