    Since when have the russians done anything succesfully? Yeah, they'll try to veer it off path and probably be into a direct collision with earth. Whereas if they left it alone it wouldn't hit us.

    The wikipedia article is pretty good. The probability of a direct hit is pretty low, but higher than we have seen in a while.

    Anyhoo, the closest pass isn't until Friday, April 13, 2029...wait Friday...the 13th....nuts

    Actually we've got tons of time, from what I've read nobody is completely sure why the Russians are doing this now...but better early than late I always say.

    Speculation - don't really believe it myself...

    But could it simply be cover for the Russians to develop space weapons?
