Asteroid Toutatis, will pass Earth Dec, 21 2012!!!
okay, i came across this online and it is very interesting. if it is true then we may get struck dec 21, 2012 by this Asteroid? NASA knows about it but don't think it will be a threat. now i don't know about you but if this is going to be coming close on that date ( December 21, 2012 ) the very same date predicted by Mayan, hopi, and others. Something is bound to be up!

here is a quote from the site below

The truth is that yes, an asteroid will come very close to earth on December 21, 2012. This asteroid is called Toutatis, and it will pass what is, in astrological terms, quite close to the earth. It will be, at its closest, about 4,140,000 miles from the earth. That’s about 18 times the distance of the earth to the moon. As you can see, while this is close in astrological terms, it’s not really that close to the earth, and scientists do not consider it a serious threat at all. It will not hit the earth. This doesn’t mean that there aren’t asteroids out there that scientists haven’t noticed yet that will pass close to the earth, but so far, this isn’t the case.

However, while the asteroid Toutatis may not hit the earth in 2012, there is an asteroid that will come much closer in April of 2027. This asteroid, which has been named Apophis, will actually be less than 22,000 miles from the earth.

This one we know WELL.

Collision risk
Given that Toutatis makes many close approaches the Earth, such as in 1992, 1996, 2000, 2004, 2008, and 2012, it is listed as a potentially hazardous object.[6] The likelihood of collision in the distant future is considered to be very small.[12] As a planet-crossing asteroid, Toutatis is likely to be ejected from the Solar System on a time scale of a few tens of thousands of years, giving it a limited number of opportunities to strike Earth before disappearing forever. As with many Near-Earth objects, the fear mongering doomsday crowd spread misinformation about Toutatis back in 2004.

No, the date is December 12, not 21.

I remember well. I was my 2nd or 3rd year, and there was a fierce debate. The main mistake on the part of the worried side was taking statements about the uncertainties accumulating in long term predictions and assuming that implied that even short term predictions were uncertain and any minute it could unexpected off course and hit us.

Just like the current debates.

EDIT: It will pass 0.0463 au (6.93 million km and 18 lunar distances). Near enough worry some people, I'd say.

EDIT2: I meant my 2nd or 3rd year here.

NASA should blow it up when it is a lot farther from earth. So it doesn't threat us again!!

That is a very bad idea, blowing up an asteroid so close to the Earth could result in major catastrophes. One, there is a chance that, due to the large size, the gravity will just regroup the pieces of asteroid and Help in no way whatsoever.
Two, it is also possible that the asteroid will split into deadly shards scattered in all directions, flinging to the nearest gravitational body, Earth, therefore making a true doomsday.
