NASA is apparently putting out propaganda they have the asteroid question in hand. If “global warming,” “Fly Me To The Moon” and The Mars Mission are any measure, we have something to worry about.
Consider this quote from a recent publication:
“Around 2,000 asteroids measuring 900meters wide could hit in next billion years. However, the chance of Earth being struck in the near future is close to zero.”
Oh really? And, just how did they come to that when most of the people studying these things are amateur astronomers?
”Last titanic asteroid hit 66 million years ago, extinguished 75 per cent of all life. Asteroids that could wipe out humanity are on paths to hit Earth – but we should be safe for another 1.35 million years.”
Now just how in Hell did you nimble noggins come to that? We have found NASA, and other Federal agencies saying things that are not true, nonsensical, even dead wrong! The previous paragraph with such hard numbers is clearly one with no content verification.
”There are around 2,000 known asteroids that could strike our planet in the next billion years, according to experts. However, the chance of Earth actually being hit by one of these in the near future is close to zero.”
Did this come from a “global warming” believer, fat grant recipient? The truth of the matter is that the real concern is for the asteroids we have not yet found or identified. They are very difficult to see, dark in color, emit no light and in a very wide band in the Solar System.
EARTH’S THREE ‘CLOSE SHAVES’ THIS YEAR
NASA revealed earlier this month that two space rocks were heading towards Earth, saying neither posed a threat to our planet. Of all the asteroids that have been discovered, more than 1,650 are considered to be “potentially hazardous” by NASA and 157 are larger than 3,000 feet in diameter!
Need we point out that a rock with a diameter of 3,000 feet would end life on Earth with a shock wave killing billions outright, a 71% chance of making a tsunami wave that would kill more billions as 80% of all people live close to the seas, plus a dust and smoke-filled sky totally covering Earth for a decade starves everything.
“An asteroid measuring 500 ft in diameter is the most likely to hit Earth, with a one in 625 chance of striking, the experts at Real Life Lore explain in a YouTube video. But it would be more than 160 years before the asteroid hit the planet. Another asteroid measuring 1,600 ft wide has a 1 in 2,700 chance of hitting earth. And a larger asteroid, measuring 4,200ft in diameter, is the third most likely to hit – but only has a one in 8,333 chance of striking in the year 2880.”
These numbers are speculative and based entirely on NASA’s own estimates of accuracy. Where they have demonstrated no ability to properly define the role of carbon dioxide, CO2, in the atmosphere why should we have any faith in their assessment of this more complex problem?
”Meanwhile, the star Gliese 710 – which will pass 77 light days from the Earth in 1.35million years – is set to send asteroids from the outer reaches of the solar system towards Earth, having a potentially catastrophic impact.”
This admittedly throws all their estimations out the window as the resulting paths are beyond our ability to determine them in terms of raw numbers and interactions.
We can only wonder how much we have paid for NASA to prove to the people that know something of physics to see they are not telling us the truth. NASA has been a “black hole” for billions of Dollars. Money goes in and nothing of value comes out!
NASA plans missions to send men and women to places that literally contain nothing, but lethal radiation. The only good that has come from the trillion Dollars we have spent on “space” is from satellites that cost about 1/1000th of what NASA has spent on nonsense.
Now the big buzz at NASA is “Going to Mars!” a planet with no air, no water, not enough gravity to support bone health. Living there would turn a human in a blob of jello in a few months after having spent the gross national product of the United States for a year or two just to ship all the support materials. All of these shysters selling this nonsense know it, or should, or if not should be fired.
Next they will express deep concern the Andromeda galaxy will collide with ours and all kinds of stuff will be whizzing by day and night. Make that in several million years and when it happens we will only occasionally see something pass from from Andromeda if you do the math.
Meanwhile back at the NASA Freak ‘Em Out Desk:
”Titanic asteroids over 6.2 miles in size are capable of wiping out life on earth – but the last one known to hit was 66 million years ago. It destroyed 75 per cent of life on earth, including the dinosaurs.”
That asteroid fortunately hit a peninsula in southern Mexico hitting about equally on land and sea. Had it hit on land or sea alone it would have done far more damage, but hit in a place where the sea is shallow and the resulting wave was aimed to hit little to nothing.
”The Earth is hit on average once a year by asteroids measuring around 13 feet in diameter – the size of an elephant. Meanwhile, asteroids around 25feet in diameter – which can cause an explosion the size of Hiroshima – strike the Earth once every four years on average. However, it is rare for these to be witnessed by humans, as 71% of the Earth is water and many of these objects explode in the upper atmosphere. Asteroids about 66 feet in diameter – or the size of a six-story building – hit the earth on average once every 50 years.”
Most of these land in the oceans to make huge waves sinking 100 ships every year while the remainder land in uninhabited areas as vast areas near oceans are underpopulated. We could develop a satellite warning system that would see these collisions, compute the wave paths and warn the ships that are threatened to come about, point into the waves to survive them, but NASA is too busy speculating on “global warming,” “the marine pH change” and other popular nonsense myth issues.
REDIRECTION COULD SAVE EARTH
It has already been demonstrated that we can send automated space craft to an oncoming comet and stick something on it. The package can be a solid fuel rocket engine to change the path in a way to prevent the collision, but we need a lot more than the Peoria, Illinois Astronomy Club to spot and compute the paths of these space rocks to get this job done. However, the guys in these clubs seem to have their shit together better than the $100K Ph.D.s of NASA.
The last time an asteroid of the “big rock,” like 60 foot class hit was in 2013, over Chelyabinsk, Russia exploding 18 miles above the ground blowing out the windows of over 7,000 buildings in six cities. Fortunately, it blew where the air is thin and had gone off near the surface it would have killed every living thing within a 20 to 50 mile radius. NASA has failed.
