But Dubai's enormous building pales in comparison to an asteroid that's set to pass Earth this week.

The asteroid, named 7335 (1989 JA) measures a whopping 1.1 miles (1.8km) in diameter, and will pass by our planet on Friday.

The asteroid, named 7335 (1989 JA) measures a whopping 1.1 miles (1.8km) in diameter, and will pass by our planet on Friday.

Dubai's enormous Burj Khalifa stands at just over 0.5 miles tall, but pales in comparison to an asteroid that's set to pass Earth this week.

The asteroid will make its closest approach to Earth at 14:26 UTC on Friday, according to NASA's Centre for Near Earth Object Studies, which tracks space rocks.

At that point, the asteroid will be 0.026 astronomical units (2.5 million miles) from Earth and travelling at a staggering speed of roughly 29,348 miles/hour.

To help prepare for such an impact, NASA recently launched its first ever 'planetary defence' spacecraft to deflect an asteroid 6.8 million miles from Earth. 

The probe will smash into the small asteroid Dimorphos, which orbits a larger asteroid called Didymos, at 15,000mph (24,100km/h) in September 2022

This demonstration of 'planetary defence' will inform future missions that could one day save Earth from a deadly asteroid impact
