Building on its successful first round-trip mission to space rock Itokowa, Japan`s space agency is readying to launch an ambitious new asteroid sampling probe in 2014.
An asteroid, listed as a potentially hazardous object, passed in close proximity to the Earth at noon today.
Scientists have identified an asteroid, which has a one in 625 chance of hitting Earth on February 5, 2040.
A half-km wide asteroid which streaks past the Earth next week could provide clues about how the planet was formed.
