(CNN) – One of the most dangerous asteroids on record zipped close by Earth, relatively speaking, last month.
The asteroid made headlines on Thursday, when reports said there is a chance it could strike our planet in 2032.
Such a collision could unleash a force as powerful as a couple of thousand atomic bombs. But NASA says the chances it will collide with Earth then are extremely slim.
In fact, the agency says it’s 99.998 percent certain the asteroid will simply sail past us again.
The close pass it made on Sept. 16 was not a near miss. The asteroid was more than 15 times farther away than the moon.
