Giant asteroid to hurtle past Earth
[link to au.news.yahoo.com]

An asteroid with a diameter of 400m will make its closest approach to Earth later this year.

Known as YU55, the asteroid would fly within the moon's orbit narrowly missing Earth, according to reports.

"The space rock will hurtle past our planet at a distance of just 201,700 miles (324,600km) during its closest approach on November 8," The Daily Mail has reported.

"That is closer to Earth than the moon, which orbits 238,857 miles (384,400km) away on average.

"With a width of some 400m and weighing 55 million tons, YU55 will be the largest object to ever approach Earth."

But US space agency NASA said there was no cause for concern.

"Although classified as a potentially hazardous object, 2005 YU55 poses no threat of an Earth collision over at least the next 100 years," NASA said.

"However, this will be the closest approach to date by an object this large that we know about in advance and an event of this type will not happen again until 2028."

Old news. And by the way, it's closest approach will be on the 9th of November, not the 8th.

If I were them, I wouldn't. Our last days would be a living hell.

Besides, people would find out slowly. Not everyone, but plenty of people would. Mindless debunkers might come across the info, but will reject it. So the people who might survive will be the types who have open eyes and ears. Now that's a brave new world I can get on board with!

No no no. It's 324,000 kilometers wide, and it's going to miss Earth by 400 metres.

I wish that when whoever reports news like this they'd take the moon into account also. I mean, if they can tell in advance when Jupiter was hit by that comet, they could do a little figuring for our moon too.

That Honda object is interesting - .9au then .5au distance to earth the last two orbits, so it must be close to .1au this time. Well the last 2 times and this time the moon is in range. Because the moon circles us, I'd say it is more as likely to get hit than the earth.

But hey, it might be just 400m but it's travelling at 90,000km/h

Re: Giant asteroid to hurtle past Earth
OK people this is it. When it gets close, the inhabitants of the hollowed dark side of the moon, are gonna bail out and head for Earth. They will come in peace. Some countries will want to destroy them. Some will want to house them. Major trouble.
