Apologies if I alarmed everyone.

But lets face facts. .



I honestly believe, as a rational, sane, board certified bunny, that now is the time to panic.

I say we start building a spaceship to go out and greet this sucker.

Who knows, in 800 years, we may just have it done.

Go NASA!

If we leave it to NASA, we'll still be having meeting about the new "logo" when the asteroid hits!

Wait.. you mean, we don't send our best deep sea drilling team in the world to the asteroid by experimental rockets? To drill a hole in the asteroid so that we could blow it up from the internals??

yeah I just got back from running down the street screaming and waving my arms about. Kinda winded actually. Got some strange looks but feel like I have done a public service.

sooo, we only have 866 years to develop the means to stop it?
Call me an optimist but I think we can do, GO TEAM!

University of Tennessee? Oh Crap! Nothing good can come of this. I can just see it now...

"Hey Y'all! Watch this!"

By that time we probably will have the technology to vaporize it, and we'll probably do it from our interstellar space ships. They may even charge tickets for the flight and watch them vaporize it! Most likely it won't be in the form of cash. lol

If it's in the form of dollars I think we'll have far bigger worries than an asteroid!

March 16, 2880?

Ok, I'll keep that day clear on my calendar....

I mean,come on!
It's only good doom porn if it's about to happen soon.
The way things are going I'm not so sure humans will live to see that day.

Who in my family would witness that?
My great great great great,... ah forget it.

Thanks for sharing though, I love to read about things like this.
I'm pretty sure if humans survive that long, scientists will have the technology to take care of it .

AH, but this is not a problem that you or I have anything at all to do with. Did our evil SUVs make this giant asteroid? If not, then why presume to think you or I can do anything to change its course? You might as well get all fussed over the fact that water is wet.

Asteroids crash into planets. It's what they do. You can bet the dinosaurs weren't stressing over it right up until it hit the planet, and I will not be giving myself ulcers over it, either.

If we leave it to NASA, they'll still be in the middle of the Muslim outreach.

Well, I got of the phone with this guy from NASA. He assures me that if they build enough little satellites that can land on the asteroid and deploy these mylar sails that solar winds will be caught by the mylar sails ...

Yeah, I thought it sounded crappy, too.

I think this sounds like a much better approach.



And if that fails ... we can always build large wooden badgers ...

There's plenty of things we could do with that much warning. Even if the UN or some global space initiative just allocated investment funding to grow and develop a think tank on the issue, we could have this solved with plenty of time to spare and at a tiny cost.

Waiting until it's within your lifetime would be too late or, at the very least, incredibly costly. The organization that set up the foundations of saving the world hundreds of years in advance would be heralded in history for the rest of humanity's existence.

I'm in a doom mood today. Isn't it strange that doom and mood are backwards?

By the time that asteroid gets close we and eight generations of our children will be gone. But NASA is already probably applying to get funding for it. Early bird gets the worm.

Don't we have an asteroid coming in the forties? Seems strange talking about future forties. Seems like we should be having aanother world war in the 2040s, had one in the nineteen hundreds. Just planning future doom porn.

And starting to do it now wouldn't be incredibly costly? Do you realize how much graft and corruption will be in any program that is supposed to avert a doom 8 generations out that has only a 1 and 300 chance of actually happening?

In less than 800 years we will have robotic ships eating asteroids for the resources in them, so this will likely become a short snack someday.
