Its name may be sexy as all hell, but (101955) 1999 RQ36 isn’t about to show earthlings any love. No sir. The asteroid, measuring 510 meters across, is on a sort-of collision course with Earth, according to a recent report published in Icarus.

“The total impact probability of asteroid ‘(101955) 1999 RQ36’ can be estimated in 0.00092 — approximately one-in-a-thousand chance — but what is most surprising is that over half of this chance (0.00054) corresponds to 2182,” explains María Eugenia Sansaturio, of Spain’s Universidad de Valladolid (UVA) and co-author of the international NEO study.
