a while ago, i saw on the news that a meteor was going to hit the earth in 2019!
im not very good at knowing or remembering stuff, but i think it said that even when it goes through the earths atmosphere, it will still be a MILE long!
that means if it hits the earth, a giant dust cloud will choke everyone and if it hits the water, a huge tsunami will wipe everything out! please tell me if you know anything more or if you have any views

Sorry but anyone that comes up with fear of meteors is a fool brainwashed by the illuminati to believe in evolution theory.

Yes this is something i did hear about. back in 2002 it was first discovered

Space rock 'on collision course'






An asteroid discovered has become the most threatening object yet detected in space.
A preliminary orbit suggests that 2002 NT7 is on an impact course with Earth and could strike the planet on 1 February, 2019 - although the uncertainties are large.

Astronomers have given the object a rating on the so-called Palermo technical scale of threat of 0.06, making NT7 the first object to be given a positive value.

From its brightness, astronomers estimate it is about two kilometres wide, large enough to cause continent-wide devastation on Earth.

What happened to it? Usually these things usually get cleared of the watch list within months or even weeks of observation.

Don't worry about it PP













.......but there's still a chance it could hit us.

Seriously though


Discovered on July 9, 2002 by the LINEAR team, asteroid 2002 NT7 is in an orbit, which is highly inclined with respect to the Earth's orbit about the sun and in fact nearly intersects the orbit of the Earth. While the orbits of Earth and 2002 NT7 are close to one another at one point in their respective orbits, that does not mean that the asteroid and Earth themselves will get close to one another. Just after an asteroid like 2002 NT7 is discovered, the limited number of observations available do not allow its trajectory to be tightly constrained and the object's very uncertain future motion often allows a very low probability of an Earth impact at some future date. Just such a low probability impact has been identified for February 1, 2019 and a few subsequent dates.


I think we'll all be just fine. And if we're not, we'll be dead. And everything will be just fine.

What's the connection between meteors & the theory of evolution?
At any rate, anyone who is so easy with dismissing any idea is obviously not embracing the "Deny Ignorance" motto here...Summary dismissal is the first knee-jerk response of those who embrace ignorance.

Okay nobody worry....I've cleverly created a work of fiction that will describe the comets impact. You can all read about it Here
And lets all welcome Paranoid Pain back to the fold, from his long absence. Luckily I was able to convince him to return. Is there anything I can't do?

People worry about meteors to much. I read someplace that we have more chance of getting hit by a meteor within the time between 2019 because so many meteors are undetected. Its stupid to worry over 1 out of a million meteors all because we can see this one.

But we can prevent them from hitting is in the case of us seeing it. But most meteors are clust meteors which nukes and other methods of blowing it up would be useless.

What atmosphere? For larger than than few hundred meter sized objects atmosphere doesn't really matter, even if it breaks up in the air (like Tunguska) it's equal to biggest thermonuclear bombs.

Absolutely... I wouldn't worry about meteors because meteors are caused by that small excessive stuff from birth of solar system, like chunks of rocks, small pieces of rock and sandgrain sized stuff which are called as meteoroids. (their small size makes finding them impossible)
When they hit to atmosphere they cause meteors aka shooting stars... bigger ones like chips of rock above few centimeter size cause bolides aka fireballs.
Object is called as meteorite only when it survives to surface.
Asteroids are solar system's objects which are bigger than meteoroids, there isn't exact "standardized" size limit but at least 50 meter sized objects are generally kept clearly as asteroids.

Very true.

How true, how small.

Ahhh! surface.

ok ET, now, why has the mystery of the origin of tektites plagued scientists since anyone can care to remember?

Why is there such a inconclusive answer to their origin?

Because I've studied both the terrestrial and the extra-terrestrial views, I'm not interested in your opinion of where they came from, that is, unless you're willing to entertain an alternate answer.

Are you?

Hmm, Atomix, I missed the part where an annoying pop-up trick related to meteors. Care to enlighten us?

Yeah, don't waste our time.

Okay I know I may not have conducted myself diplomatically with you in the past, but I did say I'm sorry, didn't I?

Please don't ignore me, ok?

Just objectively look at the evidence for glass.

Take your feelings out of the equation.

Remember, "understanding is a 3-edged sword."

God Bless You, E_T..
