ChipNASA: SlothB77: I always hear about astronomers gauging the likelihood something will hit earth.  What if something misses earth, but takes out our moon?  Wouldn't that be pretty bad for us too?  Tides and such as.

Let's try that again....(got-damn-it)

if it were on the dark side of the moon, there would be the ringing of many alarms

tl;dr
nothing would happen to us


dark side?

you mean the 'far side' that always faces away from earth but is alternately light and dark as it orbits the earth

namatad: WhoGAS: two would affect us in quite negative ways.

except that the likely hood of 1b happening is ~= zero
the chance of 2012 DA14 causing 1b is zero. (2012 DA14 is so tiny and moving so slow that it would have to hit a city directly to have an impact)
the chance of 2 happening and having an impact is tiny. the chance of  2012 DA14 hitting the moon and having any impact at all on the earth is zero.

/for all values of zero other than the pendant version of NOT ZERO JUST so close to zero to be functionally equiv, but you cant call it zero)
/but go ahead and argue that you mean affect as in if it is possible, no matter how vanishingly small
/strangely enough the dino-civilizations thought the same thing right beforechicxulub hit the earth.


So... you're saying there's a chance?

YixilTesiphon: Skywolf the Scribbler: 3) The moon gets knocked out of orbit by a large asteroid, towards the Earth, causing tidal catastrophe until its orbit decays and we are all farked

No. That isn't going to happen. There just aren't that many thing that are that big in the Solar System anymore.

Sedna isn't coming by to party, either.


You forgot to list your mom...

Why are people so obsessed with the end the world? It's too bad that your life sucks so much that you're praying for the end of the world but it's not going to happen. Not until the sun burns out and that's a period of time that neither you nor I can comprehend. So farking relax about the end of the world and if you're looking forward to it so much, just kill yourself and get it over with.
