I wonder how that feels a planet hitting another one when you are on the opposid side of one.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34250665


I would imagine that initially the impact would thrust the whole planet sideways several hundred or thousand miles flinging everything everywhere violently and then the ground would have the consistency of water from being pulverized,and then a giant super heated air blast thousands of degrees F. would circle the globe killing everything.And depending on the size of the other planet,probably would turn the crust and mantle of earth into molten magma.Not a good day.

Im no astronomer so I lack supposed "knowledge"...

But if viewing an incoming "object", especially one of a high rate of speed, wouldnt you only be able to see the earth facing side of said "object"? So really how would one know juat how big this thing really is...maybe what we are seeing is really only a fraction of what follows?

M1 attracts M2

and M2 attracts M1 reciprocally

So if M2 mass was larger then the attraction is greater between the two.

The bigger it is, the more mass. == A different trajectory due to gravity.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33337660


The gravity of earth will affect it the same regardless of its mass. Physics fail. Even if it were a kilometer wide the difference in its mass would not matter.

In this situation M1>>>>>>M2 to such an extent that you can effectively ignore M2. Even if you double or triple M2 it still would be irrelevant.

Thanks Doc; you I have some trust in. (I knew the mass didn't matter)

Do you have any numbers that point to a distance less than the ~14,000 miles above the surface?

I would love for it to pass through the atmosphere. Lots of people pissing their pants as this thing breaks the sound barrier at something near mach 4.

It's still ~17,000 mile from the surface at close approach. CNN fucked it up in their report.

Only with optical aid, and only if you can very precisely and rapidly point that optical aid (in other words, a GOTO telescope is going to be the most practical way to see it).

Hit the wrong button on the calculator. Way faster than mach 4; close to orbital velocity as it passes.

So then if the size is bigger and the original size they said would effect a 750 mile area imagine what a bigger size would effect?? Of course though astromut says it wont hit so I guess we believe him, however if they were wrong at NASA on size then how do we know they were not wrong on where its going?? Of course if they were wrong they wouldn't tell us would they??

If they can not estimate the size correctly, how can we believe that they estimated the exact path?
