Nope, that's not what they say :p

Actually, the asteroid Apophis has not been blown up. It's still traveling in space, completely intact. The only thing that changed is that we discovered it will not crash onto the Earth. We are the ones who won't be blown up by Apophis. And that's good news.

Of course we could still discover another asteroid that would kill us all. Or Apophis could hit the Earth some time after 2036. They say it could be in 2068, even if the chances are low.

The only "spatial" event that will occur soon and that I can think of is actually a quite beautiful one that won't kill us at all. There is a comet called Ison that will come close to the Sun (not the Earth, we are safe! Very Happy) by the end of 2013. And while approaching the Sun, it will begin to shine. A lot. In November, it could (and I said COULD, that's important) be so bright that it would offer our eyes a magnificent show in the night sky. However, the comet could also be simply disintegrated by the sun and offer our eyes nothing at all. We'll see.

You may have noticed I like astronomy.
