Good question. Your bones can perform orbital calculations? But what you really mean is that you just think that the asteroid will impact Earth
(contrary to what the refined orbital calculations indicate) and have a far greater effect than the physics of such an impact would indicate
I get the point of your relentless yet civilized and polite probing and poking.
But since the OP, the NASA experts have updated their" prediction" yet again.
The "estimated"minimum size of DA14 has now gone from 30m to 36 m.
What an exact science this Asteroid ORBITAL PREDICTION TRADE IS.
An approx 17% increase in their calculations, their expert calculations within approx nine hours.
Oh but it is an exact , expert spot on prediction, they shout to the world..".DA14 will not impact the Earth".
Yet they have revised the size parameters by 17%.
Perhaps next week we will learn the asteroid will have a minimum size of eighty meters, who knows, lets take bets.
They are mortals, they do not know for certain...anymore than I do. that.it will hit.
When the plague hit , the astute ones, escaped to solitude.
They knew despite the priests wailing that it was a sinners plague, that it was somehow connected to the air.
The plague was transmitted through the air.
So get away from common air.
Maths can tell you of orbits, but not of the truth.
It hides behind the truth,and declares itself as the truth.
Maths , cannot fathom why ...something modelled on a bird dropped a bomb that killed one hundred thousand people in Japan.
Maths is without reasoning...it cannot allow for the random acts of space.
That is why we need to keep alert on DA14.
