Ok no body seems to be replying, but I think its interesting that an Asteroid is coming this close to earth and nobody seems to be talking about it.

My wife came running into the room today excited because "Armageddon" is on HD DVD. She loves the "holy crap we're gonna die" movies. Statistically, that is amazing.
How big is this thing & what would happen if something this size hit the middle east?.......oh sorry, I meant the earth.

Its 1/4th mile wide, I belive thats the same size as the chunk that hif the atlantic in the movie "Deep Impact" (which is only a movie, but I'll assume they did some research) if it its the ocean it will cause huge tusnimis that would completely destroy and coastal city. if it hits the middle east....I have no Idea, But I'd be willing to bet there wont be anymore Bin Ladin

I heard a rumor on the internet and didn't believe a word of it, but I googled it anyway and found this NASA site that shows the orbit and how close it is to earth.
