SILICON VALLEY - NASA tweeted on Tuesday that a newly detected asteroid is expected to impact Silicon Valley in 2024. The asteroid, dubbed Silicon Valley Asteroid (SVA), has about a 95% chance of hitting Silicon Valley, according to NASA.

When the asteroid does impact Silicon Valley it would not have the same doomsday effect as the asteroid that decimated the Earth's dinosaurs 66 million years ago - it would just make Silicon Valley unfit for human habitation for 10,000 years.

Amidst the news of the impending impact, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson, announced that the U.S. government won't intervene to prevent the destruction of Silicon Valley; but he emphasized that NASA is working to ensure people and businesses in Silicon Valley remain informed.

Though NASA’s Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) program does have the ability to launch craft that use kinetic energy to redirect the motion of celestial objects such as Asteroids, NASA is opting to not use this capability against the Silicon Valley Asteroid.

“The people [of Silicon Valley] made the choice to live in Silicon Valley, knowing full well that an asteroid could strike there just as I would add an asteroid impacted in the Yucatan 66 million years ago” NASA Administrator Bill Nelson noted before continuing “we just can’t use taxpayer money to bailout the residents of Silicon Valley who knowingly took this risk, no one bailed out the Dinosaurs.”

News of the Silicon Valley Asteroid sent shockwaves through cryptocurrency and tech markets across the world. But although the impact is concerning, NASA Administrator Bill Nelson emphasized that America overall is “safe” and “resilient.”

In unrelated news, NASA announced it would use its Double Asteroid Redirection Test (DART) program to protect the citizens of Billings, Montana from an asteroid that is expected to impact that area in 2026.
