NASA is gonna be pissed that billions of $$$ is going to be vapourised within seconds. Would make for a hell of a show though, and a good indicator of what effect an object that size would have on hitting Earth (assuming it hits Mars).

hey, AstroMut. why don't you use your considerable
resources to hunt down which super-computer they are
using to calculate the precise trajectory of this thing,
thus enabling us to precisely tell whether or not this
thing will hit Mars and precisely what day and time it
will happen? 'kay?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1545225


Throwing a bigger computer at the problem won't solve it. The problem is that we lack sufficient astrometric data to know for sure if it will hit or not. Probably not, but we don't know.

No, that's not how it works. We don't have enough astrometric data to know one way or the other yet. Sorry.

 Quoting: Suzy Creamcheese


It doesn't matter how incrediby big and/or fast a computer is, the results of its calculations are only as good as the data going in. The current uncertainties in the data (such as the position and speed of the comet) are such that it cannot be definitely determined if it will hit Mars. More data (and more accurate data) will shrink the error bars and give us a more exact answer.

here is an accurate thumbnail sketch of what will

 Quoting: Suzy Creamcheese


That is a 2-body solution. You must have missed the part where it said,
"The applet was implemented using 2-body methods, and hence should not be used for determining accurate long-term trajectories (over several years or decades) or planetary encounter circumstances."
Anyway. New info:
[link to spaceobs.org]
The nominal orbit for the close approach of the comet is getting closer to Mars. More than twice as close as the current nominal orbit computed by JPL using astrometric data up to the 20th.

Actually, you said *accurate* thumbnail sketch. "Accurate" states a level of accuracy that "should not be used for determining accurate long-term trajectories (over several years or decades) or planetary encounter circumstances" explicitly does not.

This would CREAT a temporary second SUN for us. Perhaps this is the comet Nostradamus predicted. And so close to the Myan prediction too, just off by a year or 2. WOW. This would cause huge weather changes for earth, because of the energy from the blast would eventually hit earth. It would potentially heat our planet. Making it very hot on the surface of the Earth? Nostradamus predict 2 suns....

Well it does make sense, after all, Mars is the planet of war. With Mars dissapearing, there will be peace on Earth, and no more wars. God works in mysterious ways. It also makes sense now, why the Sun would rise from the west, maybe because the Earth will take on a new orbit in space.

The core of the comet will be moving 56 kilometers per sec when it smashes into Mars. The explosion it creates will be equal to 40 BILLION 500kt nuclear bombs(avg US and Russ arsenal weapon) going off at once, or 20 billion megatons of TNT, or 1.33 trillion Hiroshima bombs, or 1.3 billion Castle Bravo explosions. Its enough to kill all life on the planet if any were living there.

Astronomers predict a large-scale disaster on the Red Planet in October 2014, when a comet may ram into Mars, creating a 500-kilometer crater, the website of the Russian observatory ISON-NM said.
[link to english.pravda.ru]


comet core 30 miles across
collision speed 35 miles per second (126,000 miles per hour)

It may make Mars temporarily as bright as the sun. The crater left behind will be 500 kilometers across. A lot of rock will be ejected into space and become stray asteroids. This will be an epic event.

First of all, it isn't nearly powerful enough to split the planet.
