Maybe astroid impacts are the least of our worries.

Solar storms don't seem to get the attention they deserve:
www.nasa.gov...
www.nasa.gov...
www.nasa.gov...

Nor do Galactic Core Explosions:
www.etheric.com...
www.spacedaily.com...

The following articles indicates that a nearby supernova could cause mass extinction on Earth:
history.nasa.gov...

Events such as these could explain major mass extinctions in the history of our planet (the ones that cannot be attributed to astroids). Two major one include the ones during the Ordovician Period and the Permian Period; roughly 500 million and 300 million years ago.

We could have a serious Nemesis on our hands.

What is everyone's take on this?

I reciently read an article in WIRED that went over some of this, it's interesting stuff. Mother Earth didn't exactly settle in the best area of space lol.

Personally though I think that the thing that kills us, we're not even going to see comming, and it'll just blindside us some idle Thursday evening.

Actually they found off the coast of Australia an impact that explains what happend 300 million years ago. So that's 1 known and 1 highly suspected massive extinction due to meteorites.

These things don't get attention because we (humanity) stand no chance of preventing them.

We are now at a point that our technology can at least hope to avert simple NEO collisions.

Since the sun, gallactic center, and supernovas wouldn't even flicker if we unleashed the energy of every weapons on the planet at them. what is the point of worrying?

If it is going to happen it will happen. Putting money and time into watching, just for the sake of knowing doomsday is comming is a waste. It is especially wasteful if that time and money could have been used to prevent something more simple like a big asteroid... or a plague.

There are not only many other thing that could do us all in that we don't talk about, but infinite more we don't even know about.

For example... Space, not just outter space, but the space withing the atoms that make up our body, could be at an excited energy state and drop in energy effectivly destroying known reality. Do I sit around and worry about it? No, cause if it happen, even with warning, there is no way to stop it.

Least of our worries? No, we can attempt prevention, they are at the top of the list.

Well, hopefully we can at least do something about asteroids one day... as for solar storms and supernovae, those are insanely rare, and there's not a darn thing we can do about those anyway... so you know the old saying, "Don't worry about what you can change, and focus on the things you can change!"

Hey coincidentily, "Deep Impact" is on KIRO-TV in Seattle tonight. Maybe they read this website or know something we don't?


Just adding fuel to the fire.
