Comet Elenin: 10 Facts You Need to Know | Astronotes
Before anyone goes all "conspiracy theory" nutso on this.
EDIT: Damn, of all the people to beat me with the link it had to be Eric.
Its supposed to only pass us, not hit us.
Ummm what? If our moon gets moved out of place, it could cause a lot of problems for us on earth(tides messed up, other natural stuff screwed up).
Fuck we're all dead!
I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords.
does it means we are gonig to live?
Yes, it is supposed to pass us, not hit us, like I said already.
We'll be fine. The comet isn't going to hit us, it's just going to be in our solar system. Even if it does hit us, the damn thing's only 3-4 kilometers wide (1-2 miles wide for us imperial measurement users).
Though it would be hilarious to have the comet hit the guy that said that Pluto wasn't a real planet. Divine punishment!
Well, until next December at least.
well all thsoe craters on the moon are the crash ladns of soem coments and asteroids
i dont belivie in the 2012 crap
Small ones. Now I'm no moon expert, but if this were to hit it, I believe it could cause some serious problems. (But its not going to hit the moon)
Just toss Ivan Ooze into it.
I do not think this would be a big enough space-snowball to move the moon out of place, though it would likely leave one wicked crater in the surface. On the plus side, we would then know for sure there was water on the moon, right in that crater.
Its moot though, since it's going to miss the moon too.
Yes, and those craters were formed over billions of years, during which time numerous asteroids have hit earth as well. The earth is a much bigger target than the moon. It would be like trying to stop paintballs with your hands. Also, remember the moon has no atmosphere, so there's nothing to cause an extralunar/terrestrial object to burn up/shrink/slow down before impact due to atmospheric friction.
Thats good to know
I know that, I was just talking in the hypothetical situation of it were to hit it.
??? I assume you mean the moon?
