I wish that were true. Out here in California, we still have large concentrations of them in Hackramento. Mad

I'm sure the chances of a meteor that large, AND the asteroid passing so closely (one a little more directly) to earth are...*ahem*...astronomical. Which is cool, because, hey, it happened, and from what I gather, they're unconnected. Which means it's just a really unique happenstance.

You know, guided by the Illuminati.

Cool

I found a video where Bill Nye ("The Science Guy") said that a difference of 15 minutes in the Earth's orbital position would have resulted in a collision with 2012 DA14. YIKES!!

But the good news is that, for the first time in history, we humanoids actually have the capability of preventing such an impact. Here's why:
  • There is a huge worldwide network of amateur astronomers who are looking for these objects and mapping them.
  • Once they're identified, the information is shared with the rest of the network...including "official government" agencies.
  • The trajectory of each object can be calculated with sufficient accuracy to determine whether a collision will occur (...a word of thanks to Isaac Newton Wink ).
  • It's not necessary to destroy an object in order to prevent a collision. We already have numerous technologies available that are capable of nudging its course by a fraction of a degree to turn a hit into a miss.
Of course, the smaller they are, the harder they are to detect. But then the smaller they are, the more likely they are to burn up (like the Russian meteor) or to cause relatively little damage. The bottom line is that I'm not losing any sleep over an asteroid collision.

...but if they predicted a trajectory that, say, were to hit North Korea... *shrug* :conspiracyface: Laughing
