I'm sorry that you think that's supposed to somehow disprove my analysis, but it doesn't.
Mate, Honestly, I don't doupt what you say is correct. but what I am saying is that this object has only been discovered about 4 months ago and there is only about 8 months until it arives. Glad we have a global effort and backyard explorers watching the skies, but calulating trajectory as easy as it is, can't be enough, things change little things can cause a great change, look at our weather, it can not be predicted 100% accuratly mostly due to these little changes that totally change the way the weather acts.
Currently, there are lots of ideas of how to protect us from a these object but not one has been proven to work and as far as I know, have been un tested.
This is a perfect opertunity to test ideas. However, Nasa does not have enough time to put a ship together Most meteors do burn up, most are alot smaller than the one coming. and just saying it will burn up isnt good enough, Nasa say's lots of things need to be considered, such as what is it made of? can this be calculated from far enough away to give us enough time to act?
so, lets just pretend something happens and an impact is going to happen, not that it would not be an 'ELE' event, but as someone stated, it would cause a lot of global issues in economy etc, and lets say this was going to stike NYC or in the ocean near NYC, how do you police an evacuation of 8,000,000+
I honestly can't say I trust the Government enough to give people plenty of time... The loss of life would be acceptable compared to the finacial Stress on other cities and states
