***Doom Porn Alert***

"Shock as NASA confirms asteroid TWO MILES wide will pass close to Earth in 48 HOURS"

Oh my...

Don't worry folks, this world killer will pass us this time. Still waiting to see all the doom porn threads however. It also has an interesting number which should raise some eyebrows.


It should fly safely past earth on Saturday, but astronomers are keeping a close eye on 86666 (2000 FL10) which, according to NASA, will be one of the biggest to pass close to our planet in recent times.

Just goes to show how little time we may have.
Two days notice? could they even launch bombs at it in this time?.
Not saying bombs would work but still.

The big ones dont worry me, It's the ones about the size of a small fridge that creep me out. Came you imagine if one crashed trough your roof whilst you were tucked up in bed slicing your legs off from the knees down.

That's a no-no as even if it is destroyed, it just means more peices will probably hit.


I notice it's The Express again, see my reply to this thread.

You have a better chance of winning the lottery. You should start playing today and let me know if you strike it rich, then I would worry about your chances of getting struck by a space object.

They gotta hit somewhere.

At least a 10 minute montage should do the trick. That usually works for most disaster movies.

Maybe it's better for humanity to not know what hit 'em. Just like you never will hear the headshot which kills you.

There would be no slicing. Slicing is clean, and relatively painless. If a small asteroid hit your legs while sleeping, it would most likely drag you down into the crater it creates, crushing and burning your entire body from the legs up as it went.

Sweet dreams!

On topic - Maybe the September 24th predictions were accurate, but a few days off! Yay!

2000 FL10 means it was discovered in 2000.

Should we be worried about the tail of debris it carries?

I mean, if we can land a rocket on a comet....

Why wouldnt we be able to nuke an asteroid?

A nuclear explosion in the vacuum of space? I can see that knocking it well off its course.

This asteroid is not new, we've known about it for 15 years! Some fool decided to write a completely BS article on a random asteroid in the close approach list, one we've known about for 15 years, and one which is going to be more than 60 times the distance to the moon at closest approach! That's not a near miss at all!

No. Quit watching hollywood. Real astronomy is not like the movies. This is not a comet and it does not have a trail of debris.
