CNN reports Giant asteroid possibly on collision course with Earth
 
If astronomers are right, all life on this planet could be extinguished in less than 30 years from now. Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory have detected a large object the size of Manhattan possibly on a collision course with Earth. Using their Near-Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (NEOWISE), the 10-mile wide object was found approximately 51 million miles from Earth. Scientists believe that during a close encounter with Mars, the asteroid was nudged slightly off its usual orbit and may currently be on a high speed collision course with our fragile planet.

The asteroid is calculated to have a potentially lethal encounter with the Earth on March 35, 2041. Astronomers have placed the odds of an impact at 1 in 2.04, which is by far the most unprecedented risk ever faced to humanity, let alone from asteroids. Such an impact could potentially end civilization as we know it.

If you go to the link in the top left hand corner of the picture it says; "not vetted by CNN." This was posted by some guy in Pasadena California named Marcus575.

As usual, it is more telling to read the comments rather than the blog entry.

I guess they have a short memory regarding posting stories that are not vetted. Some folks just never learn.
