April 13, 2036, a bad day on Earth

Pro Member First Officer
oreo005 First Officer

Read this out of the newspaper.

Mark your calender for Sunday, April 13, 2036. That's when a 1,000 foot-wide asteroid named Apaphis could hit Earth with enough force to obliterate a small state.

A direct hit on urban area could unleash more destruction than Hurricane Katrina, the 2004 Asian tsunami and the 1906 San Francisco earthquake COMBINED!
------
This makes me feel so sad for what and who it hits Crying or Very sad . Although this may be a long time and some of you might be dead, lets pray for those who are alive at this time and let them have a safe one. God bless the Earth and everyone on it.

Are you sure, because scientists always research on that and never say things like we are going to die, i don´t think a newspaper will alarm population like that. 2036 you say, well it is a long way to 2036. If this is truth and this meteor will crash enjoy the rest of life. Surprised

Well it says that it's a chance of 1-6,250 of getting hit but they said it was to big to ignore.

if it was such a big thing then why have i not heard anything about it, if something like that was going to happen then everyone would be talking about it, im sorry but they are making it sound worse than what it is, millions of rocks fly past and hit the earth all the time, its not uncommon

Well,I say Censored this all.I'm happy to live on earth,and I f we're gonna die,we can't do anything against it.I remember magazines saying things like"scientists agree,recent earthquakes prove that armaggedon is here!Test:Will you survive?" or otherwise "this week moon will collide with earth!".Well,I never noticed the moon colliding with earth,did you?remember ,even IFan asteroid would collide with earth,IF it doesn't change course,IF it doesn't burn up in our atmosphere,IF we have the 1 in 6,250 chance of it hitting earth,75% of earth is covered in water.now what are the chances of it killing humans?

I agree its all a load of rubbish, but if it hits oceans / seas, then it causes huge tidal waves which travel for hundreds of miles, which would kill the millions of people Wink

You can't leave us hanging like that!!!!!

What happened? Did it hit the earth and kill everyone? Or did it miss?

Wink I remember a computer recreation of that one on the Discovery Channel, it came so close that it actually got sling-shotted around the Earth by gravity.

i'd love so much to die by an astroid hitting earth. It would be the best way to die. As i am very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, intrested in space. It would be a great pleasure (i'm not saying i want to die). Well you havent heard of it because it's going to be in a very long time.

As for now, keep flying!

Here's more info.

Apophis, it turns out, will come within as little as 15,000 miles from of Earth and will be visible to the naked eye in Europe and Africa on the evening of that April date, but will zoom safely past. Good news indeed.

But there are still some reasons for concern. As it passes so close the asteroid, tugged by Earth's gravity, will change its orbital path. That could be very bad news. If the altered orbit results in Apophis passing through any of several "keyholes," specific regions of space only about 2,000 feet across, the asteroid would then return periodically to dangerously close encounters with Earth. Passage through the keyhole that astronomers think most likely to be the asteroid's target in 2029, for example, would bring it back to the near vicinity of Earth every seven years, beginning in 2036, posing a serious threat each time.

No, it is not a hoax but there ar a lot of "ifs" in there that haven't been verified as of yet. But, whatever makes you think that because something is in a newspaper, it is not a hoax.

Oh well. Too bad, I'm gonna die in 10 years. Well, I hope that either humans will have created some deflection unit or that the whole thing is a false estimate. I'll beleive it if all the news start spurting out about it and that people start thinking how we can avoid it.
I'll just build myself un underwater bunker, with supplies,animals and plants. I'll survive the dust cloud that'll ruin the earth, and I'll survive the tsunami cause by it because I'll be too deep underwater.

Their plans are to either use a rocket to destroy the astroid or use these laser things that push the astroid away... or just let us die ROFL no, wait, is that sopposed to be funny?

Pro Member Chief Captain

Great Plans. Load a rocket with tnt, and even if we do manage somehow to blow it up, we'll have worse problems, space will be laden with debris,
if not radioactive stuff if we use a abomb. Anyway, they can't say lasers, cause they don't have any.They have concentrated heat rays in the for of light, but it can't reach farther than our atmosphere and it can't push anything, only burn.
