I find this news extremely exciting! ( there will be abundant water on Mars, soon)

Thanks Astro for the heads up.

Wish Kent Steadman had still been around.

The time frame for Mars "colonisation" is around 2018, I think. Have you all seen the AXE deoderant advertisements, lately?

I'm working on my own analysis of the comet's orbit and the potential risk right now, but in the meantime since word is starting to get around about this I wanted to go ahead and make the thread to put this out there.
 Quoting: Dr. Astro



When do you expect to get the results?
It is precisely because it is fashionable for Americans to know no science, even though they may be well educated otherwise, that they so easily fall prey to nonsense. They thus become part of the armies of the night, the purveyors of nitwittery, the retailers of intellectual junk food, the feeders on mental cardboard, for their ignorance keeps them from distinguishing nectar from sewage. — Isaac Asimov

Very interesting news that's for sure. Will be interesting to see if we can get a front row seat of potential collision when the time comes.

At the same time, it should serve as a wake up call to all governments on earth that one day in the not so distant future be on the recieving end of such a collision. Something needs to be done NOW !!!!!
 Quoting: The Dudester


Oh something is being done. Russia has for quite some years proposed global cooperation to form an Earth shield. With our missile and most limitless fusion bomb technologies and the West's electronics we'll already be on our good and merry way towards being safe from most asteroids. WE didn't wake up after our meteorite impact. Recently we even calculated how many wide - angle telescopes are needed for an Early Warning System (around twenty I think).

Guess who doesn't want to cooperate? (Something about no nukes in space?) The United States Government and NATO countries. (Just like on the rogue nations missile shield.) Guys, we can't do this all by ourselves! We need some international help if we are to pull this off and not end up like the dinosaurs!

Astro, I know there aren't many people using this CUDA accelerated N-Body simulator thingy / program (Forgot it's name) But when you do finish your calculations would you be able to upload some files so we (who pirated and bought that software : P) can see with our own eyes what trajectory that celestial body will have. Ephemer(ides?) and such things? I'm probably getting it all wrong. Just finished files we could input into that program, please. This is my curiosity speaking.

Right now, our best hypothetical deflection techniques are intended for small asteroids that are years out from impact. This is a totally different level of trouble, and unlike the hollywood movies, could not be solved by stuffing a shuttle with Bruce Willis and a nuke.

If it hit's what are the possibility's of this jump starting the geomagnetic processes needed to get a magnetic field going ?

Because if I understand it right, any water made would be blasted out into space by solar radiation without a magnetic field protecting the thicker atmosphere.

or that's what I got from Discover Science Channel.

coffee4 that would be fun witnessing the rebirth of Mars as a living planet.

If this comet were to hit Phobos what sort of displacement could you expect? Would it knock the moon out of its geostationary orbit?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19606031


I suspect it would destroy phobos. What happens to its remains would depend on the kinetics of the impact.
 Quoting: Dr. Astro


I have been shown this collision on many occasions. I also have been shown the repercussions, however it is not for me to spread fear and terror.

You know another thing i just thought of is Mars itself, its either very cold at night or very hot during the day..i know Earth rocks when repeatedly subjected to extreme temperatures crack very easily.

It's this notion of cracking rock that gave me the idea of a huge impact crater splintering the surface strata all the way down to the mantle. That comet could leave one hell of a calling card on Mars, maybe even partially split the surface of the planet, permanently.
 Quoting: PolarPrecursor


I bet it would go something like this! Not a very small rock but a huge eruption. If we are lucky we could see the two moons of mars (Fear and Terror / Phobos and Deimos) get a little sister. We should call her Harpy ^^

 Quoting: Miku


Yes, the lack of a magnetic field would impact the long term outlook for any denser martian atmosphere, but not all at once barring a very massive event. The current rate of loss is estimated to be around 100 tons per day, but one of the goals of the MAVEN mission is to nail that number down to much higher accuracy.

Mars is what 1/2 the size of earth? If it gets hit, just shows how prone the earth is to the same cosmic treatment. Wonder if this is an Oort cloud object. With the recent earth sightings and multiple incoming potential super comets, beginning to think something perturbed the Oort cloud a few thousand years ago and the debris are just now reaching the inner solar system.

Maybe those saying 2012 was off a year were correct, because shit is getting concerning. At this rate Betelgeuse will go nova, a roaming black hole ejected from a galaxy collision will be on a earth bound crash course, or the higgs boson will decay to a lower energy state.

Hell at this rate, the comet will miss mars, but be gravitationally sling shotted right at Earth.

Yeah, doom......

hmm

Astro fk off, it won't hit.

The latest Minor Planet Ephemeris data suggests that an impact is unlikely, with a nominal pass of 0.015 AU (2,277,700 Km from Mars's surface).

You know what? No. It probably won't hit, but I wouldn't be honest if I didn't show this because there IS a possibility that it could hit. The latest JPL data has the nominal orbit with a close approach distance of 0.0007 AU and minimum distance still 0. That's interesting enough for me to make a thread about it and do my own analysis. Don't like it? You can fuck right off yourself.
