MOSCOW, December 7. /TASS/. Russia’s Federal Space Agency /Roscosmos/ on Sunday refuted media allegations that it had made an official statement about the discovery of a new potentially dangerous asteroid.
“Today, a number of mass media wrongfully cited information from our website about the discovery of a new asteroid that might pose danger to the Earth,” Irina Zubareva, a Roscosmos spokeswoman, told TASS, adding that it was in the competence of scientists to dwell on potential danger of celestial bodies.
“This article posted on our website is a transcript of a programme of the Roscosmos television studio and has direct references to concrete scientists who study this problem. That means that citing of this information as an official statement of Roscosmos is wrongful,” she said.
