So, Is the World Going to End in 2135?

...probably not. The actual odds of Bennu hitting the Earth are 1 in 2,700 - although if it did hit it could be a global catastrophe.

And the actual time when it might hit is "somewhere between 2175 and 2199.

So, even if life extension means we're all still alive, it's probably not going to hit.

The reason this is all coming up is because NASA is using this asteroid to do the math on space defense - they're designing a hypothetical mission to divert Bennu if it does decide to put us in the crosshairs.

Which is making everyone think it's going to hit us.
