If you haven’t already heard, there’s (depending on your source) a 1 in 45 or a 1 in 37 chance that Asteroid 2004 MN4 could wander into the planet on April 13, 2029, causing widespread destruction and other unpleasant effects reminiscent of the plots of bad movies from 1998. Information may be found here and here.

Happy New Year!

UPDATE: As reported in the responses, more recent estimates significantly reduce the odds of impact.
