The meatorite that blasted in Russia is one thing, but did you guys know how close that Comet actually came to earth - in Astro related distance, it nearly missed hitting earth.
I heard that if the Earth's orbit around the sun were like 15 mins later the it actually is, the Comet would have struck us.
I also heard that it came as close or closer that some our the man made satalites that obesity the earth.
Is this stuff accurate ?
Holy Moly !
It wasn't a comet LOL It's an asteroid! A comet is a ball of dirty ice that always follows a hyper-elliptical orbit around the sun. An asteroid is a rock, or a ball of rust (lol) that can take any type of orbit. Crazy stuff though, impacts do happen. It's not if; It is WHEN!
Hey, maybe the folks going to Mars in 2025 should take a signed Babe Ruth baseball with them?
Not all asteroids are smaller than all comets. Some asteroids are big enough to be called "dwarf planets".
In any event, we got about as close as I'm comfortable with. LOL
"Put a Mets uniform on that asteroid, then it won't hit anything."
You are such a negative poster.
Sorry I couldn't help that. That was an awesome line you came up with.
>>>"Put a Mets uniform on that asteroid, then it won't hit anything."<<<
Lol. Bad boy.
>>>"Couldn't we just send up an oil drilling team to land on the asteroid and drill halfway down and nuke it so it blows up down the middle and misses Earth in opposite directions?"<<<
Bruce Willis apparently wasn't available for the mission. Lol

I hear that as soon as the one in Russia hit, people were trying to sell fragment of it they didn't even have .
