    Maybe we can ask the Tarellians for help.
    Afterall, they were running around in space before we where even in castles.

    I think this is all just a farce to motivate the advance of space technology and "laaaaseeeers".

    Yes, Hubble's compilation of electronic gizmoz is called a telescope, but not the kind that could be broken without them knowing it, proving maxorator was reffering to the old fassion telescope.

    Probably by 2035 we would all be living either on the moon or on mars..all this sounds so ludicrous to me. There have been rumors of an asteroid hitting the earth sometime in 2019, i cant seem to get the link, but somehow, by the time it approaches the earth, it is sure to veer off track. It always happens. The Universe is a real large playground guys, the Earth is just a small dot and the asteroid is even smaller..

    The asteroid is ~1 km. It could only smash into ocean and make a tsunami that would destroy some 5km of houses in the ocean coast.

    Something that large would vaporize a lot of the water it hits and smash into bedrock. Consider something that was only 50meters (1/200th the size of this one) impacted with the force of 150 nukes like those droped at Hiroshima. If the force of impact was linear that is the equivilent of 30000 nukes.

    I went up to a hippy couple while I was wearing my homosexual looking regiment uniform, stood next to them at the bus stop, turned towards them and said "Nuclear Arms are for Hugging."
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.
