2 million miles subby? That's not a "near miss" by any stretch of the imagination. Inflated headlines suck.

Of course, "Near miss" means 'Several times farther away than the Moon'. And comparing these asteroids to the meteorite in Russia is a tad disingenuous. Any asteroid big enough to pose a serious threat to humanity isn't going to go unnoticed if it's heading our way. Not that there's anything we can really do about it if it does, but we'll know it's coming.

So be fair, subby didn't create the definition of "near miss". I agree though, something that is 8 times the distance from the earth that the moon is shouldn't be considered a "near miss".

hmm... I think this may have been the one my older drunken stoner high school buddies were telling me (as we were skipping class and they were getting drunk but I wasn't because I was straight edge at the time) was going to destroy us all so I should totally be a wastoid and not give a f*ck about anything and yadda yadda.

Although I have not amounted to much despite my efforts I remember thinking at the time "these guys are idiots... cool and fun... but idiots. I don't think I'm gonna take this seriously."

Not entirely accurate.  From what I understand, we can currently only detect asteroids coming from farther out in the solar system.  Our telescopes are effectively blind to objects approaching from the sun's direction.

If we are lucky enough not to have any significant asteroid impacts over the next 100 years,
then.we will be able to do something about them.

Drop it in the ocean. Collect it with tugboats.

Yeah, but to people who measure distances in terms of AU and lightyears, 2.1 million miles is  incredibly close. Also, seems like the aliens' aim is getting better, since the next one is supposed to be only a million out.

The length of time since the last earth killer (or any impact for that matter) has no affect, whatsoever, on the chances of another happening within a given time frame. The chance of us getting hit by another giant asteroid was the same the day after the  Chicxulub crater was formed as it is today, and will be tomorrow.

If it actually hit land it would probably do some serious damage locally, and would probably kick up enough dirt into the atmosphere to mimic the effects (globally) of a relatively large volcanic eruption.  It would ruin a lot of peoples' days, but most likely not an extinction-level-event.

This so makes me think of Starship Troopers.  Fun movie to watch, but there is no science to that science fiction whatsoever.  The attack that set the humans over the edge and decide to attack the bugs...  It was caused by a bug, on a distant planet, in another system altogether, hurling some bug plasma at an asteroid in OUR system, and causing it to plumet to Earth, killing millions.

There is pretty much nothing in physics that says:
1.  Any creature could possibly have such incredibly good aim, especially considering they lack any and all technology.  How the hell did they even know where our planet was?
2.  A ball of plasma could travel hundreds, if not thousands of light years in such a short period of time.

Wouldn't that be 7.8 Tsar Bombas then?

Although you'd probably have more damage from 8 actual Tsar Bombas than one hit that had 7.8 times the energy of Tsar Bomba. 8x the energy would only be around twice the radius of the actual TB.

Yes there are diminishing returns on 1 rediculous explosion vs 2 or 10 or 100 etc smaller explosions with the same yeild, hence the move to MIRV warheads instead of tsar bombas.

It could be worse if something big hit the Moon at a shallow angle, which could put thousands of large ejecta fragments in our immediate vicinity, which could do months of raining down of 1,000 tonne regolith chunks.

So...could be worse. Our thick atmosphere tends to shatter all but the big iron 'uns.

3 km is 3,000 metres not 300, its 10 times the diameter and like 100 times the mass of a 300 metre.

3 km is the "block out the sun and cause the next K/T event" type threshold.

A 3 km asteroid is pretty much being hit by the fist of an angry God.

Fun science fair project for your kids:  Stretch a large tarp between 3 or 4 chairs in your yard, and put a big-ass magnet in a ziplock bag, then toss it into the center of the tarp to create a shallow cone in the tarp. Leave it at least overnight, then carefully remove the still- bagged magnet and hold it over a large piece of white paper or cardboard. As you gently remove the magnet from the plastic bag, whatever was attracted to the magnet falls onto the white paper.  Look at these under a microscope, or put them on a flatbed scanner and run the scanner to over 300 dots per inch, max it out, save the scan as a tif file.

Behold the iron-based meteoric dust you recovered from the hundreds or thousands of tiny meteoroids that burn up overhead each day.

Variation on the tarp method:  Place the bagged magnet at the base of your home's roof downspout, and collect it after a rain storm. Do the rest of the experiment the same way.

indarwinsshadow: 2 million miles subby? That's not a "near miss" by any stretch of the imagination. Inflated headlines suck.


No, that is a total miss.  A collision would be a near miss!

Horatio Noseblower: "2014 BR57 will pass closer yet at 4.4 times the moon's distance on Thursday. "

What will happen when BR-549 comes?

Oddly enough, the asteroid didn't show up?

Maybe waiting for a more dramatic time to appear?

Kind of defeats the purpose if you're gonna have them strapped down so aggressively. Also... too flappy and she's got one of those corn fed derp faces. Do not want.


Dear Kate Upton, on behalf of the Fark community I apologize for this boorish remark. If you need anything, someone to talk to, a shoulder to cry on...
