Scientists predict biggest asteroid-Earth collision in 2032
www.pentagonpost.com...


Earth is set to witness a major collision of asteroid ever seen in 2032. Scientists say this could cause a bigger explosion that would be even influential than the most powerful nuclear bomb.

The asteroid has been added to the List of the Potentially Hazardous Asteroids, which includes celestial bodies with orbits closer than 7.5 million kilometers from the Earth’s orbit.

This powerful asteroid, described as 2013 TV135, was found moving through the Camelopardalis (Giraffe) constellation by the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory in southern Ukraine, the Minor Planet Center of the International Astronomers Union said.





Astronomers say the 1,345-foot (410m) rock could pass by or hit our planet on 26 August 2032, creating an explosion 50 times greater than the most powerful nuclear bomb. Astronomers in Italy, Spain, the UK and Russia have now confirmed the presence of the rock, and it has been added to the Minor Planet Center’s list of potentially hazardous asteroids.

“On the night of October 12, I was watching the Giraffe constellation, it was an in-depth monitoring as part of the comet search program,” Gennady Borisov from the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory said. “This is when the asteroid… was discovered. The first observations show that it moves quickly and is relatively close.”

Astronomer Gennady Borisov said, “I was watching the Giraffe constellation, monitoring it as part of our comet search programme. The first observations show that it moves quickly and is relatively close.”

Scientists have also cautioned about its high intensity.

They say, if it hit the Earth, the asteroid would create an explosion equivalent to 2,500 megatons of TNT, or 50 times greater than the most powerful nuclear bomb ever used. However, in reality the threat is minor, with astronomers putting the chance of direct impact at one in 63,000 – the likelihood being that its orbit will miss our planet by some 1.7 million kilometres. However, the threat posed by the 2013 TV135 is minor. Updated estimates show that it has a one in 14,000 chance of colliding with our planet, which is five times as probable as the initial estimate of 1 in 63,000, but still negligible.

Theres my doom porn.

I needed that.

Thank...lol

Now, I don't know about you members of ATS, but this kind of freaks me out!

What if something like a asteroid-earth collision was to happen? Could this be the inevitable Armageddon of life on Earth?

Honestly though, I think this one is worth watching and paying close attention to over the coming years. So with t-minus 19 years from now....if it were to happen, where do you see yourself in the end of days?

I am sure most of us would have forgotten about such a global catastrophic event from happening by that time, but I sure hope to live one heck of a life before that day is to come!

Work hard and party hard!
Then watch as a big star nears us from up above!

Well, it says more powerful than the largest nuke. So, yeah it would be devastating but not Armageddon. I think the worst part would be wondering where it will hit..

With the data that NASA has now, there is a 1:48,000 chance of it hitting. As they map it, they will refine the data and it will almost definitely not be a threat. Sorry, no doom today.

I think we're grasping at doom porn here. As the article states, the likelihood is negligible.

The probability of a worldwide economic collapse starting with the US dollar and cascading to every corner of the globe is 1 in 1, and it will happen before 2032.

If I make it another 20 years, I'll worry about it then. But until that time, PARTY!!!!!!!

You know it's really inevitable that something will hit us. The odds make it so. Every other planet gets hit. Look at the craters on the moon. Look at some of the craters here for that matter.

We will be hit. Eventually. I love good doom porn as well as the next girl, so I will be watching this. I am 36 now and with Obamacare I will probably be dead by the time it hits anyway.


Maybe someone will be kind enough to do a "Chicken Little" dance for me. :p

But seriously, thanks for this OP. I love this stuff.

Oh just go ahead and rain on the parade, I'm certain another threat will surface. How about the headline "Obama Takes Control of All Streams, Mud holes and Ponds." Never mind, he is already working on that one. Hmmm

Earlier they said 1:63,000 chance.
Odds are not going in the right direction....

What is important to realize is this......... One day, sooner or later, a rock, that big or bigger will hit the Earth. It's not speculation or conjecture, it's not a question of if but only a question of when. People that refuse to believe this situation exists should educated themselves on Hale-Bopp.

On the same side of that token, those that live in fear or perpetuate it in hopes of it happening sooner than later are not only missing the point of life in general but actively trying to spoil it for others.

Part of being alive and experiencing life is coming to grips that anything can happen at any time, good or bad, in the case of an asteroid from the heavens or other such events, it is not our decision to make and thus, not our burden to shoulder.

What will be, will be, dreading upon it will serve no purpose other than to shackle you in fear.

It is but one of the guestamated million that belong to this solar system and could possibly cause a bad day for earth. In America we would rather spend 1 or 2+ trillion on affordable (cough) health care than try with other nations to mount an effect quick response to a possible species ending event like an impact from something coming in from the direction of the sun..

www.abovetopsecret.com... (one million a guess; 60 minutes series)
An impact in the ocean which is down played in the video but makes for good cinematic effect

NASA may have refined its estimates, which is good, but years ago my astronomy professor spoke of this guy with vigor. He was absolutely certain it would be a hit. Now we have more precise intruments I'm sure (the way tech is growing I'm assuming we do). It's still a way off too so no stress yet

Whoa...this has freaked me the hell out.

My mrs and I did a Ouija board session.....instead of the messages coming through the board they were coming through her.....and she has never even tried this before and had no real idea what channeling was.

We did this particular session after the Russian meteor struck. Given all the comets and meteors that had been spotted I wanted to ask the proverbial cosmos, or anyone/thing that was listening, what the deal was.

My question: Are the meteors and passing cometary bodies linked or related directly to each other?

The planchette was moving very very very slowly....so slow we didn't even believe it was doing it on its own. It eventually moved to the letter Y. We took that as a yes. I took the planchette off the board and rubbed it on my t-shirt in case it was moist or sticky.

Then I asked: If these are related, when will this event culminate? When will this event end?

This is where things got weird. The wind gusted through the windows and blew the flames of the candles around...but not out. The planchette didn't move. Nothing happened. Then.....my mrs. says to me "Ummm honey....do the messages have to come through the board?" I said that they didn't come through the board anyway, that they actually came through either of us sub-conciously and then we deliver the message through the board so we can conciously see it. She then says the following: "I don't know what just happened....but I saw images of planets in a line....and then the number 2032".

And now this thread.....Guhhhhhh.

Two thousand thirty one. Party's over. Whoops! Out of time.
So tonight I'm going to party like it's 1999.

One eventually will hit Earth again and possibly be an ELE event.
What I'm noticing is they aren't discovering these comet's soon enough. Makes you wonder what big rock is lurking out there they haven't found yet. Or they do know and aren't telling us everything.


It has the same Torino Scale rating (1) as Apophis

You have more pressing things to be concerned about, my friend....You just contacted a demon and they kind of like to hang around.....What were you thinking?
