I can't believe we are still here. I mean with all of the threads that predicted the end of the world when Elenin passed the closest to the Earth on 9/11. I'm beginning to think some of you prophets are really puppets.
Comet Elenin was beyond Jupiter when it was found, but tracking inwards towards a perihelion 72 million km from the Sun, which it passed on Saturday. It is now tracking outwards and will pass a safe 35 million km from the Earth on 16 October. Despite the claims to the contrary, there is no chance of a collision or of any of the other dire effects we read about. Indeed, the comet's nucleus was only ever a small icy body and observations suggest that it may have disintegrated as it neared perihelion, as others have done before.
Maybe this girl just made a lucky guess?
