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 months.

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.

Chances are it will break up in our atmosphere. Either that or land in the ocean, being that it covers 2/3 of the Earths surface.

I have no idea where you get "It will hit the US" from.


In today’s case, the destination of the asteroid is yet to be determined.

Someone page Phage.

Remember folks, this is RT news here, one of the most sensationalist media outlets around. NASA confirmed eh? Well, I'm not worried..



Btw, does anyone know how to read that NASA link?

lol. "Confirmed by NASA."

I defy you to find the original source of this story. Here's a clue: do a google search on "Aleksandr Devaytkin."

The asteroid may exist, but pretty much the rest of the story has been Faal-erized.

I was reading about this earlier. The size of DA14 is unknown at the time. It could be between 40-100 meters (60m is not confirmed). If anything it will probably just burn up if it even hits. I wouldn't lose sleep over it.

I would also change your sensational thread title. It is untrue and misleading.

My first thought is that your thread title is misleading fearmongering.
Its says in no uncertain terms the asteroid will indeed *HIT EARTH*.

Later, you say "a good chance", whereas NASA themselves actually say

Impact Probability (cumulative) 2.2e-04


Basically, you're lying.
Hope the stars and flags are worth it.

Firstly "good chance' =/= 'confirmed' to hit

Also the 2012 'apocalyptic' scenario is said to span all the way up until 2014, in terms of events that is. However it's been wildly skewed from the original prophecies.

Rioting because the world is going to end? I really can't see that happening, while violence is a way of human life, and we humans love killing each other, i think if we had some kind of scientifically confirmed impact from a meteor, people would work together.

Uh, was it Ronald Reagan that once said something along the lines of perhaps we need some kind of outside threat to unite humanity?

It wouldn't surprise me if the FEMA camps that been set up recently are a result of such a potential event.

Not sure where I read it from but "On the cusp of human devastation will humanity come together and work as one" something like that I think. Just wait and see I guess.

red flag.

ps. maybe those russians are using their propaganda but NASA seems to really back it up

wonder how much damage an asteroid that big does...

I just read the thread title and immediately asked my wife for doom sex.

(should have read through the thread first)


Also she says it's doom sex whenever I have scotch.

Weird that you just posted that just now, I just saw on youtube, a leaked presidential speech about an asteroid that hasn't hit yet, but was preparing like it just happened. Hmm, weird. Don't know how much validity to put into it. Could be made up. Who knows.

I don't think NASA would ever confirm something that would make planet earth's people fly into a panic. Haven't you all seen Knowing?

Did you catch the information at the bottom of the video?


Secret pre-recorded video from President Obama responding to the 2012 disaster leaked. Worldwide devastation and tragedy acknowledged. This video is a what if message for entertainment purposes only.


And the original video:



Bit sick really, using a real natural disaster to push a lie.
