There's a bus-sized asteroid called 2012 BX34 That is getting closer to striking Earth with each successive orbit around Sol. It recently passed between Earth and the Moon's orbit around us. There was a mention of this same(?) asteroid in late June last year. It was alot closer to Earth this time. I wonder its solar orbital pattern will bring it to eventually hit us... I'm not worried though! An object that small, passing through our atmosphere would break apart and vaporize at it descended as a meteor. The largest mass that hits us will be about the size of a basketball up to a shopping cart. There may be horrible property damage and loss of life it and it's fragments hit populate land, but that's not very likely. Although there could be small tsunamis.
lol @ micrometeors. I actually witnessed one hitting a parking lot in Riverton Wyoming during the hale-bopp comet passage. It was like a spontaneous pot-hole opened up in the north-east corner with a dust devil puff of debris! I checked it out and apparently the meteor was completely disintegrated in the impact. A real bummer lol.
That was called the Vela Fragment, and the Earth is still, to this day, only in the early stages of its healing from that massive cataclysm. I take it you've read The Atlantis Enigma by Herbie Brennan...
No, I havent heard about that. I am not concerned. Before we could see into space, these things took place all the time and nobody even knew. It's interesting stuff though.
Did you know the moon is just a chunk of earth that broke off? When an asteroid clashed in to the earth a few hundred billion years ago. and look the planet is still here
Did you guys ever see that old episode of The Simpsons where the asteroid was headed for Springfield?
That's what I'm sayin Bro!!! If the worlds gonna end lets live it out with a bang and a cheer!
it will degenerate when it will came in contact with the earths atmosphere
Erratic boulders flying through empty space... Damn them!
oh these miscreant degenerates!!! Will they ever stop?!?!
Yeah lol, the Hailey Comet caused quite a stir in 1066 :D
A piece is gonna hit me for sure. Probably pebble sized.
That degenerate!!!!!!!! I shall call the cops.
2012 baby let's Fuhken party woot
