25 feet may not seem big to some FARKers, but at the asteroid's velocity of 17 times the speed of light, even a sneeze could destroy the earth.

Right.  I've still got a good 3 days left on these drawers.  Just changed them last week.

That's barely big enough to destroy a small city.

Change my underwear, yeah right, it's not summer yet.

25 foot?  We were supposed to be scared of a rock no bigger than the local school's short bus?

I don't need to shower, do I?

You idiot, asteroids don't sneeze.

Sure, if it were 25ft when it hit the Earth it would destroy a small city, but it probably wouldn't be near that big by the time it passed through the atmosphere. I doubt it would even hit the ground.

Me too, but mostly because it's about 70% not-ground down here.

I feel bad for that guy. What are the odds of an asteroid coming all that way only to pin his hand to the ground like that?

Rapmaster2000: So it's pretty fast, huh?


I'd say it's reasonably fast.  I heard in college that sperm leave the male organ at roughly 30 times the speed of sound.  That's only relatively fast.

"According to the Mail Online, if an asteroid of the same size collided with the Earth, it could destroy a small city. Its destruction would be half of the Hiroshima nuclear bomb."

No, it would not. An asteroid of this size would be largely vaporized in the upper atmosphere and any surviving fragments would be quite small. Fortunately, asteroids don't work the way OMFG! reporters want them to.
 
2014-05-05 10:37:07 AM
So it's less than a third of the size of the Chelyabinsk meteor but we should all be terrified and it would destroy a city. Got it. You should feel bad, Subby.

25ft?   pfftt I got not time to grab my tapemeasure.  How many aardvarks is that?
 
2014-05-05 10:49:45 AM
I don't care about the length, but more about the remaining mass.

I'm pretty sure a rock 25 feet across travelling at 17 times the speed of light would have a mass greater than the rest of the universe combined.

Solar System Collision calculator

RESULT: Explosion 5-20 km Above Russia in Europe!!

Energy Released: 26 KT (KiloTons of TNT) 
(Hiroshima & Nagasaki Atomic Bombs: 20 KT)

A collision this large occurs roughly once every 2.1 years.

Because subby's mom realized her panties were missing shortly after you left last night?

It's not the surviving fragments that hurt, it's the blast it creates braking.

Think of the energy that would be required to loft a 25' rock to escape velocity in a matter of seconds. That's how much energy the rock would dump into the atmosphere slowing down to nothing and disintegrating.

That's a big honking fireball and resultant shockwave... In the worst case where it was coming straight down over the hypothetical small city it would be like a hammer from God even if the entire rock was vaporized.

There's not much left of atomic bombs when they're done exploding either, but they don't do damage through their fragments.

But there are signs up everywhere forbidding engine braking. Why do the asteroids want to break our traffic laws?

Are they earth-shattering kabooms?  Because there are supposed to be earth-shattering kabooms.
