..... and in case you donít read to the end of that article, hereís the reassuring small print:

Quote
With these terrifying figures in mind, the good news is the probability of LF16 clipping the Earth by the end of the century is incredibly low.

The overall odds of the space rock impacting Earth stands at about one in 30,000,000.

This is a 0.0000033 percent chance of impact, or in other words, a 99.9999967 percent chance of a miss.

And the odds of LF16 barreling straight into the Earth in August 2023 are even smaller Ė one in 370,000,000 or 0.00000027 percent chance of a hit.


But.......... :goggleeyes:

No chance of getting mine finished in only 5 years!!!

Size matters - especially if you don't have a lot of space - and N gauge is the answer!
