    The students had to calculate the mass of the asteroid and time needed to reach the earth. Moreover, they have to decide which kind of STEM professional had to be included in this group and why they are needed additional data needed: The asteroid is traveling at an average speed of 25 km/sec. Based on a distance of 3.5 billion km from Earth, when will the asteroid hit Earth? Express your answer in days.
