Do you have doomgasms ? In reality when it gets closer say a year out they will fire on it and change its orbit to miss us. With our technology we shouldn't really face a treat from NEOs. We should be able to deflect anything. That is, if we see it . These things can sneak up on us. One did a few weeks back. They didn't see it till it was on our a$$ but lucky for us it was not on a collision course.

I will be 75 years old in 19 years. I might not even be around anymore. Gosh that's a depressing thought.

But if I am... I am throwing a big party with drugs and everything. Drugs like plavix, and beta blockers and advair.

Well, we had a laugh at the incident to begin with. It was strange...partially because she had never done that before and because of how it went down.

Then it was a little more real when I discovered the transition time between ages.

Now it's even more pertinent.

Don't get me wrong though....there's no reason to stress. Just be good, live a good life and be genuine and kind-hearted.

Its happen before, it WILL happen again.

The only question is will Humanity be prepared for it.


That's not the only question. Another question might be "Will humanity still be around when it happens again?"

Humans have been around for a VERY short time on earth (our current species is only 250,000 years old) and civilization has only been around 50,000 years. Even if we liberal on how long the species will still be around -- let's say 5,000,000 more years (which would be 100 times longer than our civilization has been around so far, and 20 times longer than our species has been around) -- there may may not be an extinction level impact event during that time period.

It's possible that the next extinction level impact event could come some time long after the human species has gone away due to some other natural cause. Species don't last forever.

Having said that, I think we should be prepared for one that may surprise us tomorrow.



its the only question that matters, if we are not here its not a problem.

UnBreakable

Skywatcher2011
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!


Being that a collision is "negligible" at 1 in 63,000 ,I wouldn't get too worked up over this. Nothing to see here.


There is still a chance though....if NASA or other scientists said that there was "absolutely NO chance," then I wouldn't have the slightest worry. But any chance is still a bad chance!

There's also a chance that a cow will drop on you from the sky next time you go outdoors. Incredibly unlikely, but like you said, any chance is a bad chance!

You were saying?

Cow falls on man: Cow falls, killing man in third cow falling incident for area
www.examiner.com...


The cow had escaped from a nearby neighbor's farm in this rural area of Brazil and wandered onto Joao Maria de Souza's property. The house is backed into a steep hill, which unintentionally makes a easy path for a cow, or any walking creature, to get on the roof of this home.

When the cow hoofed it onto the asbestos roof of the man's home, the cow's weight sent it crashing through the roof and onto the man and his wife in bed. The falling cow narrowly missed the man's wife. Souza first survived the cow's fall with what the family thought was only a broken leg. He died the next day at the hospital with internal injuries from being crushed by the cow.

Yes no worries from me,in 19 yrs I would be 80 hopefully I'm long gone before then,but with my luck I'll probably still be around

Doomsday 2 is on 2032

You are 19 now in 2013

2032 - 2013 = 19 years from now

19 years old + 19 years to doom = 38 years old

How do you get to be 80 years old in 2032????????

"Oldtimer2" never said he was 19 years old -- at least not on this thread.

FYI...I searched and nothing popped up. I usually follow this protocol...no need to replicate your post. If members wish to continue a discussion in thread I will be more than happy to continue adding my thoughts to it.

To be honest I don't think anything will ever hit unless it's allowed to happen.I feel as though maybe there is some type of system already setup or in the process of being setup to stop things like this from happening.I mean we would either never know of it or not know until it was needed or someone somehow stumbled upon on and told the world.I mean it could explain where some of that missing money goes to.

So I'm sitting here with the mrs. and I bring up the orbital diagram for this Asteroid, found here.

I don't know why they're worrying about it in 2032, where they've estimated it's distance from Earth to be appr. 0.554 AU, when they should've been worrying about it in Sept of this year, Sept. 16 to be precise, when it came within 0.045 AU of Earth. For reference, the moon is between 0.0024 and 0.0027 AU from Earth.

So you know what the mrs. says to me? "Weren't all those FEMA things going on in Sept?"

My response: "ummm.....well....yes."

My little conspiracy prodigy is exceeding her master.

Don't forget those figures are just estimates. NASA can only predict a path but they are not always right.

Thanks for sharing the link! Unfortunately I am unable to view because I don't want to accept the security risk by running the website app for the orbit model

Not just NASA, but anyone.

The orbit of an asteroid or comet is estimated by observing the object over time and tracing the small portion of its orbit during that period of observation. Astronomers can take that small portion of orbit and extrapolate (and an extrapolation would be an estimate) the entire orbit from that small observed portion.

Using this method, it is obvious that the greater amount of orbital data you start with, the greater the accuracy of the estimated complete orbit. Therefore, the longer this asteroid is observed, the better the prediction.

2032, huh? I should be 59 years old then - but with the way I eat and drink I'm pretty certain I won't make it that far, so bring it on! And if I should defy the odds placed by my doctor and defy death until then, I sincerely hope it lands directly on my block because I would not want to be a survivor.
