An asteroid with diameters between 22 and 49 meters will shoot pass Earth in a distance closer than Earth from the Moon on Tuesday, according to the US National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
"Will #asteroid 2011 ES4 hit Earth? No! 2011 ES4's close approach is 'close' on an astronomical scale but poses no danger of actually hitting Earth. #PlanetaryDefense experts expect it to safely pass by at least 45,000 miles (792,000 football fields) away on Tuesday Sept. 1," NASA Asteroid Watch posted Saturday on its Twitter account.
NASA estimates the asteroid's relative speed at around 8.16 km per second.
The last time asteroid 2011 ES4 fly by Earth was visible from ground for four days. This time, it will be closer to our planet than before with an estimated distance of 1.2 lakh km, closer than that of the Moon, which is 3.84 lakh km away from the Earth.
The asteroid listed as potentially hazardous asteroid was first discovered in the spring of 2011 and passes by Earth every nine years.
A "potentially hazardous asteroid" is currently defined based on parameters that measure the asteroid's potential to make threatening close approaches to the Earth, according to NASA.

Elon Musk set a coin-seized computer chip in a pig’s brain in an attempt to materialise the ambitious plans to create a working brain-to-machine interface.
He unveiled the pig named Gertrude to demonstrate his ambitious plans, reports BBC.
"It's kind of like a Fitbit in your skull with tiny wires," the billionaire entrepreneur said on a webcast. His start-up Neuralink applied to launch human trials last year.
The interface could allow people with neurological conditions to control phones or computers with their mind.

Musk argued that such chips could eventually be used to help cure conditions such as dementia, Parkinson's disease and spinal cord injuries.
But the long-term ambition is to usher in an age of what Musk calls "superhuman cognition", in part to combat artificial intelligence so powerful he says it could destroy the human race.
Gertrude was one of three pigs in pens that took part in Friday's webcast demo. She took a while to get going, but when she ate and sniffed straw, the activity showed up on a graph tracking her neural activity.
The processor in her brain sends wireless signals, indicating neural activity in her snout when looking for food.
Several low to mid-budget phones have hit the Smartphone market in recent days. Are you confused about which one to buy and which to let go?

A secondary noise cancellation mic sits on the upper edge. On the bottom edge, M21 offers a USB C port, a 3.5mm audio jack, a speaker grill, and the primary microphone. The performance of the loudspeaker is good.
On the rear-end M21 has a camera bump holding a triple camera set up with an LED light. Its physical fingerprint sensor is also placed on the backside. This sensor may take a moment to response. This Smartphone is available in two amazing colors: Midnight Blue and Raven Black.
Samsung Galaxy M21 is blessed with a 6.4-inch full HD Plus display. You may know that the Super AMOLED panel is a flagship-level feature offered by the luxurious phones. Thanks to Samsung for introducing this premium feature in their low budget Smartphone Samsung Galaxy M21. Its bezels look average with 84.2% screen-to-body ratio. Samsung boasts that M21 has 420 nits brightness. It can perform average in direct sunlight.
M21’s resolution capacity (1080 x 2340 pixels, 19.5:9 ratios, and 403 PPI densities) is good enough to please you while watching video contents. While competitor Realme 6 is offering a 90HZ refresh rate at a lower price range, M21’s 60HZ may disappoint you. However, lack of a higher refresh rate won’t prevent you from enjoying content in this Smartphone. The Corning Gorilla Glass 3 Protection is good, but 5 would have been better.
On the rear-end, Samsung Galaxy M21 has a triple camera (48MP+8MP+5MP) series. The primary sensor features 48MP wide shooter at f/2.0 aperture. The picture quality of its main rear camera is attractive with proper sharpness, details, and color vibrancy.
Like other phones, M21’s low-light images are not pleasing like its day-light captures. It has a night mode feature to improve the picture quality in the low light situations. However, still you can see noises after zooming. But the auto-focusing feature of this Smartphone may not work efficiently all the time. However, if compared with other phones under similar price-range, M21’s prime shooter does a good job.
Galaxy M21 is provided with an 8MP (f/2.2 aperture) wide-angle sensor. The dynamic range is average. Considering the price range, this sensor performs average. Like the primary shooter counterpart, the wide-angle shooter also performs well if there is ample light.
Furthermore, utilizing M21’s 5MP (f/2.2 aperture) Depth sensor, you can take nice portraits under the portrait mode. In photos, the details are found quite average, but the edges of the subject are good. Unlike the mid-budget counterpart M31, the budget phone M21 does not have any macro shooter.
With the rear sensors, you can shoot a maximum of 4K videos at 30fps without any stabilization facility. If you choose the 1080p resolution at 30fps, you can enjoy super stabilization mode with the gyro-EIS feature. The video quality seems average in both modes.
For the selfie lovers, Samsung has provided a 20MP front sensor featuring F/2.0 aperture with HDR feature. You can take good selfies showing nice details and edges. Interestingly, M21’s front shooter allows you to take photos at a wide-angle. It is a bonus for those who love to take group-selfies. But the color accuracy of photos may distort a bit from the real-life objects. With front camera, you can shoot videos at 1080p at 30fps.
Samsung Galaxy M21’s CPU is built with an octa-core processor featuring four cores (Cortex-A73) at 2.3 GHz clock speed and four cores (Cortex-A53) at 1.7 GHz clock speed. It carries Exynos 9611 (10nm) chipset coupled with Mali-G72 MP3 GPU which we have also seen in its superior counterpart Galaxy M31.
Samsung has applied Exynos chipset in their other Smartphone series. It performs well for regular usage, social media navigation, and multi-tasking. While playing games you can experience some lags. But still, you can do casual gaming without facing significant heating issues. However, Galaxy M21 is not recommended for the heavy gamers who desire to play PUBG or similar games smoothly without lags in high settings.
By virtue of Samsung’s One UI 2 operating system on top of Android 10, Galaxy M21 delivers a seamless user experience without the interference of any advertisements. You can easily uninstall the unnecessary apps to get speedier performance. M21 is available two variants 4GB/64GB and 6GB/128GB. This phone is equipped with UFS 2.1 technology.
Samsung Galaxy M21 out-wins many expensive competitors with its 6000 mAh battery. The heavy users can use this phone for about a day, while moderate usage can keep it alive for about 2 days. With the provided 18W fast charger, you can fully recharge this phone within 2.5 hours. However, a powerful charger could have reduced the charging duration.
Recently people are talking about the networking issue of Samsung Galaxy M21 Smartphone. On test, it is found that for GP Sim the network bars are less in comparison with Airtel or Robi SIM. The Wi-Fi signals are also low than other phones. The 4G connectivity may not work properly. Though the ear-piece is working well, the sound quality of calls may show some distortions to the receivers. However, the network antenna of this phone may have some issues.
To combat these issues you can optimize the setting options of Galaxy M21. Navigate to the ‘connection’ option from settings. Then you will find an option ‘Network Operators’. Now activate the option ‘Select automatically,’ if the default setting is showing ‘Select Manually.’ After this optimization, Samsung Galaxy M21 is expected to overcome the network issues.
Samsung Galaxy M21’s 4GB/64GB is currently available at BDT 18,999 and the 6GB/128GB costs about BDT 20,999 in Bangladesh.
Overall, Samsung Galaxy M21 is a great Smartphone under budget range. It can be a great choice for people who want to enjoy video streaming for long hours with excellent display quality. M21 is not a gaming-centric phone but works fine for casual gaming. The price tag seems reasonable. Hope it helps!
