A statistical impact risk analysis of the data up to this point calculated that the odds of the 2036 impact at 7.07 in a billion, effectively ruling it out. The same study looked at the odds of an impact in 2068, which were calculated at 2.27 in a million.[56]
With the most recent 2015 observations, the April 12, 2068, impact probability is now 6.7 in a million (1 in 150,000), and the asteroid has a cumulative 9-in-a-million (1-in-110,000) chance of impacting Earth before 2106
we should panic

So what was the point of this forum thread again? You made a question statement, then answered it yourself, proving yourself wrong.

You sound like a tabloid's clickbait and I say this as a person who is interested in astronomy.

nice bait.
"initial observations indicated a probability of up to 2.7% that it would hit Earth on April 13, 2029"
2.7% chance!!!!! WORLDS GONNNAAA ENDDD!!!!!!!!!!!

just live ur life to the fullest, so one day if supernova errupts or blackhole snacks us, u can say son i made the best out of this experience.

Yeah but like there are multiple ways to be 100% sure to avoid it.
Chsnge it's course with
Laser/bombs/gravitation pull/rocket.
Also it's in 9 yearsb bro.

"2015 observations
As of January 2019, Apophis has not been observed since 2015, mostly because its orbit has kept it very near the Sun from the perspective of Earth. It has never been further than 60 degrees from the Sun since April 2014, and will remain so until December 2019. With the most recent 2015 observations, the April 12, 2068, impact probability is now 6.7 in a million (1 in 150,000), and the asteroid has a cumulative 9-in-a-million (1-in-110,000) chance of impacting Earth before 2106.[42]"
For asteroid impact chances, this ones' are pretty good!
