Congrex & European Space Agency Research Student Competition

In 2029 asteroid 99942 Apophis (2004 MN4) will flyby the Earth at a distance of about 32 000 km. This is closer than any known past or future approach by natural objects larger than about 10 meters. After a resonant flyby, the asteroid will then return towards Earth with two potential impact dates between 2036 and 2037. This close encounter with 99942 Apophis in 2029 will provide a window of opportunity for scientific and technological research. Papers will be welcomed on a variety of subjects that can be related to the theme of Apophis and small body encounters.
