    NASA’s Near Earth Object Programme puts the enormous lump of rock on course to pass within six million miles of Earth on May 14.

    In astronomical terms this is a tiny distance and close enough to prompt astronomers to keep an eye on it until is passes safely.

    As long as they're keeping an eye on it we'll be alright.

    To put this into context, this object will 'just' miss us by the same distance as 24 times the distance from us to the moon. So really close!

  17. "Though several million miles away astronomers fear a slight deviation from its orbit will put it on a headlong collision course with the planet."

    I would like to know what could cause a mile wide lump of rock travelling at 30,000 MPH to "deviate slightly" ?
