NASA is publically saying that there is almost ZERO chance of it to hit
Any of our satellites.

And they are correct.

No change. The numbers I was using were geocentric, the Earth's center. That's how the calculations are done.
ssd.jpl.nasa.gov...



As for the 21 to 17 thousand miles Calculation.... Phage is right on top of this one....
The distance from the Earth's Center to the Earth's surface is 3955 miles.
This adds up correctly. Well done everyone.

I would say, that if you are calling our satellites our satellites that we
intentionally put into orbit, gps and other communication satellites along with
defense and weaponization satellites....

But, if you factor in all of our space debris.... One must call these satellites too.
For it WAS man that put these items into orbit around our Earth, we just do not
have a use for these, or their use has run out.

Do we track ALL space debris, and can we say that this has almost NO chance
of hitting all of our debris? If so, that is a pretty amazing feat of tracking,
we should use this technology to track criminals in our own country....

Sorry, I went totally off base, I just think that we do not and can not predict
the location of all space trash at a given time in space.
HECK, how accurate is our prediction of this Asteroid's movement going to be?
Is it going to be affected by the Gravity of our Earth?
Do we accurately know the gravitational pull of the Earth at this current time?
Does an extra 10 million non-censused people add to the gravity?
Surely it adds to the mass.

I am just proposing that there are multiple variables in this scenario,
and even a small percentage of miscalculation can mean that we can not
accurately predict "little chance".


I do actually WANT nothing to happen.
I do only WANT amazing pictures and video.

I wonder if this will create an artificial Aurora Borealis or such.
Will its tail or trailing material leave us a neat light show?


How will this be visibile? Naked Eye from the ground or only telescopes and binoculars?
What countries will be able to see this?

"is there danger of this thing hitting space debri we have left up there?"

Ive been posting the same question in all these threads about DA14... the silence I get in response is almost deafening
and I agree with the other poster above...the possibility of chaos in our orbital system seem totally imminent as this thing perturbs all our trash...redistributes it

Like playing marlbes I'd think



To me, this silence COULD be an intentional distraction for us.
I personally do not understand how people can not even think about the
possibility of a collision of something....

THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE

Are we naive enough to think that we can predict everything?
When did we stop thinking of all possibilities, and just candy coating everything.
Hey, nothing to worry about here.... just pass along.....

There is Zero Chance of anything..... really.... Zero?


Look... if you believe in some conspiracy theories.....
There is PROOF that NASA has deceived the World.
Testimony from Astronauts themselves have proven this.......
Yet, we take them at their word that there is ZERO chance?


I'm not saying that we should call this doomsday or anything. NOPE.
But, lets be realistic, and say that some sort of collision with debris,
is slightly possible, and could create some sort of radioactive fallout,
or some other unpredictable event to happen.

Is it possible that it hits something and shatters? I don't think so.......
Because from what they have told us, this is a heavy metal asteroid.
But, it is moving VERY fast, and I'm unsure what would happen.

Most likely, anything that it hits (debris and such), will be instantly pulverized,
and the asteroid will not deviate course at all.

Often claimed. Never demonstrated.

Zero chance of what, exactly? Where does "NASA" say that?

So...there is a chance (yes, probably just above zero) that it will hit one possibly more satelites...and (not including the space junk as a satelite per say) will certainly (if that happens) cause chaos to reign in our system

Whoo who!

OK Ok..I am totally exagerating

However...like the game of marbles I referenced before...when something traveling this fast intersects another object...however small or seemingly unimportant...what that object then does can be disruptive to our lifestyles....Im not saying were going back to the stone age...but...imagine no satelite TV for a few days...no internet...possibly GPS disruptions that kinda stuff

I mean it is possible isn't it?

From what they have said, it has zero chance of hitting any of our communications or GPS satellites.
I was just using the term satellite to describe all of our space debris.

Most likely, anything that it hits would be Vaporized and would not cause any harm.


Phage, I was unable to find where I heard them earlier saying that
there was no chance of hitting satellites..... I am still looking though

Here were some neat sites:
ssd.jpl.nasa.gov...
neo.jpl.nasa.gov...

Does anyone know if this will be visible and if so from where and what times?

Not without a pretty good telescope and the ability to use it well.

Why would the Russians quote NASA?? They do know a thing ot two about space I've heard
