Not quite as close as that thing that came to visit Russia :p Are there any plans for us to try and retrieve samples from this comet?

I heard that it's not a good idea to break apart a big asteroid, once we would have many babies asteroids coming in our direction. I hope American government knows that!

One day it WILL happen, a massive collision, hopefully not. Nature works in Millions of years and are we due for a huge impact? The way we treat our planet, I am sorry to say, we deserve it.
