Thom Hartmann reported on his radio program today that this small asteriod is projected to make another pass or possible crash in 2022. Maybe those of us in the northern hemisphere will get to view it then.

Thom Hartmann is wrong. The next close approach of 2011 MD will be in 2023 and will have a minimum distance of 32 million miles.

Hartmann is just a political talking head, not a scientist. He probably was just relaying some crap he overheard at the watercooler.

Are those chart figures reflecting any possible earth gravitational effects on the asteroid's orbit? I know what an AU is, but I am not an astronomy buff. So most of that chart is greek to me.

It's not the size of an office block. It's the size of a school bus, and would break up in the atmosphere if it came close.

The data is current as of today. Yes, the gravitation of Earth as well as the Moon and other planets is taken into account.
