Su nombre es 2005 YU55 y ayer pasó tan cerca de la Tierra (a unos 320.000 kilómetros) que se podía ver con un telescopio.

Este asteroide ha traido a la memoria colectiva las lluvias de rocas espaciales tan habituales en películas como ‘Superman’ o ‘2001 una odisea en el espacio’. Algunos han llegado a vaticinar que su impacto sobre la superficie terrestre podría ser catastrófico. Sin embargo, urticaria los científicos no dejan margen para la imaginación: “Este asteroide va a pasar muy cerca de la Tierra pero no va a impactar. Por lo tanto, buy no es peligroso”, afirma con rotundidad la investigadora Julia León, del Instituto Astrofísico de Andalucía, del CSIC.
Con todo, “es un evento raro, que no suele ocurrir y, según nuestras previsiones, para que otro objeto similar se acerque tanto a nuestro planeta tendremos que esperar hasta 2028 o 2030”, puntualiza la astrofísica.

Objetivamente, sí hay motivos para una cierta alarma. El primero es que se trata de un asteroide grande, de 400 metros de diámetro (más grande que el portaaviones español Juan Carlos I o el Titanic y de la misma eslora que el superpetrolero Esso Pacific), y otro es la proximidad a la Tierra. Como explica León, “un asteroide se considera potencialmente peligroso cuando su diámetro es mayor de 150 metros y se acerca a nuestro planeta a menos de 20 veces la distancia de la Tierra a la Luna”. Y con estos requisitos, hay más de un millar de asteroides catalogados.

Los científicos de la NASA y de la Agencia Espacial Europea (ESA) han hecho un seguimiento minucioso de 2005 YU55. Desde que se descubrió, en 2005, los astrónomos han estudiado su órbita para determinar las posibilidades de que impacte en la Tierra, y la conclusión final es tranquilizadora.

Pero, ¿cómo saber que la información que nos llega es la correcta? Emmet Fletcher, Responsable del programa de Reconocimiento y Seguimiento espacial de la ESA explica que “hay que validar los datos que llegan de grupos independientes. En este caso, lo han hecho la Universidad de Pisa y un centro de Estados Unidos. Después de cotejar sus cálculos comprobaron que coincidían”.

Tal vez, para algunos sea una decepción saber que nuestro planeta no está, de momento en peligro, pero “la cercanía de este asteroide tiene un enorme interés científico, ya que nos permitirá estudiarlo desde tan cerca que podremos ver bien su superficie, estudiar su composición y otros datos que pueden arrojar más luz sobre el origen del universo”, apunta León. “El rádar Goldstone lo podrá observar con una resolución de cuatro metros”.

El astrónomo de la ESA añade que habrá que esperar cien años para que las alarmas vuelvan a saltar. “Son situaciones excepcionales, pero la caída de meteoritos a la Tierra es muy frecuente. Disponemos de cientos de fragmentos que hemos recogido de distintos lugares y que nos ayudan a conocer la composición del universo”.

Métodos de defensa

Aunque por ahora no hay que temer un gran impacto, los científicos trabajan desde hace años en el desarrollo de métodos defensivos para evitar una colisión potencialmente catastrófica. “Lo más sencillo y barato parece ser bombardear el cuerpo peligroso”, indica León, pero “la solución puede ser peor que la amenaza, porque hay que saber como controlar los fragmentos en los que se rompe ese cuerpo”.

Fletcher añade que otra opción sería enviar cohetes capaces de alterar la trayectoria del cuerpo amenazante. “Las soluciones son muy diferentes, pero se necesitan varios años para preparar una estrategia defensiva eficaz”.
