2007 TU24 will be the closest currently known approach by a potentially hazardous asteroid of this size or larger until 2027 and the average interval between actual Earth impacts for an object of this size would be about 37,000 years. This time 2007 TU24 will don’t hit and will moves further from Earth (we hope so…).
