    Note, if you're easily depressed, read no further and hit the back browser or go to another page :eek: !



    Anyways, here it is: http://www.lpl.arizona.edu/impacteffects/ . If you can figure it out, it queries you on a bunch of scenarios and take forever to figure out, but it does figure it out. The good news, I picked this up off yahoo, and it mentioned that though no objects are calculated to have a significant chance of impact, if they were we would have decades or centuries of warning, so we could potentially gather our resources and find a way to prevent the object from harming us. Anyways, have fun (<-- :?: )

    I suspect that since the universe has been up and running for an extended period, there is a chance [however slim it might be], that the earth will collide with something.

    I expect the odds are not greater than the possibility that it would happen in the past or about 1 in 1x10 18th.

    Perhaps you might be willing to find something to do about it?
