Since 2001, 26 atomic-bomb-scale explosions have occurred in remote locations around the world, far from populated areas, made evident by a nuclear weapons test warning network. In a recent press release B612 Foundation CEO Ed Lu states:


According to this group of astronauts, the only reason there hasn't been a city-killer asteroid over the past decade is because of "blind luck."

They calculate that the earth has experienced 3 to 10 times more asteroid impacts than thought and its been blind luck that these explosions have occurred over remote areas rather than over large cities.

Astronauts reveal sobering data about asteroid impacts



"This network has detected 26 multi-kiloton explosions since 2001, all of which are due to asteroid impacts. It shows that asteroid impacts are NOT rare—but actually 3-10 times more common than we previously thought. The fact that none of these asteroid impacts shown in the video was detected in advance is proof that the only thing preventing a catastrophe from a 'city-killer' sized asteroid is blind luck. The goal of the B612 Sentinel mission is to find and track asteroids decades before they hit Earth, allowing us to easily deflect them."


Just a little more evidence that these large exploding fireballs are increasing. Keep your heads up, ATS, the sky is falling!

Isn't that true about all asteroids not just the "city killers"?
Isn't the big one hitting us only a blink away?

Something like two thirds of the earth is water, then a good portion of land is uninhabited, so the likelyhood of a city strike must be quite low, though not impossible.

Hmmm, whats that whooshing soun........

Of course, we've always known the possibility is there. I think the point of this news is that the experts always said they believe there is a certain number of larger asteroids that may impact the earth, but guess what, we were wrong, there is actually 3 to 10 times more than what we thought.

Tbh city's are quite wide spread but to hit one would obviously be an incredibly lucky or rather unlucky shot

If you was to sit there looking at a globe with a pin you could stab away a few times before hitting anything, if they was as common as said here why hasn't one been caught on camera, sounds odd to me maybe they know something

We've all seen large meteorites lighting up the skies but an asteroid ? I don't think I have
