How much will the Earths gravity effect it and will it make another pass?

The next pass by earth on the round trip is due in 2029. Another close orbit encounter. If not that one then the next one after that is 2047 - could KABOOM!

I think you're thinking of another asteroid. according to wikipedia the next approach in 2029 is by Venus- unless your writing to us from Venus in which case, what are the winters like there?:

On 19 January 19 2029, 2005 YU55 will pass about 0.0023 AU (340,000 km; 210,000 mi) from Venus.[13] The close approach to Venus in 2029 will determine how close the asteroid will pass the Earth in 2041.[5] The uncertainties in the post-2029 trajectory will cause the asteroid to pass somewhere between 0.002 AU (300,000 km; 190,000 mi) and 0.3 AU from the Earth in 2041.[5] Radar astrometry in November 2011 should clarify the Earth encounter situation in 2041 and beyond.[5] As of 7 November 2011 (2011 -11-07)[update], the nominal solution shows 2005 YU55 passing 0.1 AU (15,000,000 km; 9,300,000 mi) from the Earth on 12 November 2041.

1) The force of gravity is the product of the mass of the Earth, the mass of the asteroid, and the universal gravitational constant, all divided by the square of the distance between them.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_gravitational_constant

2) Yes, if it thinks that the Earth was flirting with it.

Too bad we didn't know about this sooner. We could have quickly build a space craft ( hell it works in the movies) and launched all the bankers up there. Let the asteroid carry the assholes to some other netherworld.

I´ve heard that the cost for putting one kilo (2.2 lbs) in to orbit around the Earth is $22,500. Why would we squander that kind of cash on bankers when rope is so cheap?

Larry Summers already hit the Earth sometime in the mid 1950's, and his "fat arse" has done more damage than the entire asteroid belt could do.

If it had hit the moon or the earth I am certain that TOTUS would have blamed it on Bush.

Does that asteroid have it own fiat???? Maybe it could bail out the entire world while it flies by with payments not due until it comes back
