Apophis - Could Stirke Earth in 2036

A Date to pencil in your diary's, there is a 1 in 200 000 change that it could strike Earth 13th April 2036, fortunatly we'll have 7 years warning as we'll know in 2029.

Unfortunatly Landau is beeing quite prissy about it all, seems he was storing a lot of his Space 1999 costumes in the satellite re-orientation room and now we might have to move them elsewhere and he is not happy. lol

On a more postive note Connery has done a smashing job keeping all the floors clean in the place. lol

At least you guys are envisioning something good. I keep flashing back to Connie Sellecca and William Devane.

The Tea Party will bitch and moan about the cost to deflect and decide its better for humanity to perish than ask the rich to pay any more in taxes.

The comedic replies are fine, but this isn't TNZ, so let's not have any more like this one, OK?

Hey, we didn't actually see him die the last time. The bugs were crawling all over his shield and a few minutes later his ship plowed into the surface -- but there was plenty of time for him to ring out in the meantime.

Since then, of course, he's been working on mass drivers to propel the asteroid with his name on it. That's why we haven't seen him.
