twas an older video (2008) calculations have changed the trajectory.. but thanks for the scare...here is what was said on that.. thanks wikipedia.

Its diameter is approximately 325 metres (1,066 ft).[3] As of the December 29, 2012 observation arc, the probability of an April 13, 2036 impact is considered to be 1 in 7,143,000.[4] Of objects not recently observed, there are about ten asteroids with a more notable Palermo Technical Impact Hazard Scale than Apophis.[10]

I agree. He is one of the finest.

Cant help thinking about the other side of the coin,... Richard Hoagland, Stanton Friedman, or some other snake-oil salesman. :lol:
