That's why ATS rocks. There's always someone who understands your post better than yourownself.

Major Ed Dames in his Coast to coast show in ...March, said celestial body to pass near Earth, to strip it significantly from magnetosphere, and thus to contribute to the solar killshot in 2016. Whatever the odds of not happening now, I wouldn't take that lightly.

I'm going to take it SO lightly that I will likely fall asleep.

We'll then, I'm either going on a looting spree, or I'll start drinking. Not sure which one yet.

S&F for the doom porn!

The world's ending (again), why deprive yourself, do both!

At least you'll have a crap excuse when they catch you looting.

Yeah, i know they are different, magnetism was used as a mental cue only.

Speed is going to affect what, if anything, is caught in the gravitaional field of a speeding planet. If the planet is cruising along like a SUnday driver out for a sighhtseeing tour, it will probably attract quite a bit of what it's close to...if it's zipping along like a quark in the will disturb the asteroids and comets, but won't be in proximity long enough for the bodies to be 'shepherded'.

Same principle of why the extreme temperatures up to billions of degrees C generated on Earth in labs and colliders don't melt a hole through the Earth...because the temperatures are only around for tiny fractions of a second...too fast to cause damage IOW.

If those temparatures were generated and remained for significantly longer, the entire facility / lab / collider would be destroyed.

Extreme speed or otherwise of the attracting body does and will affect what it will 'catch' in it's gravitational field and shepherd along with it.

If the object is travelling at a significant percentage of the speed of light, as do particles inside an accelerator, it's mass and therefore the gravitational distortion it applies to space time, will be greater than if it were merely floating about at a pace comparable with the speed at which our own solar systems various bodies move.

Actually, it's mass will not change, but it's relative mass will. Sorry, been a bit of a day.
