Chief of the Russian Space Agency announced yesterday for Russian journalists, that Russia is preparing the mission "Apophis." Mission "Apophis" involves flying robotic probes to the asteroid Apophis (2004 MN4) to be installed on this asteroid the radiobeacon. According to new data, the asteroid Apophis will approach to the Earth in 2029 to 28 900 kilometers. Earlier, the former head of the Russian Space Agency in an interview on the radio station "Voice of Russia" stated that: "... we are talking about people's lives. It is better to pay a few hundred million dollars and make a system, that does not will bring before the collision, rather than wait until it happens, and hundreds of thoUSAnds of people will die ". According to Russian scientists, the asteroid Apophis may fall into the Atlantic or Pacific oceans, off the coast of the United States, in this case rises a powerful tSunami, that will wash away coastal towns at a distance of 3 kilometers off the coast. energy of collision with Apophis estimate 1000 megatons of TNT (1,000 Mt TNT). It is assumed, that the fixed radiobeacon on Apophis will accurately calculate its orbit to approach to the Earth in 2029. Russia is going to put a radiobeacon on the asteroid Apophis in 2013, Russian scientists have noted, that successful correction of the asteroid's orbit is possible with the availability of reliable knowledge of the physical properties of the asteroid Apophis and offer this program to develop an international ground-based measurements of the asteroid during the period from 2013 to 2029.
