I think thats a pretty interesting article, and it'll be more interesting as it gets closer to the "date." There are so many things that could happen from now till then to change the asteroid's course so we will see. I'm not sold that it will hit Earth.
It's the first time I've heard of it. It's the size of the Eiffel Tower. I don't think it will hit Earth given the projection they did on the article. But we still have time for experts to recalculate and evaluate the risks. Wasn't it recently that something from outerspace hit us with just a couple of days warning?
