Last 2002 or somewhat 2003,an asteroid almost hit our planet earth.We are very lucky that in some way the asteroid lost track and didn't hit earth..but sometime in future,I've read 2012,an asteroid the size of the moon will direclty hit our planet.. Eversince I've read about this,I kept thinking and thinking if life extinction will happen again like what happened in the past era of the dinosaurs...yikes scary thought!! Do you guys think it's really possible?I mean 2012 is like 3 years away..

I have not heard about this asteroid. Are you sure about this? What ever happens, happens. With our technology, I think we should be able to deflect it or destroy it in time, don't you think? I think everything will be OK.

That would suck, but It seems to be a bunch of hype. I found some info on about.com tha looks legit. You should check it out. I can't paste the link here, other wiseI ould I also read that NASA has a list of asteroids and the rating of danger.
