And this one currently has a 0.3% chance of coming true!


Doomsday, it seems, has come and gone countless times.

But one particular prediction for the end of the world has been weighing on the mind of astronomers for more than half a century.

Scientists at Nasa have been watching an asteroid, named 1950 DA, which is currently on a path to collide with Earth on March 16, 2880.

I guess we needn't worry too much yet though?

Oh good! Now that 2019 has been cleared and looks as if 2060 is cleared... maybe this one will be a miss as well.

As I put my tin foil hat on... I really don't expect to be told if an actual danger exists. They would rather scare us with a false flag... thats their style.

Honesty? Ha! Who needs it when you are the Governing party of the world.

I saw that on the internet yesterday. It's 800 years out and I"m sure their predictions will change.
Since it's so far out I didn't add it to my 'failure watch' for doom porn. I won't be here to see
if it happens or not. (at least I hope reincarnation is wrong and I'm not stuck back here!!)

O K.
What would it be worth for someone to build and deploy a system to guard against any such impacts.
I mean a system which would be capable of detecting and diverting any "sizeable" bodies on a collision course with earth. Some smaller ones will slip by, nothing is fool proof, but those which could pose a real threat could be moved into a different path. They could even "possibly" be placed into an orbit for exploration or mining.
I am serious about this system.

Some one give me a price.

Says who? The patriarchs of old lived that long.. who's to say we might not get that back sometime over the next 10-20 years?

One thought: next time we're told the Mayans/Bible/Nostradamus/next-door's cat predicted the end of the world, can we not point out that they were obviously referring to this and not ISON or whatever comets we next get in 2014, 2015 etc ...... ?


Could kill a few hysterical predictions?!

Well yes, I just hope they hurry up because I don't fancy living forever as an 80 year old!

Talk to the guys at the b612 foundation

In the first ten years as a volunteer organization, the focus remained on asteroid deflection research and advocacy. The team developed several deflection concepts, ones that are accepted today as standard techniques to prevent an impact and over the years, the B612 Foundation was instrumental in advancing the scientific thinking on asteroid deflection.

But then came the epiphany that you can’t deflect an asteroid you don’t even know is headed to Earth. You can’t stop what you can’t see. So, while B612 had found the solution to stopping asteroid impacts – they would now have to turn their attention to the bigger more imminent issue of finding dangerous asteroids before they find us!

How far away does that make it if it won't get here for 867 years? How could they even know about it? We can't see that far out into space. Voyages only took seven years to leave our solar system. And that's a pretty fair distance.867 years would put it way way out of our galaxy and I don't think we can't see that far yet.

And yet they warn us about weather so we can prepare. They tell us when there is a political threat they tell us about CMEs they warn us about microbes in food that could harm us . They continue to make advances in medicine to keep us healthy. Who decides where this line is drawn.

What would be the ramifications if we sent it in the direction of another planet with life on it? Would we be murderers?

In 867 years they should be able to deflect this. Technology is exponential. We will be way ahead of where we are now and now we are pretty advanced so probably not a real worry. At the very least they've got time on their side.

No one ever lived 800 years. Right now in this time we have the longest life expectancy of any generation in the past . Neanderthal only lived about 35 years. My grandparents life expectancy was only about 45 or 50 and now it's about 75 years. Maybe in 867 years we will have a much longer life expectancy but it won't be 800 years. They do say that the first people likely to live150 years have already been born. I won't be here to see it.

A bigger problem is the ones they dont see. There have been a few recently .

The asteroid is relatively close to Earth, orbiting the Sun as we are. However in 867 years time there is a 0.3% chance that our respective orbits could cross, based on current computer predictions of the asteroid's orbit.

It's really a complete non story!

I would love to have a camera and some sensors attached to a meteor or comet, and then release it somewhere far away... We should have a perimeter network of probes around our solar system. A veritable Dyson sphere of satellites to watch for incoming objects of all types. Also to get a better look of what our system is heading towards.

Well of course they have to make it look like they are doing their job and care about us. In a sense they do, as they need a taxpayer base.

But a space rock...they could pretend they did not know about it. And after it hit, it would not matter if someone figured out they knew.

Furthermore, it would negate the need for "taxes" or "taxpayers"...

C'mon, use your head for gods sake... "They warn us about the things that we know they should be able to warn us about" yeah because if they didn't then we wouldnt trust them right up to the end like the pied piper.

You should avoid the world of business and should not be trusted with any money. The scammers will see you coming from a mile away! You've clearly never heard of the trick of showing yourself to be trustworthy and honest with the first few dealings so you can make off with the dough the first time you are trusted with a significant amount. They call it the slow play I believe...

I'm not saying that is what "they" are doing. I have no way of knowing! All I am saying isyour argument against it is rediculous...sigh...


This, however:

"What would be the ramifications if we sent it in the direction of another planet with life on it? Would we be murderers?"

Is a great and interesting question. Your desire to come in here starting arguments has served some good after all. *thumbs up* We should probably try to direct them into the sun or Jupiter or another gas giant? So long as there is no life on any of these objects... However if a lifeform could survive on the sun, maybe it would not harm them...
