This stone’s called Apophis it brings Apocalypse

German schoolboy, 13, corrects NASA’s asteroid figures: paper:

According to the article a 13-year-old German amateur astronomer has corrected NASA’s findings on the asteroid Apophis.

Nico Marquardt says that Apophis has a 1 in 450 chance of striking Earth instead of the 1 in 45,000 that NASA has said.

Unfortunately none of this will happen until 2036. I don’t know if I can wait that long for the Apocalypse.

Anyway NASA is now denying that Marquardt’s claim is correct so it might be a moot point anyway.
