Well I guess we will find out in the near future but as for tonight I have a strange feeling I must watch "Last of the Mohicans"...weird.


You should.

Really!

One of Hollywood's best productions.

My favorite all time quote from films is in that movie!

"Clear it up any for ya...

I like how it said elenin hasn't formed a tail.

I saw a tail in one of the last shots.



Really?

Could you show me where the tail is in this Stero B Video of said Comet :

Elenin has not broken up
Elenin has a very weak tail(made more of iron?)
Elenin has slowed down(solar wind?)/more accurate measurements were taken recently meaning it will pass even closer to earth
lots of weird coincidences with the comet
obama going to denver airport september 27th i believe
satalite to fall inbettween oct and nov
nasa abandons ISS
space shuttle retires
nasa emails apparently warning famillies to get prepared
lots of new tv shows about aliens

Yes it has broken up - which is the only thing that explains its deceleration which you agree with.

Its tail, if any, is ions according to NASA

So does anyone know when this thing might hit us if it is? I hope not until after 11-11-11. I gotta play Skyrim before I die.


Did you even watch the video?

The date is included...

Umm, hate to break it to some of you guys but Velocity does not equal mass X acceleration.

I don't understand the logic in Elenin losing mass therefore slowing down, doesn't an object in space keep its velocity unless acted on by an opposing force? I thought that was the whole beauty of a vacuum.

Please someone explain this to me I'm confused!


Space is not a vacuum.

Solar wind affects comets velocity - see quote provided above or in the description of the video...

So, perhaps you should spend a bit of time slamming the people like video maker for stroking the fear and panic of wormwood elenin death star or whatever verses say -nobody- is speaking doom and gloom about elenin...

yes solar wind does effect its speed, but as i gets closer to the sun its gravity speeds it up more then the solar wind slows it down

Every year or every month since ATS started, you could say, there's doomsday coming and it never happens.

But with the breakup the original trajectory was affected by solar wind.

Here is another article on this but I am running out of computer time :

That looks to me like a really good landing trajectory.
Lets hope its not a ship filled with demons.

Velocity = mass * acceleration? What physics courses have you taken...

I and all my peers know the equation to be F=MA... the equation for force...

Not according to the latest JPL figures which is where the three day change occured...
Again, there is no 3-day change. I began post the perihelion time as listed by JPL here back in March. As of March, the closest approach to the sun was listed as 2011-Sep-10 17:55, and the closest approach to Earth was 2011-Oct-16 21:08 at a minimum distance of 34,699,527.9 km.

As of today, the the JPL data shows a perihelion time of 2011-Sep-10 17:15 (a difference of only 40 minutes). The closest approach to Earth is listed as 2011-Oct-16 19:50 (a difference of 78 minutes) at a minimum distance of 34,984,398 km (a difference of 284,870.1 km). Not too bad for over 6 additional months of observations,and certainly not a 3-day difference in perihelion time.

That was just exhaust from them speeding up to catch the solar flare so they could refuel.

Is there any 100% proof this "Elenin" even exists or existed?

Or if it was even coming towards Earth?

Because i havnt seen any proof yet...

I suppose it depends on what you call proof.
Can you provide 100% proof that your parents are really your parents?

If it is a ship. it would slow down and change direction to end up in a earth orbit.
if you travel a long distance in space. you would have a big booster.
and when you get near your destination you would dump it.
the booster would go in to a planet orbit or a high earth orbit.
it should not make any more maneuvers until it gets closer.
and some kind of communications will start. unless they are hostile.
this could be a fake alien attack. or real aliens.
it is Very much the same as the alien invasion films.
