Now that the Mayan apocalypse thing didn’t happen, you may be looking ahead for your next global calamity to lament. Unfortunately for you, NASA has ruled out the possibility that two enormous asteroids expected to pass “close to earth,” will in fact hit us. Many of us have heard about the 2029 near miss, but 325m in diameter, 27 billion kilogram Apophis is expected to come with 18,641 miles of earth in 2036. That’s about 141 miles too close for comfort if you ask me. [Source: ArsTechnica]
