“Doomsday asteroid” Apophis flew by the Earth on Wednesday, and while there was no chance of a collision this time, for some time, scientists have been worried that the asteroid could hit Earth when it swings by again in 2029 and 2036. Now, after Wednesday’s close encounter, scientists at NASA have ruled out any significant chance of an impact by Asteroid Apophis.
Apophis was discovered in 2004 by NASA scientists who concluded there was about a 2.7 percent chance of the asteroid colliding with Earth when it comes near in 2029. While this was eventually ruled out, astronomers believed there was a still a chance at a 2036 impact.
