    Russia’s Federal Space Agency may try to deflect Apophis, the 880-megaton asteroid that can bring hell to Earth (for comparison, the total power of the entire deployed US nuclear arsenal is around 1400 Megatons), and that it would invite NASA, the European Space Agency, the Chinese space agency and others to join the project once it is finalized.

    I cannot help but wonder if, like NASA’s actions, a lot of smoke is being developed in order to hide something else.

    If that sucker were to hit us, it would DEFINITELY be an ELE (Extinction Level Event). Even a really close pass has the potential to majorly screw with our atmosphere, tides, etc. on a GLOBAL scale.
