    Apophis?

    Well i was talking to my friend on Aim and he brought this up at first i didnt know what he said and when he told me i didnt remember So its an asteroid coming towards Earth

    Before there was an Asteroid that passed us in 1908 and we didnt know bout it till it passed by and a part of it Exploded of a Forest causing 800 Miles of it too be gone

    It was called the Siberia Explosion
    http://www.psi.edu/projects/siberia/siberia.html

    The fact is that this new Asteroid "Apophis" is suppose to be 7 times Bigger then that one, 350 times wider and is heading towards earth. They Believe its going to hit/pass us in 2029

    My friend says if it doesnt Hit us, it would be closer on passing us then the Satellites in Space that we would be able to see it at night so yea it be that close

    He also says if it misses/passes us the gravity of Earth and the other planets are going to send it right back at us 7 years later

    scientists say they'll know more about Apophis in 2013 which is sucky

    They say it was discovered in 2004 and they knew it was coming to Earth and the Chances of it hitting us was 1 in over 450,000

    Now 5 Years later the new Chances are 1 in 45,000 Its still big but thats a huge drop right there

    More Info on Apophis

    Do u think we will get Hit in the Near Future or will we find a way to kill this giant Rock?

    2029? Thats enough time to train a group of SEALS to attack and destroy it before it hits us.

    If I die in 2029, then well, I am shocked I made it that long.

    I have enough shit to worry about, I can't worry about things I have no control over. It is also entirely more likely that a milk truck will plow through my wall killing me as I type this.... well not today!

    20 years ago the height of our technology was an 8 bit NES. I think 20 years in the future we should have something that can help with this problem. Hell 20 years from now we might live on the moon and say fuck what happens here. (doubtful)

    That kind of shit does scare me though. I'm not sure why. Hearing things like the sun is going to blow up or things like that creep me out. Anything thing that deals with space and natural disasters scares the shit out of me. Maybe because of the scale its on and the fact that there is no control over it.

    on a side note. Couldn't a giant trampolene just sling shot it back where it came from. DUH

    Height of technology available to general public, perhaps. Your point is still somewhat valid, though.
