I'd absolutely crap myself,
Then see if any aliens would come and save us,
But i wouldnt save humans if i was an alien,
I'd build a massive underground shelter with lots of tins on beans,
I'm not religious but id turn to all religions if it would help me.
Hope that helps,

Hi im new to ats, i thought id ask a question about something brought up all the time.
If say the goverment announced that there is a planet threatening comet/asteroid headed this way and we only have a few months to act (say it was hidden from view until now or something),
What would be the step?
civilian underground shelters?
missiles sent into space to deflect it?
I know it can be argued that there are potentialy dangerous asteroids all the time out there, but what if one was for certain locked heading dead centre for earth.....
would appreciate thoughts/answers
as we have quiet a few lurking dangerously in our solar system, especially the one that narrowly missed last week.. its due to come back in about 20 years as it hasnt left orbit

The only problem with this guy's presentation regarding the object apparently twice the size of Jupiter is perspective. For all we know the object in question could have been a lot closer to the SOHO camera than we think giving the illusion that it was very large when in fact it wasn't. Also, something that size would have been seen from around the globe by anyone yet not one mention of any astronomers reporting it at all.
Plait said the idea that NEAT is as big as a planet is just plain wrong.
"The actual comet itself, the chunk of rock and ice, is only a few miles across," he said. "What we see in the [SOHO] images is the cloud of gas surrounding the nucleus, evaporated off the surface by the heat of the Sun. That cloud is huge, but the comet itself is tiny."
