### Computer Simulation says an Asteroid (like YU55) could cause a FOUR HUNDRED FOOT TSUNAMI ###
I don't know why the intelhub article suggests the tsunami from YU55 could be 1-3' in height.

A computer simulation of an asteroid impact tsunami developed by scientists at the University of California, Santa Cruz, shows waves as high as 400 feet sweeping onto the Atlantic Coast of the United States.

Yes it COULD - but first it would have to strike - and YU55 won't.

The big question is, if it won't strike, WHY DID THEY PUT THE RED X THERE on:

1) Google earth
2) The FEMA drills?

Re: ### Computer Simulation says an Asteroid (like YU55) could cause a FOUR HUNDRED FOOT TSUNAMI ###
it seems to me that NASA could feed everyone false data to make you THINK the asteroid was not going to hit. this asteroid is relatively close, and if the numbers were off by what? 1% or less, would it hit? how accurate are amateurs compared to NASA numbers. Could the relative difference between the most accurate numbers of amateurs and the fudged numbers be enough to hide the truth???

I'm not an expert, and I'm not even an amateur astronomer, but I do know this....GOVERNMENTS LIE! They lie about little things and they lie about big things. Their agents lie, having signed agreements to protect the lies. And most people are easily bought out, especially if promised safe haven and big $$$.

Just wondering...amateurs...help me out here...how accurate are your observations??? Can you come up with your own numbers just from looking or are you relying on "official government data???"

Come the 9th, we'll see whether or not I'm lying.
When YU55 whizzes past and does nothing, will you then apologise?



BTW, I no longer work 'in the field' - i haven't needed to work for nearly 5yrs now.

Yes, there are plenty of amateurs who can check accurately whether an object is EXACTLY where it should be, or not - according to the data.

Not many could 'come up with their own numbers' - but a LOT can check whther or not the official numbers are correct.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 3991586



YU55 = 400m, velocity = 13,7 m/s
1950 DA (from the simulation) = 1000m, velocity = 17 m/s

E = M*C^2

YU55 hypothetical impact energy = 0,13 MT TNT - tsunami 1-3ft
(But YU55 will not hit Earth or Moon.)
1950 DA hypothetical impact energy = 3,17 MT TNT - tsunami 400ft
