Fact: Solar Flares Change Asteroid Trajectories. (for those who think I am trolling) Yarkovsky Effect
"I just read an article about John Holdren, the director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy stating that we need a plan in case a NEO (near-Earth-object) gets in line to impact Earth.

In it he stated that gravitational or solar radiation perturbations can change the trajectory of an asteroid towards Earth. Since the Sun is going through a phase in which it will become more active, would it be possible for a relatively large solar flare to hit an asteroid with a ton of radiation and budge it on a course towards Earth? Assuming there will be an asteroid in the path of the radiation from a large solar flare."

yes good question i was thinking about this,with the giant suspot turning towards us and after seeing the large flare in the other direction how badly could this effect yu55

Wow. So if the timing is done exactly right, we could have all our electricity turn to shit, then have an asteroid redirected at either us, or the moon, which then causes massive tsunamis everywhere. This is as doom as it gets.

That's why we need to keep watching these things.
The smaller the object the less accurate long term predictions are.

And of course we need a plan, and the technology, to deflect NEOs.

Thank you for this.

I needed validation for my own thoughts on this. hf

Thank you! Posted a thread about this a couple days ago, and know one could seriously give me an answer. So glad the sun hasn`t sent anything big, our way in the last few days.

The amount of force exerted by even the largest CME is too small to make a gross change in an asteroid's orbit. Over time, however, the cumulative effects of solar flares and other perturbations are enough to make asteroid orbits impossible to predict precisely years into the future.
