The 325-metre asteroid 99942 Apophis that will safely fly by the Earth in 2029 and 2036, may strike the planet in 2068, says an article published on the NASA website.
The 300m-wide Apophis asteroid, which was set to strike Earth on 13 April 2036, will fly pass our planet, US astronomers have claimed.
ESA`s Herschel space observatory made new observations about asteroid Apophis as it approached Earth this weekend, showing it to be bigger than first estimated, and less reflective.
