Bad news everyone, remember a little while ago some kid posted a thread about how the government is running a "drill" where they are putting all their important personnel in bunkers around the country?

Well that all went down today, and it turns out that very soon a huge asteroid is coming extremely close to us

http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/db_shm?sstr=2004%20XP14

I am not sure what an AU is but on July 3rd a huge piece of rock is going to be about .0035 of them away from earth

I, for one, refuse to listen to reason. These two things are definitely related and it probably means we are all going to die so you guys had better start preparing

1 AU = 1 Astronomical Unit = 149,597,871 kilometers

so then the asteroid is going to be 509592 kilometers from earth

that is mad close man especially for astronomical standards

Very close yes. Thankfully orbit measurements are very precise. They can be correctly calculated to the precision of centimeters. So no worries there. Let them play bunkers. They love it.

The distance is still further away than moon's average distance to earth. So, astronomically very close, but as far as life on earth is considered... "Missed! Nah nah!"

Looking at the simulation in that link, the asteroid comes close to earth every 25 years. For some reason, it's significantly closer this year than any other.

Oh...you mean the asteroid.

Both objects have stable orbits. The tendency seems to be in fact for the asteroid to move further away from earth (you can check this with the ephemeris calculation). The approximation is certainly due to the relative positions, since both objects have different revolution times and velocity.

Also, 2004 XP14 was removed (http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/risk/removed.html) from the Impact Risk table last year.

I'm no fun

In the light of this new evidence that there is actually a table of things that are flying around in Space waiting to destroy us, I agree with SlyMaelstrom. We need to work on that laser immediately! Even if we have to power down all of Japan to fire it. :mad:

I blame it on the canadians

By this time next week, NASA should enact operation Death Star! Errr.... for astroids, that is.

... and small annoying planets.

Why would you want to do that to SniperSAS?

Oh...you mean the asteroid.

You know what pianorain i am getting pretty sick of your constant abuse and if you think I am going to keep tolerating it you are wrong

Why does it stop at 2200 what happens after that huh????????

psychopath
06-19-2006, 07:26 PM
They obviously stop the simulation after the year 2200, because they know that's when we (ok, not we...our grandchildren) all get killed by the asteroid.

SlyMaelstrom
06-19-2006, 07:28 PM
It realizes it got too close to us, stops, apologizes, and flies away.

...ok, so I was off by 2200. Oh my god! 2200! It's all connected!

Monk is an awesome show though. I watch TV for two reasons: Law & Order and Monk sometimes too. I love cop shows. I get to watch people get arrested in the comfort of my own home.

I hope that it's made of oreos so that everyone else gets fat when it hits and I wont' feel so bad about myself.

I don't know. If it is the end of the world it is supposed to hurt everyone equally.

I bet it is made of Paris Hilton dolls

If it is the end of the world it is supposed to hurt everyone equally.That reminds me of one of my favorite running bits, which based on this:
There's a famous joke about a New York Times headline: "World to End Friday; Women, Minorities Hardest Hit."http://www.google.com/search?q=%22world+ends%22+hardest+hit+site%3Aopini onjournal.com%2Fbest

You are the chosen one

It is written in the book of necropolis that "the bob one" will arise from the ashes of a fallen civilization and lead his people into new age of peace and understanding, where all men shall prosper and live without fear or tyranny and evil

so what do you say bob are you up to it
