MASS is a word that can't lie. The MASS of debris Ison was spewing was about 7 million TONS of debris per HOUR. This a fact that NASA had given us. That debris could be meteors, dust, asteroid etc.

The other thing is how could a small comet spew so much debris. Ison was a planet, not a comet!

The debris it left behind doesn't just disappear! So where is it? Remember also that Ison was dumping this debris for thousands of years, if not millions!!! WTF.

Do not trust NASA!! They lie, lie, lie!!!

What concerns me more with NASA is what they DON'T say than what they do say.
I don't believe they outwardly lie (often!) - however they with-hold A LOT of knowledge and information about the cosmos.

It's evident from the ISS vids online - so many audio references to 'bogies' as we see a UFO come into frame, yet NASA still maintains the old yawning lie of " IF there was other life out there.."

asteroids and meteors that would actually hit earth are classified.

so this thing will miss us.

No, they're not.
 Quoting: Dr. Astro


[link to m.space.com]

Indeed since 2009 most neo's have been classified. Now why would they do this doctor? Not like we paid for most of these asteroid searching programs...
 Quoting: TruthOverEgo


This idiocy has been debunked so many times it is now merely tiresome.

Quoting your cite:
"The upshot: Space rocks that explode in the atmosphere are now classified."

Where do you read that asteroids or any rocks in space are classified?

The only things classified were objects in our atmosphere such as bolides and that was to hide our explosion detection capabilities from those we monitor.
It has since been rescinded, I believe.

The "classification" applied only to military and spy satellites, not to NASA's or anyone else's observations.

I wish the shills would quit promoting this disinformation.

 Quoting: Reality420 52590516


Whoa buddy. Chill out. Ive never seen this "debunked". I may have just misread And will look into it more. My apologies.

But either way youd be stupid to think NASA isnt hiding a lot of things from us. So ofcourse I question.

There are four visitors reported flying inside a radius of ten lunar distances (LD) from Earth today. Intruder 2014 AW32 leaves the Earth-Moon system at 0515 UT. Further out, 2014 AE29 is outbound from 4.38 to 4.90 LD and risk-listed 2014 AD16 from 5.00 to 6.80 LD. And newly announced 2014 AZ32 comes its closest to Earth this time around, reaching 6.22 LD at 2350 UT.

This report was generated at 1725 UTC with new discovery 2014 AZ32 (MPEC) and today's DOU MPEC reporting additional observation of 2014 AZ32 and follow-up for radar target 2013 NJ.

Re: NASA warns of ‘potentially hazardous’ asteroid: 2013 YP139

A new, “potentially hazardous” asteroid has been discovered by one of NASA’s recently reactivated spacecraft – and it’s headed in Earth’s direction.

The new asteroid, called 2013 YP139, was spotted by NASA’s Near-Earth Object Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer (NEOWISE), and marks the spacecraft’s first discovery since being resurrected last year.

According to the Telegraph, the asteroid is still 27 million miles (43 million km) away from Earth, but with a diameter of nearly half a mile (0.4 miles, to be precise), an impact with our planet would cause significant damage.

NASA estimates any asteroid with a diameter greater than 0.5 miles could create worldwide consequences upon impact.

The 2013 YP139 doesn’t quite raise concern to that level, but its trajectory has attracted the attention of NASA.

Size estimates of ISON where around a diameter of 5 kilometers. Comets have a density around 0.5 grams per cubic centimeter. That is a mass of 261,000,000,000,000,000 grams. Roughly 288,000,000,000 tons.

Even if your 7 million tons per hour number was correct, it isn't, it would take almost 5 years to shed its entire mass at that rate.
