HUNDREDS of giant comets hurtling through space could crash into Earth at ANY MOMENT wiping out every living species.
Scientists today warned the belt of so-called 60 mile-wide ‘Centaurs’ could trigger a mass extinction event.
If one is deflected towards Earth it will break up on approach releasing hundreds of ‘fireballs’ into the atmosphere, they warn.
It would lead to mass devastation with the resulting dust could plunging the Earth into a decade-long winter.
With sunlight all but completely blocked, temperatures would plunge below freezing across the planet – known as an ‘impact winter’.
