How likely is asteroid Bennu to crash into earth? The good news is that scientists have a better handle on asteroid Bennu’s whereabouts for the next 200 years. The bad news is that the space rock has a slightly greater chance of clobbering Earth than previously thought.
But don’t be alarmed: Scientists reported that the odds are still quite low that Bennu will hit us in the next century. Bennu will have a close encounter with Earth in 2135.
