All this Elenin stuff is getting ridiculous. This comet is going to have absolutely no bearing on Earth. I do not know why, or how all of this started, but seriously people....Get you facts straight and stop fear mongering. If there is a comet people should be worrying about it is 2009 BD, which will be at its closes approach on June 2nd. This comet is predicted to be TWICE the size as Elenin, and will actually fly between the Earth and the Moon at around .90 LD (Lunar distance). And yet, it will still be around 216,000 miles away. What people should be worrying about is the possibility of this comet colliding with our moon. Elenin poses absolutely no threat to Earth.edit on 22-5-2011 by Yfactor1980 because: (no reason given)

Yes, it does matter if it's a male or female surname. His surname comes from his father, therefore, it is unlikely that his last name is really Elenin.
And if you don't know the difference between Elenin and Yelenin, then you really should do more research.
