...and guess what people? In x amount of time another asteroid will hit the earth, then in x amount of time another will hit then another, then another..ect.

Earth is called a planet for a reason... it is a heavenly body in space and thus is influenced by other celestial bodies which collide all the time...and will continue to collide in this solar system until the Sun dies in 5.5 billion years.

I think with the average human life span on earth being about 72 years that everyone who is on this thread will not have much to fear then, unless you are one of those eccentric people who have passed on and have put their bodies into cryogenic storage in hope that one day you will be physically returning back to this death rock.

Then to you I say....nothing is guaranteed! (natural law)

Well, the Solar maximum will supposedly peak in about March of 2013. If there is a large solar flare or even many smaller flares the fields of the earth will expand. I've read about this phenomenon. They worry about it's effects on some satellites. If this expanded field is in effect at the time the asteroid is very close wouldn't it pull the asteroid to the earth if it gets within that field?
Just a thought.

The field you are referring to is the Earth's magnetic field and it is extremely weak. Here at the Earth's surface it is much stronger and barely turns a compass needle. In space it would have no detectable affect on a large object especially one that is unlikely to be affected by magnetic fields.

To avert a new apocalypse – this time set for February 2013 – scientists suggest confronting asteroid 2012 DA14 with either paint, or big guns.


I have heard this solution regarding "paint" before, and it leaves me reeling dizzy with confusion. So, like, are the asteroids repelled with a contrivance of artifice, via discordant color schemes which encourage deflection, somehow?

That's an excellent question. The idea is that different colors absorb and reflect sunlight. By changing the way that the sunlight interacts with the surface you can cause the asteroid to move.

A radiometer is a device that rotates when exposed to light. It is not what is happening in space, but gives an idea of what might be done.
en.wikipedia.org...

The Nichols radiometer was used to measure radiation pressure.

Here is a description of it.

As you can read it is a small force but over a long time it can slowly nudge an asteroid into an orbit that misses the Earth.

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.



This video is a hoax ... you can see the "clipping" that has been made, from many different presentations, to make this particular one.

It's pretty poorly done.

The earths magnetic field, is far from weak, and the fact that our "untuned" needles can be moved by it is in fact a teller that it is quite strong. In fact, it is so strong, that every electric thing you have going ... is in fact, the work of the earths magnetic field. You are inside a magnet, everything that uses electricity inside this magnet ... has it's origin from the magnet itself.

The Universe itself is an electromagnetic universe. In fact, the very space you live in is the work of repelling electrons. This space, you think of ... is in reality not a space at all ... it is merely difference in energy levels. Your body is merely a dot ... 99% of it, is the space between the electron and it's nucleus. The distance from the nucleus, is in fact, merely a question of energy levels.

Light can effect electrons ... excited electrons, can cause movement. And every element of that rock in space, is made of electron-proton pairs.

It is not strong. It is weak. At the surface we experience very little of the field strength. By the time you get to outer space the field is very, very weak. The claim about untuned needles is a joke. Magnets far stronger the Earth's field are easy to make and have been made for a long time.


In fact, it is so strong, that every electric thing you have going ... is in fact, the work of the earths magnetic field. You are inside a magnet, everything that uses electricity inside this magnet ... has it's origin from the magnet itself.

Again that is false. Rooms are constructed that shield the inside of the room from the Earth's magnetic field. That is reasonable to do. The magnetic field of the Earth is easily overcome by everyday electric motors. The fan cooling your PC has a field that overcomes the Earth's field. The cooling fan's motor does not have a field derived from the Earth's magnetic field.


The Universe itself is an electromagnetic universe.

The universe is shaped by gravity, not EM. Local events are controlled by the interactions of electrons, but the universe in general is not since particle do not get close enough to have the surface electrons interact.

Nothing you have posted except for the false claim about untuned needles has anything to do with the weak magnetic field of the Earth. That field is weak at the surface and weaker in space.

An impact from a 200ft wide asteroid would have the explosive force of around 50 megatons,the most powerful atomic bomb ever made and would be equal to around 3,000 hiroshimas.We are sitting ducks,waiting for doomsday to arrive...

The NASA site says it has a little over a two and a half percent chance of impacting the earth. They also say it's a little early to tell for sure..

Where did you see that? I see 2.1e-4 which is .00021 which is .021%

Woops, didn't see the percent sign behind the long number. Thought is was just decimal.

No problem. I was just curious if there had been a change in the probability.

The great barringer crater "meteor crater" in arizona was formed by the impact of a nickel/iron meteorite about 150ft wide,around 50,000 years ago and that crater is 4,000ft across,570ft deep,with a 150ft high rim and this event had the explosive equivalent of 10 megatons,which is about 600 hiroshimas...

I'm mobile, so it doesn't show what forum this is in. But it should be in the hoax forum if it is not. And you should be banned or warned for knowingly posting a hoax.

How someone could have the brains to use the Internet, and not the brains to understand why and how this thread is a complete joke is criminal.

Op, seriously? Mods, seriously?

How do we rise above the ignorance that produces threads like this? Help!

The tunguska air burst of 1908,still considered an impact event,destroyed an area of 830 square miles and leveled about 80,000,000 trees,which was caused by a meteoroid or comet fragment about 120ft across,which exploded with the force of around 5 megatons,about 300 hiroshimas...

Why are you saying this is a hoax and why are you getting so angry at the op? this seems real enought to me and this cosmic intruder "could" hit us in early 2013 > theextinctionprotocol.wordpress.com... Or am i missing something?

Blocula you have mentioned a few events, yet have not listed other events since 1908. What you have done is told us that objects do indeed hit the Earth. Sure we know that. Past events do not affect this event and this event is going to happen as predicted - no impact.

If you want to list a daily event why not mention that fireballs happen thousands of times a day. Eventually one of these numerous fireballs will hit a plane. The chances are extremely low, but there are lots of planes and lots of fireballs that are still moving pretty fast at the height aircraft operate. Do we worry about that when we enter a plane? No.

I mentioned the other impact events because they involved objects with sizes similar to this 200ft 2012-DA-14 asteroid and thats also why i described their explosive forces and resultant damages,to show what would happen if this asteroid hit the ground and if it hit or burst into or over the ocean,that could even be worse because of the widespread tsunamis that would most likely produce.These massive objects are sometimes made of metal! and impact with incredible speeds of around 30,000mph! and thats about 15 times faster than a bullet! The Muzzle velocity of an M16 rifle is 2,180mph...
