I know there is another thread about the end of the world by asteroid collision, but that was by some mad Aussie bloke nobody knows.
This is on the BBC website (UK), which in my eyes is quite a reliable source


news.bbc.co.uk...

Interesting---but i'm sure we'll dodge the bullet again. But then again you never know, our planet can't be lucky enough to stay out of harms way forever.

Look at the date of the article.
It's old. They recalculated and found the asteroid has little chance of hitting earth.
Here's articles after they figured it would miss:
www.planetary.org...
neo.jpl.nasa.gov...


Another asteroid will be even closer, and close enough to actually be visible with naked eye in 2029....
www.cnn.com...



The 2029 event will be the closest brush by a good-sized asteroid known to occur. The rock will pass Earth inside the orbits of some satellites. No other asteroid has ever been clearly visible to the unaided eye.

I would hope we could find technology to avoid any possible outer space rocks from dashing our future. Of course, it is bound to happen and history shows it has already. I wonder if gov'ts around the world would let their people know if impending doom or not. Sometimes it may just be better to not know then wait and worry.

I think the "Ball of Redemption" is on its way... I guess we humans deserve it.

The first two articles are on the 2019 asteroid, only the last one talks about the 2029 one.


2019....2029.....hmmm......
Should we be concerned with 2009 or 2039?

Realistically I don't think they would disclose knowledge of a meteor or anything else striking the Earth. This would cause world wide panic. Even if it is as far away as 2029.

Perhaps this is what Project Deep Impact is really about. Deep Impact is going to smash into a comet. Maybe its practice for hitting a asteroid on a collision course with Earth. Perhaps its not really targeted for a comet but the asteroid headed for us.

I feel that we would not know about such a predicted collision until it was too late.

Look at the Link below it gives 3 objects that are a lot more likely to hit the earth.

The 2002 NT7 object had a +0.06 probability of impact according to the Torino scale, the three in the link have a +1 probability of impact thats 16 times more likely!!

The world will go on with or without us. To worry is futile.

Yeah but what about my stuff?


This orbiting hunk of rock may survive but life on Earth may not.
If all the water evaporates into space, then thats it. No chance of life again.

Game over.

Its just a Space Peanut, nothing to worry about folks

Are we building a super laser ray machine on the top of Mount Everest to stop those pesky asteroids?

Or are we going to hook up a network of billions of people brain-wired to "mentally" destroy the asteroids?

Or just we are going to have the old stand-by: strapped several nuclear warheads on Titan rockets and shoot at 'em?
