Asteroid 2007 TU24: No danger to earth. PDF Print E-mail
Latest JREF News
Written by Jeff Wagg   

The Bad Astromer (Phil Plait) lets us know that we will be ok and that this asteroid will not hit earth as some websites are claiming. He says:

For those who haven’t been following this saga, some doomsayers have been claiming that an asteroid named 2007 TU24 poses a grave threat to Earth. These fearmongers are completely wrong, scaring lots of others, and are apparently unwilling to listen to reason. The videos still make outrageously bad claims and the websites still make utterly false statements. I decided to make my own video so that the truth can get out to as many people as possible.

Thank you Phil for clearing this one up, misinformation is dangerous and it's great to have you out there providing the truth.
