WE’RE SUPPOSEDLY SAFE FROM A MONSTER ASTEROID … FOR NOW
NASA scientists have figured out that an asteroid a bit longer than a football field named Apophis is going to get pretty close to Earth. In 2029, this thing will cruise overhead at just under 20,000 miles above the surface. We’ll be able to see it without binoculars or telescopes.
And, when it passes -- supposedly -- it will be the closest thing that could crush us for the next 100 years.
There’s a lot of math going on here. If all the NASA scientists are right, we’re all good. But, you might want to start looking at the stars in April of 2029 to make sure they didn’t make any mistakes.
