Asteroid on Collision Course with Earth!

Here in the Gulf South we have learned to respect Mother Nature. She sometimes does things that can make life on this, the third rock from the Sun a little scary. We all have some idea about hurricanes and tornadoes, we learned a little bit about snow and ice last week, but how about “partly cloudy with a chance of asteroids?” It seems there is this one space rock that scientist call Apophis that is kind of, sort of, but not really on a collision course with Mother Earth. We say kind of, sort of because the reports of our eminent demise come from Russian scientist, the same folks who used to publish Weekly World News.

Now, reports out of Russia say that scientists there estimate Apophis will collide with Earth on April 13, 2036. These reports conflict on the probability of such a doomsday event, but the question remains: How scared should we be?

I am thinking for me, 2036 I will more than likely be dead anyway so I’m not to concerned. For you youngsters, you might want to read up on this asteroid and see what you are going to be up against. Who knows maybe all that video game experience will come in handy when it come to blasting the big rock out of the sky.

(via Apophis asteroid will probably almost certainly not smash into Earth, say scientists – CSMonitor.com.)
