Big Asteroid 2011 AG5 Could Pose Threat to Earth in 2040

Space: "Scientists are keeping a close eye on a big asteroid that may pose an impact threat to Earth in a few decades.

The space rock, which is called 2011 AG5, is about 460 feet (140 meters) wide. It may come close enough to Earth in 2040 that some researchers are calling for a discussion about how to deflect it."

The story is too old to be commented.

It is always an eye opener when you think that there are all of these asteroids zipping around(a lot that we don't know of yet) and there is the potential for one to just hit the Earth one day.

Wouldn't be much we could do about it now, hopefully the right amount of importance is placed on developing counter-measures before we actually need them.
