Asteroid 2005 YU-55 is too small to be spherical!
What is the diameter at which an asteroid takes on a spherical shape due to the isotropic force of gravity?

Would you believe greater than 400 kilometres for an icy object and bigger for a rocky object. Otherwise they tend to look like potatoes.

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

We now Asteroid 2005 YU-55 is spherical from the radar images but it is nowhere near that size it only has a diameter of 400 metres. (or does it! but thatís another thread for another doomer)

So what you say! Well that means that the object may be an artificial object and the TPTB are worried it will fire its retro rockets (or the equivalent Alien non Newtonian technology) at the last minute and steer itself into Earth.

They just donít know so thatís why the test of the emergency system is scheduled.

Itís an annoying size not big enough to cause an ELE which we all know the only sound youíll hear from the authorities will be the slamming of the bunker doors.

Itís just big enough to piss off a lot of people who will want a full enquiry into why their beach front condo got sea water on the Persian carpets.

Is it a warning to TPTB to disclose or else!

Plausible or BS Iím sure youíll let me know!


PS If I get a message from Galactic command at any time what the go is Iíll post a new thread. They are strangely silent at this point.

Just went outside for a piss out my dick and saw a beautiful shooting star so I'm taking that as a confirmation from our space brother's that I'm on the right track!

You have posed the exact question I was pondering..Why is it so Round if it is so Small!?

And what is Eclipsing the Image?
The thing that hath been,
is That which shall be;
and that which is done is that which shall be done:and there is no new thing under the Sun.

We need more pics to confirm it's spherical

1) It isn't quite spherical - have you seen latest pics?
News report only last night showed images of it rotating, it's sorta spherical-ish, but not quite fully.

2) Asteroids are all kinds of random shapes, and 'not quite spherical' also qualifies as a random shape.

Just because this one happens to be nearly spherical, means nothing.

Dude, if you are serious about this Galactic command thing, you really do need to see a good psychiatrist.

Just a radar return and a picture made by a computer is not enough, so I believe we do not even know with this shit is really spherical, you cannot believe in anything nowadays. Maybe NASA will not try to get a picture of it with an optical telescope, and do not say the BS that is impossible, because they sayd the same BS thing about Hubble shots moon, and then leaked a picture of a pyramid on the moon taken by hubble telescope.

Have to agree with the OP.
A large body in space would more likely become spherical or at least rounded but to see a small asteroid so perfectly formed rings a few alarm bells.

What if this is part of a weaponised cold war relic?!?

See [link to en.wikipedia.org]
for a list of high atmosphere and extraterrestrial nuclear tests.

That's right!!

All done around 1960s!
