Well, there is a bright side to all of this, I suppose. Both NASA and Nico have agreed that if Apophis does collide with the Earth, it will create a ball of iron and iridum which will be 320 meters wide and weigh 200 billion tons and that the tsunamis and/or dust clouds it will create will pretty much wipe out pretty much all of the people you may know pretty much, yourself included, which ain’t pretty, but at least their numbers jived on that one. So NASA is back in the ballgame.
