Submission + - Asteroid Collision in 2036: U.N. to Debate Impact

studpuppy writes: "The New Zealand Herald is reporting that the Earth is almost certain to be hit by an Asteroid in 2036, and are asking the U.N. to consider their plan to save the world. In related news, Ben Affleck has indicated his calendar is clear for the next 30 years or so.

Quote: A group of former astronauts and cosmonauts is warning that at least one asteroid already identified in outer space is on a path that could indeed see it colliding with our planet in 2036... Specifically, members of the Association of Space Explorers are planning a series of meetings over the next two years, to be attended by diplomats, astronomers, astronauts and engineers, to draft an international treaty on address the threat. It will be presented to the UN for adoption in 2009."
