2036 and a asteroid called Apophis RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • On a cosmological scale, an asteroid called Apophis is small. However, if the 250 meter wide space rock hits Earth in 2036, as scientists say it may, the consequences would be catastrophic. According to the Association of Space Explorers (ASE), a professional association for astronauts and cosmonauts, the world needs to wake up to the danger or suffer a disaster that would dwarf the Indian Ocean Tsunami of 2004.
