"Earthlings can rest easy. The likelihood of a doomsday scenario in which Earth is destroyed in a freak astrophysical catastrophe is remote - about
once in a billion years, according to a new calculation.
The calculation was made by Max Tegmark, an astrophysicist at MIT in the US, and Nick Bostrom at the University of Oxford in the UK. The story behind
the work begins in 1999, when the media reported concerns that heavy-ion collisions at Brookhaven Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider could spark the
destruction of Earth."
Denial is always my favorite "elite" academic stupid trait telling me the opposite is about to occur.
Beginning in 2006 a series of asteroid impacts will begin ending on 2012 with the "big" one.
