There's An Asteroid Headed Our Way

"29075-1950 DA" is an asteroid that will probably impact the Earth around April 21, 2880 due to an encounter our orbital path! "29075-1950 DA" is an asteroid that is approximately 1.6 miles in diameter and it is known by Astrophysicist for having the highest known probability of impacting the Earth. In 2002, it had the highest "Palermo rating" with a value of "0.17" for a possible collision on March 16, 2880!

 Since that time, the estimated risk and orbital path of the asteroid and the Earth had been updated several times with the application of celestial mechanics, Newtonian Physics, Einsteinian Relativity and even Geochemistry and Electromagnetic Physics. In December of 2015, the odds of an Earth impact were revised to 1 in 8,330 and it has a 0.012% chance of impacting the Earth! It has a Palermo rating of −1.42. "29075-1950 DA" is not assigned a Torino scale rating at this time because the year 2880 is over 100 years in the future.

In the Astronomy, Geological and Archeological communities there are many discussion on one of the deadliest impact events on record! The "Chicxulub Impact" happened 66 million years ago and it killed ALL of the dinosaurs, there are merely skeletons in a museum now. The "Chicxulub Impact" caused catastrophic effects on Earth's global environment.

This asteroid expelled so much dust into the atmosphere that a "nuclear winter" happened soon thereafter and that made it impossible for plants and plankton to carry out photosynthesis. 90% of the plants died!

  1. Humanity is killing itself off already with Political Correctness. Our inability to to tolerate being called names by the media and those that sprout the total nonsense will lead to the collapse of society well before that fateful day WHEN a large collision occurs.
    Political correctness will send humans back to the stone age with the insane belief that recycling CO2 will make the planet burn in flames. Thus, humans will NOT be doing their bit for the planet. Our role as the only species capable of thwarting a major impact will have been abandoned due to utter delusional stupidity.
    As it is, we are displaying our stupidity and inability to learn from past mistakes of human mass hysteria by listening to the climate doomsayers. All the calls for abandoning fossil fuels (which used to be CO2 beforehand) which is what underpins our entire civilization when there is NO actual evidence, just rhetoric and shrill noise are testament to this.
    I could imagine a scenario in 800 years where the use of a rocket laden with nuclear warheads to deflect the asteroid are abandoned because of arguments that the CO2 from the rocket fuel will be too much CO2 for the atmosphere to handle. That is if we are still a technological species.

    1. 800 years? By that time we'll have diverted that 'roid and completely mined it out for resources. What a stupid article
