I wish NASA echo JPL was up... echo.jpl.nasa.gov...

To my best knowledge (which is not complete in any way about astronomy and astrometrics) the "TU" in 2007TU24 is standard within the "unnumbered object list" (new stuff found) letters and digits are assigned in alpha-numeric progressions until the IAF (I believe) assigns permanent numbers.

But I did find something for 32-bits Windows CCD astronomy people for next time and it's the right price... the hardware is expensive enough as it is... check the dosh on an 8" Celestron. Not the sort of thing you can get at a flea-market or Wal-Mart.

From the Astrometrica site:

"When you can measure what you are speaking about,
and express it in numbers, you know something about it;
but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers,
your knowledge of it is of a meager and unsatisfactory kind:
it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely,
in your thoughts, advanced to the stage of science."

William Thomson, Lord Kelvin of Largs (1824-1907)

Still nothing from NEODys. I suspect there may not be another data computation before the event... they are likely kinda busy. LOL. I'll keep checking.

You haven't been to my city then. Who do you think pays for uninsured people who have to go to the doctor? The government does, we do. I work for literally countless doctors and you would not believe how many illegal aliens come in just to get healthcare. I see it many times a day on a daily basis. They shouldn't be here in the first place. I say they should stay there. We have to take care of our own HERE before people go and start letting these guys over.

Vic.....

Thank you so much for continuing your vigil. I CANNOT believe that NASA JPL is down!

It is truly unbelievable....that just adds fuel to the fire.

Peace.

Edit: and as someone said earlier....where is the video of this pretty rock skimming by. We could watch the one on Mars but one this close they have not opened a window to watch...they choose to just shut down the entire website instead! Pfffff.....again.

Sorry for the off-topic-ness. I think I am heading off to bed, the baby is finally asleep. I just might be back up again in a few hours, depending on how hard I snooze
Goodnight V. Night all.

Is this really it? Have we all accepted the thought that something bad is going to happen? Where are the people at saying that we're all just a bunch of nuts and nothing is going to happen? Can we get one of those to post right about now?
I need a shot of skepticism.

NURSE!!!!

Have you noticed the spikes on the graphs below? The overall pressure is up and steady on the chart to the right.

What?

I started a thread just a bit ago about this and learned that it had already been discussed here. I really thought I was sweet......for about a minute but anyway here are some of the comparison shots from the website you (and I) have been looking at:

Hello! I've posted this before! The "runaway planet...cosmic destruction" part always made me wet myself.

Do you see where the Earth is covered mostly by red lines? The very latest image has it covered by the blue-greensih lines. If that indicates polarity I think I understand that it could disrupt things here on the Earth.

Oh No!

Reruns already?


What's really depressing is, I remember that from when it was new...

So something is going to happen?

I haven't checked for about the past 40 pages or so.

Whats the state of things? Can someone summarize it for me?

ok I am convinced, something is going to happen , but it may be difficult to determine what kind of scale until it actually passes by us. I am on Mountain Time, how many hours do I have left before I head to the hills?

2 cents, take a look at how almost 2/3 of the field are the bluegreen lines. The red seem to be losing the battle.

Vic and others, I'm just going to ask the question straight up since the NASA website is down and all....etc., etc., etc.

Are We (someone) running a test to attempt to redirect this asteroid utilizing one or more of the technologies that have been discussed in this thread?

I'm not suggesting that it is on a collision course and it HAS to be moved...I'm suggesting someone might want to prove that it can be done.

Thoughts? Gut instinct? Top Secret Knowledge? Anyone?

Peace.
