Soylent Green Is People
The Earth does not pass through a different part of the Solar System this year as opposed to past years. It will not pass though a more dense part of the Solar system in 2013 than it did in 2012 or even in 2000.
The stuff in the solar system (asteroids, comets, planets, etc.) all move together. The Earth passes through the same parts of the solar system once per year on one-year cycles.
The Aquarid Meteor shower happens every May -- every year. That meteor shower is caused by Earth passing through a part of its orbit (every year) that is littered with dust from Halley's comet, which last came by that part of the Solar system in 1986. That dust and debris has been hanging around that portion of earth's orbit around the sun for the past 37 years (at least). Therefore, every time the earth passes through that section of its orbit (every year, once a year, in the first week of May), we get a meteor shower.

SJ, But I thought Werner Von Braun told Dr. Carol Rosin on his death bed that the last card would be a government fabricated fake alien invasion? Now she is claiming that it will be a fake meteorite that impacts planet Earth?
What is the source of this "von Braun prophecy"? Even if he "predicted" such sequence of events, what's to say he wasn't simply being a dreamer of science fiction reality, like many early sci-fi writers were? Or, if it happened on his death-bed, he didn't just start going loopy? science1.nasa.gov...
What's not to say that Carol Rosin completely made it up?
P.S. found this quote: "Von Braun revealed to Dr Rosin a plan to justify weapons in spaced based on hoaxing an extraterrestrial threat." But why would the world powers need to justify creation of space weapons to anybody? I think they are quite comfortable as it is creating and using all sorts of weapons. We already have ICBMs, satellites that can shoot other satellites, and probably lots of other classified technology. It's not like they are going to need the public's permission for space weapons.
