City-Sized Asteroid to Pass Earth This Fall

A minor rumor has hatched on the Internet that a large and deadly asteroid will strike Earth this fall. Bulletin board discussions cite a 63 percent chance of impact, while concerned readers have e-mailed SPACE.com wondering if it is true.

Astronomers know of no such impending doom.

The rumors are likely rooted in a real event, however. On Sept. 29, 2004 an asteroid the size of a small city will make the closest known pass of such a very large space rock anytime this century.

How can they predict something like that? cant an asteroids path be set off by hitting other flying objects in space?..also if it is small, once it hits the atmosphere...hopefully...it would burn up....just maybe....i jsut hope tahts not true...

They know where most of the objects in space are, especially those near our earth.

Personally I don't care if any astroid hits. We'll be all dead anyway.

atleast assuming that the asteriod in question is large enough to cause an extinction level event ;)

although that said, if it were, i wouldn't really care, either. i mean, at that point, my accomplishments in life would pretty much be on par with isaac newton's or albert einstein's (ie. there'd be no accomplishments), heh.

I'm amused. Well at least it's probably just about NO LONGER FALL, that we're all pretty safe right about now. Unless, of course, it would hit in the next few days...
