Asteroid flyby

http://scitechdaily.com/new-and-improved-movie-clip-of-near-earth-asteroid-1998-qe2/

Posting this because it is a little scary and also leaves a lot of questions unanswered.

1. What sort of damage would this do if it hit earth.
2. Are there building blocks of life on board from some where far far away.
3. Would our own Voyager craft end up looking like a rock after a few million years?
4. If the Voyager ended up looking like a rock is this a craft from a similar planet to earth? Which has just been in space for a long time.
