November 8, 2011:
Asteroid 2005 YU55 will approach Earth inside the Moon's orbit, at a distance of 191,120 miles (307,577 km) from our planet.
March 21, 2014:
Asteroid 2003 QQ47, called "an event meriting careful monitoring" by astronomers, rendezvous with Earth.
February 1, 2019:
Mile wide asteroid 2002 NT7 reaches Earth.
In February 2000 the University of Pisa issued a "scientifically urgent" warning about the trajectory of Asteroid 2000 BF19, aimed to arrive at Earth in 2022.
The 50-ft. asteroid known as 2007 XB23 will make one of the closest approaches to Earth.
August 7, 2027:
Asteroid 1999 AN10 will come within 800,000 kilometers (500,000 miles) of Earth, which is less than 3 times the Moon's distance from us.
October 26, 2028:
Mile wide asteroid 1997 FX11 is due to arrive.
April 13, 2029:
Asteroid 2004 MN4, a quarter-mile-wide Rock, is due to come within 22,600 miles of Earth, and be caught by Earth's gravity. In July 2005 NASA re-named this Rock "the Apophis."
September 21, 2030:
Asteroid 2000 SG344, a rock the size of an office building, arrives.
June 3, 2048:
Asteroid VK184 was discovered on November 12, 2007 by the Catalina Sky Survey. Thought to be about 430-foot in diameter (130 meters), NASA officials say it has a 1 in 2900 chance of hitting Earth on June 3, 2048.
February 1, 2060:
On July 29, 2002 the Associated Press reported, "Astronomers initially calculated at least seven potential impact dates [for 1.2 mile-wide asteroid 2002 NT7]...February 1, 2060 has yet to be ruled out."
NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory says asteroid 2002 EM7 could impact Earth.
On January 24, 2008 Steve Ostro, of the Near Earth Object program at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, speaking about the near miss of Earth by asteroid 2007 TU24, said, "We can guarantee that there's zero chance of any [TU24] hazardous close approaches to Earth until 2170."
March 16, 2880:
Asteroid 1950 DA, two-thirds of a mile wide, arrives. Between now and the year 2880, 1950 DA will swing between Earth and Mars 25 times, each time it will be affected by the gravitational pull of Earth, coming closer with each pass.
"Earth-crossing asteroids larger than ten meters, there [are] over a hundred million of these objects in the sky...all of which are capable of colliding with the Earth."
- Steve Ostro, Jet Propulsion Laboratory
"An asteroid about the size of a house comes between the orbit of the Earth and moon about once each day. An asteroid about the size of a football field comes between the Earth and moon about once each month."
- William Bottke, Fire In The Sky, TBS 3/23/97
"Recently declassified information has revealed some worrying statistics. On average our atmosphere is hit by an icy object from space, maybe 30 feet across, once a month. The information used to be secret, so similar were the impacts to high altitude explosions. Indeed, Earth-space is abuzz with debris. There are more chunks of asteroids and comets in our vicinity than scientists have ever suspected."
- Wonders of the Universe, TLC 5/95
"A decade-long study by the U.S. military revealed 250 detonations in the atmosphere over ten years. That averages 25 detonations a year, or one nuclear-type explosion every two weeks."
-Fire In The Sky, TBS 3/23/97
"I would suggest to those who think that we could survive the impact of a massive asteroid striking this country, need to think again."
