NASA had said Apophis asteroid could have hit around 2029

 
Apophis is the asteroid that in the Rage fiction hits the Earth causing all the death and destruction that leads to you needing to shoot dudes in the face. They had been saying it was a 1/45,000 chance, but now estimate a 1/4,000,000.
 
Or that's they WANT us to believe.

Chances are still small either way.

I dunno man. Better to keep your Bruce Willises and Aerosmiths on stand-by just in case.

In a case like this 1 in 45k chance is actually not that small.
