[SPACE] Meteorite Falls in Eastern Russia, Causes Damage: Reports - Page 12

Cool that it was in so many shots.

My major takeaway from this thread is. All russians drive around with cameras on in their cars.

One thing I just thought of, if a 1km wide asteroid plopped down on us it would probably blind everyone looking at it in it's path... eesh

What you said in bold is really important for people to understand. We'd need at least a year but probably 5 to build the correct equipment etc etc. Space missions don't just happen and space missions to moving objects on a trajectory for earth don't happen easily.


One of the things a guy was commenting on my post earlier was saying was that "orbital mechanics are well understood" SURE THEY ARE.. for fixed orbit objects... Asteroids, meteors, comets... Those are much different things and we have to understand the orbits of other objects and it gets quite complicated because the gravity of so many OTHER objects have to be taken into account... EVEN OBJECTS WE HAVE NOT DETECTED biggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gifbiggrin.gif (which was kind of my point)

So rendezvous with an asteroid would not be even remotely simple with a manned ship.

I think if we NEEDED it to survive...stuff would happen very quickly. There supposedly are even crazy plans already made up for these scenarios and some thought put in place on the topic. I think as long as we had six months we'd make it. There would be no red tape...no budget to worry about...every resource from every corporation would be available. I've just seen it over and over on a small scale when people were threatened with death...they worked together to overcome it. Of course the majority of the world would probably degrade into anarchy and chaos, but all we would need is the people with the know how to keep a level head long enough to get some nukes up there to make a blast to change the course of the object. The law of physics pretty much require that it would work provided we manage to target it but that shouldn't be impossible just going off the stuff we've already done in space. If it was something the size of Texas heading at us...yeah, we're toast, but smaller ecosystem threatening stuff we could handle.

We know almost nothing of smaller objects like the one in the above video, even after they enter the atmosphere. Meteors large enough to make it through the atmosphere are not rare. Meteorites strike earth all the time, nearly two per day, on average. They rarely harm anyone or damage any property and most go unnoticed.

There is nothing particularly scary going on, and no conspiracies; just the inevitable results of living on a planet in a solar system.
+rep for not being an ignorant conspiracy theorist.

The thing I love above every Russian driver cam video that comes out is they seemingly have no reaction, keep driving and listening to radio. thumb.gif

Let me me put on my tin foil hat and ask if the danger this asteroid posed was deliberately withheld from the public. Maybe they knew fragments of it would strike the Earth but this information was suppressed.

Imagine if they announced that they hope it doesn't strike Earth.

This is what I'm thinking. There's no way we don't know about these things. We have a multi million dollar installation that can detect icbms or even something as small as a weather balloon, yet we can't see a 40 ton rock knocking at our door. There's even speculation that this thing was shot at by the Russian military. We'll never know.
