[Cnet] Giant asteroid to get closer than moon - Page 3

post #21 of 110
BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!!


Anyway I don't get why people get freak out about this...IF it was going to hit, maybe not NASA, but other smaller amateur agencies would tell us something. Right?

And I believe the 2028 Asteroid is the one we have to worry about.

If all life were going to be wiped out by an asteroid and there was nothing that could be done about it I think it'd be better not to know....

It is better if we could get data in advance. Then we can send something that can nudge the asteroid so that it eventually misses the Earth.

Have no fear. Science is here.

An asteroid with an diameter of 400 meters could be easily deflected off course by a nuke. It wouldn't even have to be a big nuke.

I'm pretty sure we've done plenty of much larger detonations inside our atmosphere, that had no effect.

I wonder if by the time 2028 rolls around we will also be interested in strip mining it for potential resources. Nudge it into an orbit around earth, once we're done with getting resources and data send it back out along its original path.

Looks like the "Just-Nook-It" brigade has arrived. Do you realize asteroids can be made up of all kinds extraterestial matter that acts differently when impacted / detonated? Nukes don't always work. Nor do bigger nukes.

Like...? Most asteroids are made up of harmless rock.

And we aren't saying to nuke it into smithereens, just detonate a blast near it to blow it away from Earth, if it were to come too close that is.
