Apophis specific action team report
This report about Asteroid (99942) Apophis's Earth close approach on April 13, 2029 was generated by a Specific Action Team (SAT) formed by the Small Body Assessment Group (SBAG) at the request of NASAs Planetary Science Division (PSD). The SAT assessed the current predictions for the effects that may occur due to the close encounter, evaluated observing capabilities, and identified possible investigations then sorted them into priority categories. In addition, the SAT evaluated whether or not a spacecraft sent to Apophis could increase the risk of a future Earth impact.
