Every few months, a journalist asks a scientist about the looming threat of Armageddon. That scientist's quotes are then predictably blown out of proportion and turned into some iteration of "The End Is Nigh".

As badly as we all want an asteroid to strike us squarely in the face at this point, that probably won't be happening any time soon.
