Russian Scientists have discovered an Asteroid large enough to do significant damage to the Earth,on a collision course,and will impact in the year 2028...................................Of course Russian Scientists look at the Stars through Empty Vodka Bottles...............

 

This was mentioned in 2006.  Think they have zero'd this one in, and there is little chance of hitting Earth.

a 150 foot assroid would not cause a mini ice age.

Yeah. I know that. I was speaking on generic terms about impacts vs airbursts.

I know you guys cant resist an opportunity to make an ass of someone, but you must learn to choose your opportunity wisely.

I am not the wisest person.  A wise ass, yes.

Hey...there was a show on one of those channels that do shows like that show...


and in one of those episodes [Java has an inquisitive yet profound look in his face] it was about the Russians...the commie ones...finding a spacecraft there?

See? These rocks do not travel solo. They often have an entourage of smaller rocks. That is what Russia just found out with this airburster.

According to scientists, this rock is unrelated to the fly by larger rock passing today.
I am not convinced.

At the time of its closest approach to Earth at approximately 2:25 p.m. EST (11:25 a.m. PST/ 19:25 UTC), the asteroid will be about 17,150 miles (27,600 kilometers) above Earth's surface. 

The commentary will be available via NASA TV and streamed live online at:

and

In addition to the commentary, near real-time imagery of the asteroid's flyby before and after closest approach, made available to NASA by astronomers in Australia and Europe, weather permitting, will be streamed beginning at about noon EST (9 a.m. PST) and continuing through the afternoon at the following website:

A Ustream feed of the flyby from a telescope at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala., will be streamed for three hours starting at 9 p.m. EST (8 p.m. CST). To view the feed and ask researchers questions about the flyby via Twitter, visit:
