The Earth was almost hit last monthWatch
If they spotted it soon enough would a big nuke not be enough to change it's course? Or have I been watching too many movies :|
I doubt it'll happen our lifetime anyway so who cares eh?!
but it might...
well if we find out we're gonna die ill drop everything and take you to disney land
Ah well I haven't read any of this stuff for years. Isn't a tidal wave how the Minoans got destroyed following an eruption or have I got my wires crossed?
Hmm thought that was disproven, since buildings were left standing etc but I'm not an expert. Someone in ancient history was destroyed by a tidal wave but I forget who.
Hooray I'm not going daft after all. Is it the volcano that destoyed the island it was on, and caused a tidal wave to rush away?
wot yer talkin bout now? im lost
See, the pig meister tells it like it is. Oh the useless information I have.
Even a relatively small collision could completely wipe us out, especially if it hits the sea, tidal waves agogo - settlements are disproportionately close to the sea, but that doesn't really matter when the waves are miles high.
12 miles. That's not big :/
We're doomed I tell you, doomed!
Remember we are talking about space so anytime soon is like some time in the next 100,000 years or so.
Why was this not broadcasted, did they only just find out, if they did, god what idiots the brits are
bush was going to announce it in his big "15 bln a year to send men to mars" speech, but the scientists ruled out the asteroid hitting the earth.
What is the point in Bush being told first though? It's not like he can personally do anything about it.
i dont know. i think it is because it was NASA scientists that discovered it.
Hmm... shouldn't they be thinking of something to do about it rather than wasting their time on the phone to Bush...
