Sorry if this has been posted before. I am merely pointing out similarities between the two. If I'm wrong about something please correct me. So let's
I have been watching Deep Impact . It remarkably mirrors our current situation with comet elenin. In the movie the comet is called elle and it stands
for extinction level event. The name elle was used as sort of a cover or subliminal message. Elijah Woods's character is named Leo and he was the
first to discover the comet. The other discovers died in a car crash. The president is black. At one point at the party before the launch one of the
astronauts chosen for the mission explains to a little boy about the comet releasing toxic gas when the sun hits the surface, I'm guessing that he was
referring to the comet. This is not as significant because that is something we already knew comets do. When asked why this information wasn't
released sooner the president says we did not know if we could stop it "they saw no reason to alarm the planet". In the movie they developed a new
rocket that contains a nuclear reactor called Orion. NASA has been testing one such rocket already called Ares. One of it's main purposes is to make
it easier for us to get to Mars...the name of that "Mars" mission is Orion. Once the Ares rocket couples with the Orion capsule the mission will be
referred to simply as Orion. The rocket from movie also has six burners that they use after the first stage rocket has been used, just like Ares.
Fast forward a bit and we currently have a comet called Elenin on the way. It was discovered by a man named LEOnid ELEnin. As far as I know, the
calculations are still being made to see how close it will come to Earth. Leonid is also the name of a meteor shower and where do most meteors come
from? Well for the most part, from pieces of comets...
So if I die in a car wreck in the next few days its because I said too much or my fiance was driving.
