*** NASA HAS CONFIRMED THE EXTREMELY POSSIBLE IMPACT OF A 5 FOOTBALL FIELDS SIZED ASTEROID ***
Once in a while we hear about the possibility of asteroid and meteors impact on Earth. However the chance of impact is rather low.

This one named, 1999 RQ36 has been calculated has having a mere 1 in 1000 chance of literally destroying our civilization.
I know that impact date is in 2182, however this will be it for our grandchildren.
Peace.


1999 RQ36-1

The asteroid 1999 RQ36 may not be a household name, but astronomers predict that in less than 200 years, it may make an unforgettable impact. According to radar and optical observations, the space rock, measuring some five football fields in diameter, has a 1 in 1,000 chance of crashing into Earth in the year 2182.

:1999 RQ36:

Astronomers are also interested in the asteroid's potential to reveal clues about Earth's origins. Based on spectral imaging data, 1999 RQ36 is likely made primarily of carbon and is a relatively untainted remnant of the early solar system, formed 4.56 billion years ago.

The asteroid is the target destination for OSIRIS-REx, a NASA spacecraft scheduled to launch in 2016. The spacecraft, being developed jointly by the University of Arizona, Lockheed Martin and NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, aims to bring back a pristine sample of the asteroid by 2023. Now an instrument to be built by students from MIT and Harvard University may help the spacecraft determine where to find the oldest, purest asteroid samples.

NASA recently green-lighted a joint proposal by these MIT and Harvard students to build an X-ray imaging spectrometer, called REXIS (Regolith X-ray Imaging Spectrometer), to fly aboard OSIRIS-REx. The instrument will analyze the asteroid's surface for the presence of carbon, iron, oxygen and other life-forming elements.

That is honestly terrifying. I wouldn't want our grandchildren, or their children, etc to go through anything like an asteroid impacting earth. Scary!

Thanks for posting.

0,1 % chance to hit is relatively high, but in reality small.

Let's hope it misses, 99,9% chance.

2016 hey? hmm what a coincidence that this concept image I found today on a different forum is saying 2017.

It shows a nuclear device being launched from some sort of Arc like space ship. The failure part kind of scares me but it's grayed out :(

Maybe a way to fund their mission? Anyone knows the story behind this image ?
