According to the latest findings of NASA, a huge asteroid measuring almost 350 meters is expected to pass very close to our planet by 2029. The asteroid bears the designation number 99942, while scientists have named it Apophis (the Greek name for the ancient Egyptian deity which embodied chaos, trying to sink the world into the darkness).\”
Could its name be coincidental, then? Apophis…
