What is the time frame between the 2 pics? Also, is the missing part in the middle the earth and what about the pixelated blue line/beam, is it a wrap-around seam?

posted on May, 28 2004 @ 12:35 AM
you can see the pics? couse i can't its only empty square with red cross on the upper left corner, typical image missing.......

doh maybe i have java problems

NothingMakesSense - Thats a nice link on the effects of the asteroid, very cool.

What do you do with the "ATS Points"?

posted on May, 28 2004 @ 12:45 AM
You use the ATS points to do things like get funky backgrounds and avitars etc. I think it cost me 250 points to use a picture next to my name. Also enough points will get you into forums that you cant access.

Look up on the top where it says MemberCenter (u2u) You go there, then a little tab on the left that says ats store.

Tell you what, if I die from an asteroid in June you can have my

As my precious post are we talking aboit ITOKAWA asteroid?

I wote:wait you lost me a bit we are talking of the "25143 Itokawa (1998 SF36)" asteroid right?

According to NASA's "Ephemeris generator" it will miss us for 0.0129105546 AU (Astronomical Units) or for 5 LS (lunar distance)

on date 26th or 27th June 2004.

1 AU = 149,597,871 kilometers
1 LD = 384,401 kilometers
1 LD also equals 0.00256 AU

Date__(UT)__HR:MN R.A._(ICRF/J2000.0)_DEC APmag r rdot delta deldot S-T-O Cnst

2004-Jun-26 20:00 06 05 29.07 -56 17 28.5 13.05 1.0143442660 5.22842 0.0128971142 0.00154 99.5714 Pic


So the closes distance from earth is 0.0128971142 AU

another site (Japanese) also brings up this facts:

ITOKAWA will gradually close to earth and, on June 26, 2004, it will be closest to earth with distance of 0.013AU (about 1.95 million km). But, unfortunately, it will be then located at the south hemisphere. It is estimated that the asteroid will become about twelfth magnitude (about 1,500 times brighter compared to the present).


Here are the pics:

i mean it will miss us for about 900.000 kilometers, even if that is a lie quarter of that number is 200.000 thats pretty far .......

Ok, so I found this link in another thread, and went to it, and, well, read for yourself:

I advanced the Itokawa comet all the way up to where it seems to make its closest brush with Earth, and it seems to miss us to the "South", or by going "underneath" Earth. Before you all jump on me saying there is no "South" in space, Im speaking in relative terms, so keep your flames to yourself.

However, this has disturbed me, in light of all AB has said. Ive read all the debunking posts, and in fact, every post on this whole episode I could get my eyes on, and done my best not to believe a word of it.

To see for yourself, go to
Advance the simulator to June 23rd, center on Earth, zoom all the way in, and make the Earths orbit horizontal. Youll see what I mean.

Now I'm all freaked out again. #.

Edit: Damn typos

I don' think AB was talking about Comet Itokawa. He mentioned 2 asteroids and an anomaly. Comet Itokawa does get close to the earth severl times during the next 7 years. The animation was pretty FREAKY!


posted on May, 28 2004 @ 04:36 AM
Yes the orbit simulator and closes approach is on 27th june not 23th go step by step and you will see and it says that then wil be 0.0129 AU from the earth and thats far away. Just look at my post on page 18 i think, i bringed the Ephemeris generator that is even more precise then this Orbit simulator so according to nasa and all other bigger astrnomes it will miss us. Didnt you saw my last post?

posted on May, 28 2004 @ 04:48 AM
Yes, I saw your post, I just thought this was easier to see, IMO. Not to discredit you, I just felt I could see it a bit better like this.

posted on May, 28 2004 @ 04:54 AM
Another really cool article that seems to pertain to the whole "dust cloud" theory that AB was talking about, in reference to the Middle Ages. Freaky, freaky, freaky.

when we die, we die, i just hope i have the heads up

And there are not 2 large iron chunks travelling with it and it's not enveloped in a dust cloud from a supernova unlike our Aussie Bloke seems to be. Take another hit, AB!

So, he might be talking about seomthing else.

No one has answered my question: did those impact points come from AB himself?

posted on May, 28 2004 @ 07:27 AM
It seems so. Anyone? if that is right then there is no possible reason to beleave him. (IMPO of course)

posted on May, 28 2004 @ 08:39 AM
Something is seriously happening here. Why would they move 7 aircraft carriers out of NorFolk Virginia? Just look at the impact map and you will have the answer!!!

Navy to Deploy Carrier Groups to Test Rapid Readiness...

This is really looking bad people!!!

An earthquake of Magnitude 6.2 has just hit The city of Sari in Northern Iran. Wonder if there'll be any more in the coming weeks. Check ATSNN

A couple nitpicks about the data you used. First the speed of the supposed incoming objects was given in miles per hour (in the post on page 4 or so) not kilometers per second. Making the conversion, it should be approximately 100km/s, not 222000km/s

Second, the density you used (again taken directly from the aforementioned post on page 4-ish) was the lb/ft^3, adjusting to km/m^3 you get close enough to 1500 to use the porous rock pre-set on the simulator. (Close enough for "will-my-house-be-standing calculations", if you're an astronomy grad student you'd probably better have it calculated to the 23rd decimal just to be safe

With those adjustments, it's slightly less cataclysmic. Not fun, but a little better:

Impact Effects
Robert Marcus, H. Jay Melosh, and Gareth Collins
Your Inputs:
Distance from Impact: 1000.00 km = 621.00 miles
Projectile Diameter: 1818.55 m = 5964.86 ft = 1.13 miles
Projectile Density: 1500 kg/m3
Impact Velocity: 99.82 km/s = 61.99 miles/s
Impact Angle: 45 degrees
Target Density: 1500 kg/m3
Target Type: Competent Rock or saturated soil
2.35 x 1022 Joules = 5.62 x 106 MegaTons TNT
The average interval between impacts of this size somewhere on Earth is 1.7 x 107years
Crater Size:
What does this mean?

Transient Crater Diameter: 34.59 km = 21.48 miles
Final Crater Diameter: 55.15 km = 34.25 miles
The crater formed is a complex crater.
Thermal Radiation:
What does this mean?

The fireball is below the horizon. There is no direct thermal radiation.
Seismic Effects:
What does this mean?

The major seismic shaking will arrive at approximately 200.0 seconds.
Richter Scale Magnitude: 9.1
Mercalli Scale Intensity at a distance of 1000 km:

III. Felt indoors. Hanging objects swing. Vibration like passing of light trucks. Duration estimated. may not be recognized as an earthquake.

IV. Hanging objects swing. Vibration like passing of heavy trucks; or sensation of a jolt like a heavy ball striking the walls. Standing motor cars rock. Windows, dishes, doors rattle. Glasses clink. Crockery clashes. In the upper range of IV wooden walls and frame creak.

What does this mean?

The ejecta will arrive approximately 494.4 seconds after the impact.
Average Ejecta Thickness: 1.5 cm = 0.59 inches
Mean Fragment Diameter: 820 micrometers = 32.29 1/1000 of an inch

Air Blast:
What does this mean?

The air blast will arrive at approximately 3333.3 seconds.
Peak Overpressure: 28220.4 Pa = 0.2822 bars = 4.0073 psi
Max wind velocity: 54.3 m/s = 121.4 mph
Sound Intensity: 89 dB (Loud as heavy traffic)
Damage Description:

Glass windows will shatter.

About 30 percent of trees blown down; remainder have some branches and leaves blown off.

Carriers will be better able to cope with the tidal wave in deep water.

Son of a biotch another bit of evidence that the government is preparing for this....
