In The Year 2029

Watching The History Channel. They are talking about near earth objects i.e. potential killer asteroids.

Scientists have discovered one that's going to come within 100k miles of Earth or closer than our communications satellites on April 13, 2029. Yes, that is Friday 13th.

They are fairly confident that it will miss. However, there is a small chance it will enter something called a "keyhole" that will cause it to be caught in Earth's gravity, spiral in and crash.

Time to party like it's 2029!
