Hey Astro, have you calculated the rough time it will take for the light to be visible? If it did hit, could we theoretically watch the whole thing go down on a really sweet telescope? That's be so cool to see.

I guess you simple answer will be "Yes, if you have a view of Mars when it hits."
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 19079034


It will be visible in telescopes if you're in the right spot on earth. The light from the collision will have taken roughly 13 minutes to reach you if I recall correctly.
 Quoting: Dr. Astro

I should further qualify that statement: Mars will be visible in telescopes at the moment of impact if you're standing in the right place on earth, but whether you can actually see the impact or not would depend on where it hits mars. I'm working on figuring out the possibilities regarding that right now.

Science can explain both possibilities of the events in Russia,,, it is certainly scientifically possible that the impact in Russia was BOTH related and not related to the predicted steroid. There is no other alternative...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35051383



Something has slung these in from the Ort Cloud. Its gonna escalate. Better be it Mars than us ,possibly, time will tell. I smell Wormood, Destroyer, or whatever you wanna call it. You know, the planet or star that every ancient civilization had a name for...the civilizations that built pyramids all over the globe, all separately, who somehow knew it was gonna return. Identified NEOs will skyrocket (no pun) in the next few years. This is just the beginning.

Mad respect too science homes, I very much know what it represents and don't disrepect that in the least.

Just fuqing saying to you, a "meteorite" that struck Russia, and now, a fucking planet blowing up comet hitting Mars. Just think how an astronomically absurd coincidence that would be.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26533342

It won't "blow up" Mars. Mars has taken bigger hits in its history. It is an exceedingly rare event, IF it happens. That said, for every comet that big that hits Mars, hundreds or perhaps thousands will miss it over the course of millions of years by the same distance as its current nominal orbit pass distance would take it. Same goes for earth, as a matter of fact...
damned
 Quoting: Dr. Astro


Ha ha, bit of hyperbole on my part, probably won't blow up Mars. But will be quite the SHOW at the very least, if it hits, or not. Who knows right now.

Hey, personally, find it very interesting, like we live in a very interesting times right now, with unprecedented hits on Earth (Russia), and now, maybe on Mars in 2014. Just something to keep an eye on, sure you would agree Dr. Astro.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 26533342


Actually I have an affinity to Mars,,, I dont know why. So I hope it isnt obliterated,,,,,,, as I hope we arent either...
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 35051383


What I am actually frightened by is that Dr. Astro did not immediately discount this article from pravda. damned

So it still might or might not happen?1dunno1

Great Astro. You could probably garner some temporary Internet fame if you were to figure out the EXACT specifics of where you would have to be and when to see it (of course only if there was a point and it was even visible when it hits Mars).

Not only that, if you were to work out a reasonably budget/affordable Telescope/computer program set-up that a lot of us could save and work towards as a personal (little less) Two-year goal.

It'd actually inspire me to figure out some awesome new way to make money if I knew I could witness an event like this.

40 BILLION 500 kt NUCLEAR BOMBS???? Yeah I'd definitely like to say I witnessed such a thing up close. That'd be some Youtube Science Porn Money Maker of the year!

Thanks, and please consider helping out us retards.

Actually I was thinking if it turns out this thing really is going to hit Mars, maybe I could beg Trinity to fly my scope and I out to some location it can be seen from so that I can provide live video for GLP. But I like your idea as well, I'll see what I can do with that too.

How much was your scope anyways? I'm developing a Smartphone App that's hopefully going to be Facebook/Instagram huge if all goes right, so splurging on a good scope would definitely be one of those justifiable personal desires :P

Meteorites from Mars have been found on Earth.


" How Did They Get Here?


The only natural process capable of launching martian rocks to Earth
is meteorite impact. Mars’ surface has numerous impact craters of
various sizes and ages. To be ejected from Mars, a rock must reach
the escape velocity of 5.4 km/sec, which is more than five times the
muzzle velocity of a hunting rifle. An impact capable of ejecting the
martian meteorites would have left a crater 10-100 km across. "

do these large impacts change the orbits of planets much?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1547105



They can. It is likely that Mars orbited closer to the sun prior the massive impact that caused the great scar. Lots of liquid water before as evidenced by the topographical geology and now its too far from the sun and would be mostly frozen water even with higher levels of geothermal activity which is assumed.

Right now I've probably got about $4,500 tied up in my current telescope setup. It'd be about $6,000 at retail pricing for new, equivalent equipment to duplicate the setup. I could price out some cheaper equipment that would at least be able to see/record/photograph mars.
