YOU HIT THE BIG TIME YOUNG LADY, YOU ARE THE HEADLINER on ATS !!!
Speaking of DANGEROUS comets, I have had a BONE to pick with NASA for quite sometime now.
Hydrogen is a VERY common element out in space, and THEY tell us ALL comets are chunks of dirt and mostly ice, so water is common too, then in the
next breath they would RARELY admit brown dwarf comets exist aswell, they are not ice.
Anyway, ANY water that is out in space beyond that Earth's atmosphere is going to be constantly bombarded by the Sun's full radiation which MEANS
that ALL of that ice is HIGHLY RADIOACTIVE it would be mostly DEUTERIUM and TRITIUM ...
... THE HEAVY ELEMENTS USED TO BUILD THE TRIGGERING MECHANISMS FOR NUCLEAR BOMBS ...
... this would be the FIRST explosion that causes implosion to ignite the plutonium !!!!!!
Or in other words THIS is the nuclear explosion THAT IS EASY TO IGNITE !
Therefore, anytime we have meteor showers there is always the VERY SMALL potential that one of these BALLS OF ICE will enter the atmosphere AT
PRECISELY THE WRONG ANGLE and come down near ground level and EXPLODE, in a small nuclear reaction.
Perhaps, similar to the Tunguska Event, this is my BONE OF CONTENTION with NASA that they do not EXPOSE this possibility for the Tunguska Event in the
public domain so that world scientists can consider what it really means.
If Honda's close approach includes with it a meteor shower Honda's collision with the Earth may NOT be the primary risk, exposure to the potential
explosive hazards of the smaller comets maybe the ACTUAL hazard.
To me the primary realization of this is that, SIZE DOES NOT MATTER WITH COMETS, small comets in the right circumstances are dangerous too.
AND that creating a rocket engine that uses magnets to suck in space hydrogen and ignite it out the back side may work better and be more successful
