99942 Apophis 2029



Well in December 2004 there were false rumours about an asteroid impact on the scale of the KT extinction 65 million years ago.



Data has now been refined, to ascertain the vicinity of the flyby and we are safe, so we say.




This is a great introductory link to Apophis for background reading on impact probabilities in 2036, and the



Torino Scale World Record


The purpose of this short post is to provide a portal of links to Near Earth Asteroid Projects and Web Resources.
