Report removed from internet after findingsreveal a huge asteroid will slam into Antarctica inthe Fall of 2012...
University of British Columbia Professor
published an on-line article that projected an
800m asteroid would hit Antarctica in the
fall of 2012.
His article was on the www.phas.ubc.ca
website for 2 days before it abruptly
disappeared. The initial data was gathered by
The Balloon-borne Large-Aperture Sub
millimeter Telescope (BLAST) at McMurdo
Station, Antarctica. The theorized asteroid
was then tracked by Canada-France-Hawaii
Telescope on Mauna Kea, which (with the
Adaptive Optics Bonnette) supplies probably
the sharpest images currently obtainable
from the ground. [link to www.reinep.wordpress.com]

if the ice broke away and melted... wouldn't the level of ocean water stay the same since the ice was already displacing the water? If anything the salinity of the water would decrease. Which could affect currents.

Antarctica interests me, so I did some looking up on it and apparently, Antarctica often gets struck by meteors, but nothing this big. As for the displacment of water, if the impact of an asteroid is huge, I would imagine it could create a tsunami. Just a guess. 1dunno1

I think if it hits, it will cause a huge rise in sea levels as the glacier is on land not in the water. The land will be rise so it will not sink beneath the waves, but we will be inundated.

Exactly. Water's weight (mass x acceleration of gravity) stays practically unchanged, yet the volume of a sqm of ice actually decreases when it changes to liquid state.

It will affect the currents and thus the jet streams which will spread the methane released by the impact through-out the world. There's your doom.

 Quoting: 12.21.12


Energy:
Energy before atmospheric entry: 6.95 x 1021 Joules = 1.66 x 106 MegaTons TNT
The average interval between impacts of this size somewhere on Earth during the last 4 billion years is 6.8 x 106years
Major Global Changes:
The Earth is not strongly disturbed by the impact and loses negligible mass.
The impact does not make a noticeable change in the tilt of Earth's axis (< 5 hundreths of a degree).
The impact does not shift the Earth's orbit noticeably.
Atmospheric Entry:
The projectile begins to breakup at an altitude of 39100 meters = 128000 ft
The projectile reaches the ground in a broken condition. The mass of projectile strikes the surface at velocity 80.3 km/s = 49.9 miles/s
The impact energy is 6.92 x 1021 Joules = 1.65 x 106MegaTons.
The broken projectile fragments strike the ground in an ellipse of dimension 0.833 km by 0.833 km
Crater Dimensions:
What does this mean?


The crater opened in the water has a diameter of 43.7 km ( = 27.1 miles ).

For the crater formed in the seafloor:
Crater shape is normal in spite of atmospheric crushing; fragments are not significantly dispersed.

Transient Crater Diameter: 22.3 km ( = 13.8 miles )
Transient Crater Depth: 7.88 km ( = 4.9 miles )

Final Crater Diameter: 33.6 km ( = 20.8 miles )
Final Crater Depth: 852 meters ( = 2790 feet )
The crater formed is a complex crater.
The volume of the target melted or vaporized is 27.1 km3 = 6.49 miles3
Roughly half the melt remains in the crater, where its average thickness is 69.4 meters ( = 228 feet ).
Thermal Radiation:
What does this mean?


The fireball is below the horizon. There is no direct thermal radiation.
Seismic Effects:

The major seismic shaking will arrive approximately 21.5 minutes after impact.
Richter Scale Magnitude: 8.5
Mercalli Scale Intensity at a distance of 6440 km:

Nothing would be felt. However, seismic equipment may still detect the shaking.

Ejecta:

The ejecta will arrive approximately 34 minutes after the impact.
At your position there is a fine dusting of ejecta with occasional larger fragments
Average Ejecta Thickness: 8.26 microns ( = 0.325 thousandths of an inch )
Mean Fragment Diameter: 3.53 microns ( = 0.139 thousandths of an inch )

Air Blast:

The air blast will arrive approximately 5.42 hours after impact.
Peak Overpressure: 1060 Pa = 0.0106 bars = 0.151 psi
Max wind velocity: 2.5 m/s = 5.59 mph
Sound Intensity: 61 dB (Loud as heavy traffic)
Tsunami Wave:
What does this mean?

The impact-generated tsunami wave arrives approximately 12.8 hours after impact.

Tsunami wave amplitude is less than 13.6 meters ( = 44.5 feet).


=========

Holy shit.... 44 foot tidal wave.... 8.5 Richter EQ...

And this if you are 4000 miles from impact.



100 miles from impact:

Thermal Radiation:
What does this mean?


Time for maximum radiation: 474 milliseconds after impact

Visible fireball radius: 36.1 km ( = 22.4 miles )
The fireball appears 50.9 times larger than the sun
Thermal Exposure: 1.19 x 108 Joules/m2
Duration of Irradiation: 8.26 minutes
Radiant flux (relative to the sun): 240

Effects of Thermal Radiation:

Clothing ignites

Much of the body suffers third degree burns

Newspaper ignites

Plywood flames

Deciduous trees ignite

Grass ignites

Don't be fooled by a 2010 re-emerging web hoax, no asteroid is headed for Antartica says Dr. Jaymie Matthews of the University of British Columbia

An unusual - and totally ridiculous - conspiracy theory emerged in 2010 on the Web connecting UBC Physics & Astronomy, the Antarctic ice shelf, and the threat of a devastating asteroid impact.

Quoting the version of this cosmic urban myth which started circulating in 2010: "University of British Columbia Professor published an on-line article that projected an 800m asteroid would hit Antarctica in the fall of 2012. His article was on the www.phas.ubc.ca website for 2 days before it abruptly disappeared.

The initial data was gathered by The Balloon-borne Large-Aperture Sub millimeter Telescope (BLAST) at McMurdo Station, Antarctica. The theorized asteroid was then tracked by Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope on Mauna Kea, which (with the Adaptive Optics Bonnette) supplies probably the sharpest images currently obtainable from the ground."

The ONLY true parts of this statement are: (1) there is indeed a balloon-borne instrument called BLAST in which UBC is a key partner, and it does collect data over Antarctica; and (2) the Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope and its adaptive optics system do obtain superbly sharp astronomical images.

The rest is ridiculous. BLAST cannot detect asteroids. And no one could extrapolate the orbital path of a newly discovered asteroid to predict two years in advance that it would strike Antarctica (vs. other spots on Earth). No such article ever appeared on the UBC Physics & Astronomy web site.

This is a story on a par with the annual "Mars as big as the Full Moon" hoax that makes the rounds on the web, except that in this case, it can cause people undue alarm. The only reaction to this story should be amusement, followed by anger that some people are willing to prey on public fears and their interest in astronomy.

Then we're into the Fall where you can trowel on the kOOk with the - "We're all going to die from the flu!!!!!!" and "We're all going to die from the flu vaccine!!!!!!" double-header. Nobody's heard those kOOkisms hundreds of times.

So this person has only been here two days but knows stuff about GLP that was posted over two years ago. Weird. Or maybe he is nothing more than a paid shill.

Now I think that maybe there is some truth to either the rogue asteroid or the rogue planet theory simply because of the posts made by this shill. If someone sends out a shill to wreck a story that means that someone does not want the truth to get out.

dont be ignorant to information. the people who post these threads arent trying to predict the end of the world they are trying to help the population as a whole into knowing what is going to happen. apparently elenin was found by an astronomer on a very small telescope. the funny thing is that before he "found" it, i had seen on nasa that they were calling it elenin. (remember that this is when i first got into conspiracys) so i honestly dont know what to believe other than just say safe and hope for the best. live your life and dont worry about petty shit.
