April 13, 2036

On this date in 2036, asteroid "99942 Apophis" had a 1 in 5,560 chance of hitting Earth.

  As of May 6, 2013 (April 15, 2013 observation arc), the probability of an impact on April 13, 2036 has been eliminated. Preliminary observations by Goldstone radar in January 2013 effectively ruled out the possibility of an Earth impact by Apophis in 2036.

Yeah, well, we'll see. Rather, you'll see.
I probably won't be around, but others I know and love will be.

Good luck, y'all!
