BRING IT ON: Giant Asteroid Could Smack Earth In 2032

asteroid-earth-collision.jpg

A recently discovered asteroid that passed by earth last month is due for another pass in 2032, and, if the tractor beam I'll have built by then has anything to say about it, a catastrophic collision. We're coming, dinosaurs!

Such a collision could unleash a force as powerful as a couple of thousand atomic bombs.


Also, the chances that this one, which the Ukrainian astronomers who discovered it named 2013 TV135, will collide with Earth are extremely slim, NASA said in a statement it called "a reality check."

The probability of it striking Earth currently stands at 1:63,000, and even those odds are fading fast, as scientists find out more about the asteroid.

Hmmm, so the odds of a collision are currently 1 in 63,000. Not gonna lie, I was really hoping for something more along the lines of 1:3. You know, something we could really get excited about. Oh well, fingers crossed it at least wrecks the shit out of the moon.

Thanks again to E V I L A R E S, who's so evil he's coming over this afternoon to help me start construction on a tractor beam.

    What is the entire media's infatuation with posting headlines marked "Asteroid could collide with earth" and then posting the very low probability in the article itself? How about "Asteroid to pass closely by earth" or "Asteroid tracked near earth's orbit"? Not, "Impending Doom! Maybe! More than likely not!"

    Click bait.
