Asteroid Apophis is Coming Back and NASA has Confirmed its Bold Plan



One of the most potentially hazardous asteroids, Apophis, is coming back and NASA has a bold plan this time. In 2029, it will approach our planet at a distance of just 32,000 kilometers or about 19,900 miles, passing below the orbits of geostationary satellites and shining as brightly as a satellite itself. This event will make it visible to billions of naked-eye observers worldwide, a rare occurrence that occurs only once every few thousand years.

Even more exciting is that NASA's OSIRIS-APEX mission is already on its way to study the asteroid up close.
