Don't worry, you'll have plenty of time to prepare for this disaster, because it could happen 3.5 billion years from now... I just hope FEMA does a better job at handling that disaster than they did after hurricane Katrina. I'll also have to remember to sell my house before the imminent disaster brings down the property value...

This is an interesting article.

Don't worry, the Andromeda Galaxy is on it's way to collide with our Milky Way Galaxy also, and that could happen around the same time Venus collides with earth... give or take 100 million years.

Would you believe it. My insurance has an exemption clause for interplanetary collisions.

What a minute,,,,, they knew this and can predict it ~ yet nobody figured out that the economy would dump nine months ago? Go figure! I want to talk to someone in authority about this issue.
