Scientists from NASA have that asteroids will not a danger to Earth for the next 100 years. This is good news for anyone who was about the end of the world. NASA has been an asteroid called Apophis for 17 years. They the 335-metre space rock in 2004. They thought it could a danger to our planet, so they put it on their list of the most hazardous asteroids that could Earth. The scientists originally said the asteroid could kill over 10 million people if it Earth. They it could hit our planet in 2029. They later changed this to 2068. However, their latest prediction is that Earth will safe from Apophis for the next 100 years.

The scientists used radar to the asteroid's orbit around the sun. NASA scientist Marina Brozovic said: "We were able to incredibly precise information about its distance to an accuracy of about 150 meters." She the giant space rock is currently "a safe distance of 10.6 million miles away from Earth". However, Apophis will closer in 2029. It will within 20,000 miles of Earth on April the 13th in that year. Another scientist was glad Apophis no longer a danger to us. He said: "There's a certain sense of satisfaction to it from the risk list, and we're forward to the science we might during its close approach to Earth in 2029."
