NASA says it will hold a news conference at 1 p.m. EDT on Thursday to reveal near-Earth asteroid findings!


"While neither the European Space Agency (ESA) nor NASA has suggested that YU55 poses a threat to Earth, plans to develop a mission to counteract a potential asteroid collision in the future are already underway."

Probably because they know of other NEO's of which the data is not publicly available. We seem to have a multitude of NEO's heading our way right now and the fire in the sky over Buenos Aires might be a small appetizer of what possibly lies ahead.

Makes me think of the EBS test coming the ninth of November.
I want to see Nasa actually say something about these comets and asteroid around us. Maybe someone will ask about Planet X.

Also note that many NASA officials along with the president are safe in their bunker right now, or will be very shortly.


They did not have enough room for all of their employees, so the next best thing they could do was warn them:

They’ll probably harass us with more Star Wars bull rap because they thought it was so awesome..

They'lll also tell us stuff that we don't need to know because we already know crap.

As someone said in another thread, NASA has jumped the shark.

That's why I said if not now, soon.

Schedules can also change quite quickly.

ebs test? oh yeah makes sense. when is that test scheduled for again? *forget*

anyways here is the link to nasa.gov. notice they have been quiet no i mean *silent* for the past few months like the calm before the storm.

neo.jpl.nasa.gov...

"Although classified as a potentially hazardous object, 2005 YU55 poses no threat of an Earth collision over at least the next 100 years. However, this will be the closest approach to date by an object this large that we know about in advance and an event of this type will not happen again until 2028 when asteroid (153814) 2001 WN5 will pass to within 0.6 lunar distances."

so as to confirm whats been debated in other yu55 threads, NASA is confirming YU55 *will* come closer to earth than the moon (passing between) on/about Nov 8 and again 15 yrs -- assuming it doesnt hit us or the moon this November!

If there is something amiss then they have probably known about the upcoming 'event' for quite some time. I am already aware of when this video was released.

My prediction is one of those will hit the moon.
It will be a spectacular event that all could watch.

Where will the moon be during those close approaches?
Can anyone come up with that?

SE58 2011 is coming extremely close tomorrow and would hit with force of a nuke if it impacts. Odd how we didn't hear of this.

Interesting. Based on the chart they're not life threateningly close, but still that's pretty dang close. I think it's worth holding a conference over, but I don't know if that's worth of being called a "potential extinction level event"....
