Goodbye World??

Apophis AsteroidIs the end really nigh?  The asteroid know as Apophis is expected to pass very close to earth on 13th April 2029, and depending on how close that pass is it could hit us on it´s next pass on 13th April 2036.

Provisionally known as 2004 MN4, it was thought that it would hit Earth on it´s first pass, but further calculations show that it´s path will take it past us, but it will be a near-miss.

Also alarming was the news that if Apophis flies through a certain band of space, 610 meters wide, it will throw the orbit out by enough of a margin that it could hit us in 2036!  But this is a very slim chance and I´m sure that by then they will have found a way to send Bruce Willis into Space……
