Thirty years ago, way back in November 2000 Astronomers first sighted the asteroid that is about to hit the earth today. It remains to be seen whether this lump of rock will disintegrate on impact with the atmosphere or whether it will hit the surface causing general unpleasantnes (even the end of everything?).

This asteroid is the first ever to recieve a rating on the ten point Torino scale. It recieves the lowest rating ,1, due to it's small size. With a then predicted one in 500 chance of hitting the earth this is quite serious. It is however mitigated by it's relativly small size, about that of average office block. Several million might perish but macdonalds is sure to survive (no justice from space then).

The only thing left to say is welcome to earth SG344
