Asteroid Apophis Is Coming Back And NASA Has a Risky Plan
The infamous asteroid Apophis is coming back. In 2029, it will pass just 32,000 kilometers from our planet. In doing so, the asteroid will swoop below the orbits of geostationary satellites. As a result, it will appear as bright as a satellite, becoming visible to billions of naked-eye observers across the globe.
Such encounters are believed to occur only once every few thousand years, and astronomers do not want to miss this opportunity. So they have proposed possible missions to explore Apophis on or around its passage in 2029.
