Works for you, or still dont get it???
Quoting: ADO

Yup. Measured.

If you don't know what the word means get a dictionary.

Also look up accuracy and precision.
They are not the same thing.

What the fuck is this supposed to mean???
Quoting: ADO

You really have problem processing textual information, don't you.

YOU are trying to redefine the meaning of the word "measured".
If using one tape measure measures my length as 180.2 cm and another as 178.7 cm it doesn't change the fact that it has been measured and that we did get useful results.
I'm never going to fit in a size S.

That G can't currently be measured as accurately and as precisely as one would wish is immaterial to the discussion.
We know there is one, and we've got a pretty good ballpark figure.

Quoting: Halcyon Dayz, FCD

Again with that??? let me get this straight, according to your very scientific standard of things, is irrelevant to have 2 different measures from the ONE constant thing used to calculate the trajectories of the bodies the punks pundits (you included) here said are nothing less than perfect, and for to get tha flawless calculation t is only needed a ballpark value??? A gift for you clown, direct from NASA, the way they calculated the trajectory of an asteroid...
How is an Asteroid Orbit Calculated?
An asteroid's orbit is computed by finding the elliptical path about the sun that best fits the available observations of the object. That is, the object's computed path about the sun is adjusted until the predictions of where the asteroid should have appeared in the sky at several observed times match the positions where the object was actually observed to be at those same times. As more and more observations are used to further improve an object's orbit, we become more and more confident in our knowledge of where the object will be in the future.
Get it??, no magical numbers or formulas, theory, observation, adjustments to fit the former. The scientific way.

Because it came from a completely different direction than 2012 DA14, specifically from the direction of the sun right in our blind spot:

What are the chances that the most damaging meteor in known human history happens 12 hours before the closest flyby of a large asteroid?

NEXT TO 0 CHANCE.. THERE ARE NO COINCIDENCES

Well, the Russians are saying it's not related to 2012 DA14.

"8:10 GMT: Oleg Malkov, an aerospace scientist at Moscow State University, told Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper that the meteorite went undetected by space scanners, likely because it was coming from the direction of the Sun. "We can only register stones coming from the direction of the night sky," he explained. Malkov confirmed that the meteor shower in the Urals was not connected to the 2012DA14 asteroid that will approach Earth in a few hours." [link to rt.com]

In german news they say the meteorids which hits russia where between 2 - 4 meters.
Also they say another asteroid (not DA14) is on its way to hit earth in the next hours.

So if we get hit from a 50 -100 meters thing....good night.

If it is 60 plus metres in D then it will be pulling smaller ones in - this probably explains the two over northern europe UK and RUSSIA.

Asteroid 2012 DA14 who will paas earth in 3 Days in only 0,09 Lunar Distance is getting bigger and bigger. Nasa says last week the dimension ist 45 meters.

But on spaceweather in the last days he went from 58 meters, to 60, than 62 and today 65 meters. WTF is going on there??
