People were joking at the store today about the fly by. An old man said "we're all gonna die" 'course he was buying a gallon of alcohol at the drugstore in the am no less. I feel strange today like something is off.....might be nothing.

nasa keeps saying it won't hit the satellites. how could they possibly be so sure of that?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 31781644




I don't think they could know for certain, but they can certainly figure the mathematical probability of the asteroid hitting any of the earths satellites. How you ask? Quite simply, although time consuming.

All they have to do is compare the trajectories of the satellites, to the projected trajectory of the asteroid. Anyone with a high school level education should be able to do this, with reasonable certainty, right?

with 4 close approach objects in the vicinity of earth expect some hectic seismic activity here ON EARTH!!!!!...in fact i predict an 8+ by saturday.....central america or indonesia,south pacific is my obvious 2 first guesses



hiding
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 29288454




Why? to predict an 8+, due to the imposing trajectory of near-earth proportions by some asteroid, I'd imagine you have some really sound evidence and figures you are working with. Care to share?

Or are you simply guessing, in which case your claim isn't credible at all.

 Quoting: Aristide Torchia


I said whatever to the report not you, numbnuts.

What is your point anyways? Does the article suggest seismic activity on the roid, if so, couldn't it be jolted out of its path? Or does the article suggest there is a correlation between inbound asteroids and earthquakes here on terra firma?

Either way, the news is utterly boring and that is why I gave this

whatever

This makes no sense if the object is 150 feet as they say
Enough gravity to cause seismic activity on an object so small would change its orbit and possibly capture it (not good)
Scary. Seriously scary.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 31781644


Most satellites are geostationary in a fixed position above the equator and far away from the predicted trajectory of the asteroid. Also consider that most of the time it spends passing the earth, it will be at lower altitudes than the satellites. There are in fact, only two points where it meets the altitude (on its way in and on its way out) where satellites are and lets face it, it is a pretty tiny asteroid and satellites aren't that big either.

In this pic the asteriod is spot on. The backround is moving but the asteriod is on a direct path to earth + 50.000 miles. Astronomers must have some very good instrumentation to estimate so precisely.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28658874


Its trajectory will change quite dramatically as a result of the gravity of the Earth but far too little to be "captured". However it will be enough to cause all sorts of internal stresses and strains within the asteroid. Again calculations show that the stresses are no where near enough to pull it apart, only to possibly cause the "wobble affect" being discussed.

I already replied to your question. As for the exact science behind it, most lay people wouldn't know.

Judging from the article, it has to do with the gravitational pull. That causes affects on the asteroids thrusts, and thus small, seismic activity occurs. Nothing really significant to anyone outside of the astronomy academic community.
