  4. 2029 Apophis Asteroid Will Pass So Close to Earth, It Will Experience Mini Asteroid Avalanches

    Fact: The Earth is as scary to asteroids as asteroids are to us.

    We're all so busy worrying what a close asteroid pass means for us and any ragtag teams of retired astronauts that no one takes the time to consider what it means for the asteroid.
