To avert a new apocalypse – this time set for February 2013 – scientists suggest confronting asteroid 2012 DA14 with either paint, or big guns.
The tough part of either scheme is that time has long run out to build a spaceship for any operation.
NASA confirms the 60-meter (197-feet) asteroid, spotted by Spanish stargazers in February, has a good chance of colliding with Earth in eleven
The rock's closest approach to the planet is scheduled for February 15, 2013, when the distance between the planet and space wanderer will be under
27,000 km (16,700 miles). This is lower than the geosynchronous orbit kept by the Google Maps satellite.
What are your thoughts about this?? I'm not sure if this topic belongs in 2012 but I couldn't think of any other place to put it. This is pretty
breaking I might say, this news just came out some hours ago.
In my opinion I think things SWHF sooner than Feb 2013. I see Oct-Nov-Dec being crazy. People are going to riot, more so than ever, and it will hit
the US, not just in other country's as we get closer to the date because people won't know how to cope knowing we're all going to be doomed anyhow.
Scary times we live in. Treat one another kind with respect and dignity. Peace be to all.
