Asteroid Impacts

2008: The Russians send out a mission to study the asteroid Apophis, which passes very close to Earth, from time to time. They deny any other purpose for the mission.

2012: The Asteroid Apophis strikes earth, but thanks to Russian adjustments to its orbit, no significant damage occurs.

Initial reports of a "work-related accident" in a mosque proved unfounded.

As a secondary benefit, oil, which was formerly pumped from under the ground in the region, is now economically skimmed from the surface of the new sea.
