On Topic... This is very interesting. Looking forward to the Slooh presentation. We don't often have large bodies pass THIS close to Earth.

You found info on the wrong asteroid.
Approaching Asteroid May Get Close Enough to Smash Satellites
Newfound space rock will buzz Earth in February, astronomers report.

A newly discovered asteroid called 2012 DA14 will pass so close to Earth in February that it might hit a communications satellite, scientists say.

"That's very unlikely, but we can't rule it out," said Paul Chodas, a planetary astronomer at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California.

Discovered several weeks ago by astronomers at the LaSagra Observatory in Spain, the asteroid is currently "a fuzzy little blob," as seen through telescopes, said Steven Chesley, also at JPL.

Astronomers estimate that the space rock is just 150 feet (45 meters) wide. But "the orbit for 2012 DA14 is currently very Earthlike, which means it will be very close to Earth on a regular basis," Chodas said.

Based on current projections, the asteroid could swing close enough to our planet to disrupt some orbiting satellites on February 15, 2013. The International Space Station, circling the planet in low-Earth orbit (about 1,200 miles/2,000 kilometers up, or closer), is in no danger, Chodas said.

Re: RECORD-SETTING ASTEROID FLYBY: On Feb. 15th.........update
The controversial paper was written by geoscientists Gerta Keller of Princeton University and Thierry Addate of the University of Lausanne, in Switzerland. Both researchers knew that challenging the impact doctrine would not be easy. The asteroid charged with killing the dinosaurs, after all, left more than the Chicxulub crater as its calling card. At the same 65-million-year depth, the geologic record reveals that a thin layer of iridium was deposited pretty much everywhere in the world. Iridium is an element that's rare on Earth but common in asteroids, and a fine global dusting of the stuff is precisely what you'd expect to find if an asteroid struck the ground, vaporized on impact and eventually rained its remains back down. Below that iridium layer, the fossil record shows that a riot of species was thriving; above it, 65% of them went suddenly missing. (Read about China's dinosaur fossils.)

“One of the myths I find permeating our culture today is that somehow the days ahead of us are going to be less than the days behind,” said Tumlinson, chairman of the board of the company. In laying out the mission and goals of the company, the six-member DSI panel strove to make it clear that this is not science fiction any longer.

This refers to the "comet"that came down near Yosemite.

The meteoroid originated from the Oort cloud and approached Earth on a shallow 19 +/- 7 degrees inclined orbit, moving in opposite direction around the Sun. On Thursday morning, while approaching it's nearest point to the Sun at 0.98 +/- 0.03 Astronomical Units, it found Earth in its way. It approached from the direction of the constellation Virgo, and collided head-on with the Earth at a location just north of Yosemite National Park, entering Earth's atmosphere at the fastest possible entry speed of 72 +/- 6 km/s (= 45 miles/s, or 160 thousand miles per hour). Moving towards Lake Tahoe, the small comet then penetrated to lower elevations where it fully disrupted in the atmosphere.

I actually dont see this one being a threat to us.

There is too much info out there about this one that anyone can look up and verify...

sure it might take out a few satellites...

but an actual earth impact... naw...

If we were to have an impact i'd imagine it be from a threat that hasnt been discovered yet...

anyways carry on... doom on lol

At it's size, the impact, while not a good day for anyone nearby, wouldn't be "doom" level anyways.

hmmm, well this may be some sort of awakening. i dont' see yet at what interval they think our new friend will be rejoining us, but we can expect it to repeat the extreme fly by on a regular basis.

scientists can't rule out the possibility that the asteroid might hit Earth on a subsequent pass, including the next flyby in 2020 ""

Data is changing on this one almost daily.
Last year it the asteroid was expected to pass a little under a moon distance, now 14000 miles.

We may have to prepare ourselves for manmade fragments falling on us first, then pieces of this very large rock.

If you have followed threads on Glp over the years, you know of other satellites that have collided, fuel that may have harmed us from just one satellite dump off.

What if our new found friend plays space bowling and blows several at one time? Then blows itself up and hits all over the planet after?

GLP posters are usually more hyper about something like this.

Surprised by the calm, or are we so used to false alarms that when the real thing comes along, we blow it off?

The asteroid, known as DA14, will pass by our planet in February 2013 at a distance of under 27,000 km (16,700 miles). This is closer than the geosynchronous orbit of some satellites.
There is a possibility the asteroid will collide with Earth, but further calculation is required to estimate the potential threat and work out how to avert possible disaster, NASA expert Dr. David Dunham told students at Moscow’s University of Electronics and Mathematics (MIEM).
“The Earth’s gravitational field will alter the asteroid’s path significantly. Further scrupulous calculation is required to estimate the threat of collision,” said Dr. Dunham, as transcribed by Russia’s Izvestia. “The asteroid may break into dozens of small pieces, or several large lumps may split from it and burn up in the atmosphere. The type of the asteroid and its mineral structure can be determined by spectral analysis. This will help predict its behavior in the atmosphere and what should be done to prevent the potential threat,” said Dr. Dunham.
In the event of a collision, scientists have calculated that the energy released would equate to the destructive power of a thermo-nuclear bomb.
In response to the threat, scientists have come up with some ingenious methods to avert a potential disaster.
Fireworks and watercolors
With the asteroid zooming that low, it will be too late to do anything with it besides trying to predict its final destination and the consequences of impact.
