Earth Doomsday COULD be 2029
« on: September 01, 2007, 12:24:02 am »
http://uk.news.yahoo.com/itn/20070831/tuk-scientists-track-asteroid-dba1618_2.html

When I first heard about Apophis (the asteroid) I was ****ing myself. lol. But now they come out with this?? I heard on the news yesterday that Apophis was going to be tracked, but they also mentioned 3 methods in which the scientists could use to move the asteroid away IF it targets to hit us.
The 3 methods they suggested sound like rubbish...so...have any of you guys got an opinion on this?
Will it really miss like they think? Or will they have to try something to alter its course? If so, what can be done?

I hope it misses. It's too big a sized asteroid for their crummy ideas to work.

Just read another article saying its chance of hitting is greater on April 13, 2036.  :unsure:

Ey, the figure is low...isn't it? Before it was a 1 in a million chance...then it went down to 1 in 45,000 and they say in 2036 the chances rise to 1 in 1,400! (or around that number)

Just read a 5 page story about it on a space website and they say it's only big enough to destroy a certain sized state in the USA (that would be the size of a small island like the UK) or if it hit in the ocean it would cause a mass of tidal waves that would devistate the coastlines nearby the impact.
To make things more spooky, they say that if it hits the moon hard enough to cause a chunk of it to dislodge (the crater basicly removes lots of the moons surface) that it would cause a global catastrophy in climate change.
Certain countries would have non-stop typhoon weather, tidal waves will be more frequent...as would tornadoes and hurricanes.

Some scientists are saying that the odds of the asteroid hitting the moon at the strength required for that to happen though is 1 in 500,000 and the chance of it hitting the moon itself isn't even that high to begin with.

They're saying now that it's not even that dangerous...that it's been lowered to a catagory 1 asteroid.
How the hell can it go from 7 to 4 and then to 1 in less than a week!!?

Asteroids aren't the end of the world. Global warming is.

I think Manbearpig is a bigger threat than global warming.
