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


dude are you retarded? Do the calculations for yourself!

Just wait till dr astro arrives, he'll set you doom nuts straight
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 33417634


So you agree with what astro says. I'm guessing you agree with him becase you understand the subject? or are you just following him like a blind sheep?

So if you understand the subject then please explain to me how earths gravity can cause a lump of rock to shake and what exactly is happening in this process?

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34341276






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.
 Quoting: TheSuperMarket


You're just repeating what they say.


Does what they say make sense to you?

Do we have (somewhere) a projected trajectory of which parts of the earth it is over at it's closest approach times? Does it come up from the south pole, or cross from east to west or west to east? Just what is supposed to be it's path during the crossing??

I have not seen this info online, but that doesn't mean it's not there and I've perhaps missed it. Anyone else found that info, yet?

BTW: if NASA is saying it could undergo seismic activity due to our gravity field, then they're also giving themselves a "way out" if the thing hits the earth. They will blame it on a shift in course due to a small quake caused by our gravity effecting the rock above us.

Just pray that if (heaven forbid) it should hit the earth, that it avoids nuclear plants and close proximity to the shores of any country. If it were to hit mid-pacific ocean and generate a huge tsunami, we'd at least have some time to warn the affected countries and evacuate their beach areas before the waves got there.

Given some of NASA's comments today, it would seem as if they're trying to give themselves a plausible "way out" if it should hit. Oh, and the Russians are still predicting an impact as of 7 AM this morn according to PRAVDA and the BBC.

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.

While NASA may not have recorded it they have seen tidal forces effecting an asteroid/comet when Shoemaker–Levy 9 approached Jupiter.

While a comet doesn't have the structure of an asteroid they should both be effected similarly but to different degrees.

Unless NASA has landed a probe on that rock flying by, they will get little -if any- meaningful data regarding "seismic" activity on it during its flyby. Which makes me also wonder why NASA would bother putting out this report. No trusting NASA.

Exactly, seems a bit strange to think of "seismic tremors" on such a small object, I think that the fear is: That the earth's gravitational pull will create very strong vibrations on the Asteroid, risking either to change it's course on earth, or break it apart,which could then change it's direction...
Torchia was born in 1620. He was apprenticed in Leyden under the Elzevir family. After returning to Venice he published small works on philosophical and esoteric themes. In 1666, Torchia published De Umbrarum Regni Novem Portis (The Nine Doors to the Kingdom of Shadows), which was in turn based on the Delomelanicon, or Invocation of Darkness, a work supposedly written by Lucifer and that would allow the reader to summon devils. The Inquisition condemned Torchia for magic and witchcraft and burned him at the stake in 1667.

I have a guess I've been sitting on for a few days, well, ever since the thread about said asteroid 'getting bigger as it gets closer to earth', that is..... I think it's on a collision course & it's a hell of a lot bigger than they're saying it is. I think they're going to try to use some sort of tech on it to push it out of its current trajectory & away from Earth & this is the approved "CYA" message in case they make a bunch of 30-40 yard wide 'little meteorites' that will slam into Earth, one right after the other, if they get it wrong. *shrug* just a theory......

Feb. 14, 2013: For eons, Earth has felt the tremors of asteroids striking our planet. From the extinction of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago to the felled forests around Tunguska in 1908, the space rocks keep coming.
This week, Earth strikes back. When asteroid 2014 DA14 makes a record close approach to our planet on Feb. 15th, the space rock could be the one feeling tremors.
New research by Richard Binzel, a professor of planetary science at MIT, suggests that many near-Earth asteroids experience a seismic jolt when they pass too close to our planet’s gravitational field.
"We are going to be looking closely for evidence of seismic activity on 2014 DA14 as it passes by," says Binzel. "This is the first case of an object coming close enough to experience quakes AND where we have enough notice to plan observations."

couldnt seismic activity move it off its course?

im guessing the activity comes from being so close to earth?
