That's not really the point, though. It's all whether or not it comes close enough to be pulled in by the Earth's gravity well, not whether or not Jupiter could fit between the Earth and the moon. That's a neat graphic, but with the concerns we actually have, the more worrisome part of that scenario is the earth getting ripped apart by how close to Jupiter and Saturn it is.


That's all that it is and no one is saying otherwise.  Not sure how you got some "point" out of it.

mr_larry: A whopper asteroid named Apophis - estimated at approximately 1,000 feet or more than 300 meters - will pass at just one-tenth the distance between Earth and the moon in 2029.

I sure hope the geniuses that figure out these orbits have all of their pencils sharpened and their calculators fully charged.

When is that Chinese space station crashing to earth? Isn't that happening pretty soon?


I'm more worried about a terrorist attack inside my home than I am about the Chinese space station having big enough pieces survive re-entry to land on the earth AND have those pieces land in any kind of a populated area.
