A minor rumor has hatched on the Internet that a large and deadly asteroid will strike Earth this fall. Bulletin board discussions cite a 63
percent chance of impact, while concerned readers have e-mailed SPACE.com wondering if it is true.
Astronomers know of no such impending doom.
The rumors are likely rooted in a real event, however. On Sept. 29, 2004 an asteroid the size of a small city will make the closest known pass of such
a very large space rock anytime this century.
Wow.. Some scary stuff, It's known that asteriods pass close to earth, but this one is the size of a small city, real huge. We'll have to wait and
see until the end of next month.
