"Astronomers currently are tracking more than 600 near-Earth asteroids wider than a kilometer and there are likely hundreds more yet to be found. "

But still  :ooo: :wink: its only a matter of time.

Anyway Thanks for the update :cool:

Do other people actually think that a asteroid will hit the earth? That freaks me out because I used to believe that too. Are there any good links to research possible asteroid collisions?

The odds are "when" one will hit, not "if" one will hit.

I wouldn't stay up tossing and turning over it.

I'm well aware of that. Sorry if I didn't make it clear I was refering to events yet to come.

I think any weapons we have today wouldnt even dent an asteroid. It would be like shooting an ant at a bus hoping to move or destroy it.

I'm sure we could destroy an smaller sized asteroid, but not any larger sized ones. IE: Dino Killers

We could use Iraq's WMD to destroy any asteroids.

LOL I love it when they announce things like this. Here's a little trick i've learnt whenever they say an asteroid is heading for earth dont believe them, because rest assured if there was we would be the last to know :smile:

I think unless the thing is the size of a moon, we can either blow it up completely (we wouldn't do that), or we can blow it off course. There are also many other thoughts on how we could deflect one, but I think nuclear weapons would be our best bet.

We have plenty of power amassed in nuclear weapons, and im sure we have the ability to build new, bigger ones.
