From esteemed astronomer Phil Plait comes his views on the popular movie plots of Armageddon, Deep Impact, Asteroid,
and Doomsday Rock
plots about the effects of an asteroid smashing into earth.
With all the recent talk on ATS about Comet Elenin, Planet X,Y,Z, Nibiru, and such I wanted to add a solidly scientific mind into the mix.
I found his down to earth and funny approach to debunking these movie plots an entertaining and informative read. I hope you do too.
My main takeaway was that we have plenty of time to spot something large enough to destroy us. And new theories exist to divert dangerous extinction
level events from happening.
