I'll be the first to admit...

Jade Helm, Shemita etc etc are all interesting and worth watching.

And although I may not agree with the idea there is a giant rack that will hit us next week... Just because NASA says there isn't doesn't give me any more hope.

It will happen eventually, so the only thing that makes me NOT believe this theory is that... well... There's too much doom porn regarding September to NOT capatlize on this kind of story. And how many of these stories have we had? ...

But when does it become the boy who cried wolf?

Yaaaaaay we're gonna die soon! Seriously though, I haven't got time to read the whole thread yet.
Sceptics, can you give me some quick odds on dying please? And believers I'll take your odds too!

But for the record, I do science over doom. I love doom, but only really trust the science side. Thanks.

Oh yeah, last minute ELE's, i like that 5hit.

Odd's of dying if an ELE hits are 100%

Odd's of dying if an ELE doesn't hit are 100%

Odd's of dying soon either way, relative to how long earth has been around, are 100%

So to sum it all up, the odd's of everyone on this board dying are 100%

I know what you meant, but just had to have a bit of fun....

NASA estimates that they've identified over 90% of all NEO's larger than 1 kilometer.

But to me, that begs the question:

How do they know they've got over 90% of them ? If you don't know something exists, how can you calculate it into your estimates ?

So... do they really know how many planet-killers are out there ?
Or are they just grasping at straws and giving it their best guesstimate ?



Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that NASA has some sooper seekrit nefarious agenda going on or anything like that... I'm just asking the questions that, to me, are simple common sense questions to ponder.



Great post, it is typical scientific method lunacy, mixed in with some gut feelings and hardcoded with only what they have seen with their own eyes.

Never mind the fact they have not seen even a percentage point of the surrounding area,

The statistics come from visually acquired and radar acquired and calculating the probabilities given the range and accuracy of each. The 90% comes from the resulting bell curve. It is not concrete, but is probably quite accurate.
Again, the big hole is in the direction of the Sun, and most of that is represented in the missing 10%.

This could happen at any moment. There are posters here that believe NASA monitor the skies when the truth of the matter is they don't monitor 'all' of the skies, they can't. In fact they are already failing an ongoing project that by 2020; 90% of nearby potentially dangerous asteroids (larger than 460 feet in diameter) are meant to be found and monitored. They are failing this because of funding, because it's poorly coordinated and poorly managed i.e. the commitment isn't there.

They are not hitting the target, and by the sounds of it they are nowhere near it, but more worryingly they cannot even guess-timate the percentage they are successful in monitoring. In July of last year they released a statement saying they found 11,230 neo's. The fact is that there are always going to be more. With the small percentage of the sky they are monitoring there is absolutey no hope that NASA will be 'well prepared' for every single potentially dangerous asteroid. They won't even be able to see half of them in my opinion. The space surrounding our planet is infinite.

You do not apparently understand that every second earth and the rest of our planets, (led by the sun) are screaming through uncharted space at 52,000 miles an hour.

This is why we see so many unexpected sun diving Comets on SOHO. NASA and local Astronomers don't have a clue when they cant see what is ahead of us.

At anytime, earth could ram right into another object and they would not see it coming till its way to late. The ICBM early warning radars would be the only thing to see it but by time the operators could say anything it would be exploding over a country.

Not even close. Of course, nobody saw the Russian meteor coming…

Thing is a planet killer with our name on it would have been picked up on by a plethora of "experts" by now.


You mean like the ATS resident 'expert' NASA 'consultant' ngchunter?

Didn't everyone miss the one that hit Russia not too long ago?


Yeah, but ones of that size are small. We're talking ones that are big enough to produce bigger result than lots of broken windows.


Please do not insult our intelligence by that red herring.

There was much more damage than 'a lot of broken windows.'

surely this would be reason enough to start a species survival contingency plan! start sending lots and lots of us into space
we cant keep all of our eggs in one basket !

The break-away colonies have that covered.

Well, if NASA has given the all clear, I guess that means we're safe. Being that they are so very reliable and trustworthy.

I wonder what it's like to turn your brain off like a lot of people do. Must make life a lot easier.

My question is are we not advanced enough to install a motion detector of satellites within our solar system that can detect and warn us and track incoming asteroids?

a reply to: Emerys

No. We are not advanced enough to do that. What we are advanced enough to do is this, which actually uses "motion detectors" of sorts.

Kind of funny you say that considering one of the 9/23 hints was the speeding train crash. The train that crashed near Philadelphia crashed at 9:23 ... speeding, out of control train.

Still don't see an asteroid coming, but I guess that's the point. If it's really going to happen, no one will until it's too late.

So "they" planned the train crash to occur at that minute in order to do...what?

Sorry if this was posted before, but to all the people who say 'with all the ameteurs and experts looking at the sky, there's no way we wouldn't see one coming' I have this to say:

They didn't see the Chelyabinsk meteor in 2013.
