It's an eyeopener when you realize how such a relatively small object can cause such catastrophic damage when traveling at such high speeds from space.... I imagine we'd be in a spot of bother if a slightly larger asteroid actually hit the earth...

For those, who asked, when was this asteroid discovered:


Asteroid 2011 MD was discovered Wednesday (June 22) by LINEAR, a pair of robotic telescopes in New Mexico that scan the skies for near-Earth asteroids.

Source

So, only 5 days before it passes by. It shows well, that noone can know everything that goes on around us and Universe has many surprises.

5-20 meters-sized asteroid will probably burn in atmosphere, but in that case, it could produce daytime flare, but otherwise you can only see it with good telescope, not naked-eye object, and only brief time.

Now why would they want to make incoming space rocks CLASSIFIED?


It's not the space rocks that are classified, it's the spy satellites that spot them! Data from other sources is still readily available.

Let it hit...we need a false flag event or "a crisis to not let go to waste"

Interresting! Thanks for posting this I had no idea this was happening. Pretty cool, and good idea posting it here, not as many people will be in here talking in tongues over it like they would in the doomsday world.

I just hope those calculaitons are correct and even if they aren't and its hits, we deserve it. Nice knowing you all lol.


I wish I could see the peices land to get my metal detector and make some money money money money, monayyyyy.. wooohooo

Elenin has about as much magnetic energy as the rocks in your garden. Its only 4 KM wide or so. Not enough gravity to pull along an asteroid never mind a moon.

So with a diameter of 5-20m, what would an impact with the earth's surface (whether on water or ground) look like?

Anything aside from a big ass explosion and subsequent crater?


Also, any chance I would be able to catch some small glimpse from the east coast? (im guessing not)

Sarcastically...
Someday one will actually hit the Earth, and I will be celebrating out in the yard. After watching how society has turned to crap, humanity deserves a swift kick in the complexity. Maybe people will become more tolerant after 90% of the population vanishes.

if it is really something dangerous, do you think you would know anything about it?

don't worry, NASA is hiding the scary stuff from the public.

and don't tell me this asteroid is "not dangerous" when they are not even sure about the size of it.

these scientists are not "know-all" and they actually know very little about life, Earth and Space.

do you know the exact size of the comet Elenin and what it is made of?

I don't think so.

is it not possible that the asteroid is not an asteroid at all? if it comes close to the south pole maybe they're dropping some people off through the southern opening, or maybe taking them home? haha don't know, crazy assumption though

Sure... that is why NASA doesn't spot them till they are almost on top of us... some they don't even see until they have already passed us.

But no worries... the one that will wipe us out... we will see that one coming in time to kiss your butt good bye

Wow, awesome and informative thread.

It's too bad ATS economic imperative encourages them to keep up the more sensation threads predicting this will zOMG kill us all! instead of ones like this.

Yeah a few years back they spotted one after it passed us real close and everyone thought it would slam into Mars. In fact ATSer's were cheering for it to hit Mars

ATS viewers pick which thread will stay popular.. and sensational titles really work
If you want an informative thread to survive, make sure you put a flashy title on it. I have tested this many times on ATS

It's human nature
If you can't beat it... use it
