Original Message How many of you have heard about Didymos?
Try to google it, and not much of info, well since the last week. Why, because of Russian meteor, because of the one that will most likely smash into Mars, and because "they" can't hide the truth anymore

it's that obvious that Earth is screwed if international community does not act NOW, and stop wasting time and lives on wars and hate!

Although they say - "Didymos poses no risk to our planet, but will come close enough to be observable by 1-2 m-diameter telescopes on Earth before and after the strike."

That's pretty funny when we all know how nobody knew that something will fall "out of nowhere" on Feb.15 and cause huge damage and over 1200 injured.

"For the last two years, (far from the public eyes obviously) ESA has been working with international partners on the mission concept, dubbed AIDA. Last week, research centres each side of the Atlantic agreed the spacecraft would target asteroid Didymos.

Currently under study, the mission would intercept Didymos around the time of the asteroid's closest approach to within 11 million km of Earth in 2022.

Didymos is a 'binary', with two asteroids orbiting each other - one is roughly 800 m across, the other about 150 m."
