Will the asteroid apophis hit earth?

The asteroid Apophis will come very close to the Earth - about 14,000 miles - on Friday, April 13, 2029. It will miss.

The gravitational interaction between the Earth, the Moon and Apophis cannot be precisely determined at this time; depending on the EXACT orientation and alignment, there is a very small chance that Apophis will hit the Earth on Friday, April 13, 2036. However, we ought to be able to determine during the 2029 pass if the Earth will be in any danger in 2036, and this will give us seven years to move or destroy the asteroid should it pose any threat to Earth.
