    Isn't this the same asteroid that is said will come back and strike earth if it passes through that keyhole the first time it gets close to earth?

        Interesting how 1 in 45000 is down from the estimate of 1 in 320000 less than a year ago. I'm waiting until it gets close and that drops to 1 in 10...then magically drops to "we're boned" a few years later on the return trip.

          Pretty scary odds.

          Maybe it's Apophis that ends the world in 2012?

            I'm not too concerned with an asteroid. It probably won't do much damage, apocalypse wise, because Earth is much bigger than it.

              I wonder where it will strike?? I am going to wait until the DHS starts requesting you set up your saran wrap shelter....

                  It might team kill another asteroid before it has a shot at us. :row__642:

                          For what exactly? Just to post links?
                          At least try and make the 15 posts you make to get there actually mean something and contribute to the thread. :/

                            Pirate has a point here. Post spamming just for the sake of being able to post links is a good way to get whacked with the banhammer.

                            Speaking of banhammers, if this thing does hit, it might make it even harder to connect to the EA login servers on tuesday and thursday nights, which would really suck.

                              Whether you should be concerned has nothing to do with the relative size of the asteroid to the Earth or how much damage it will do to the Earth (understood as something of a big rock). What you should be concerned about is how much damage it will do to human civilization. That can be very great even if the overall damage to the Earth is little.
