How come we only learn about theses. AFTER THE FACT?

Thank Almight God for Jupiter. If it weren't for the massive gravitational pull of that lovely gas bag we would have a closer and more frequent near misses. Of course, there is a long list of medium-sized countries that the Earth could do without [;)]

If one of these things hits, I [i]don't[/i] want to know before the fact, and I hope the damn thing lands right on top of my head. Ignorance would truly be bliss in this case.

They should tell all AR15.com members the next time one of these object threatens the earth, we all load up, then blast it to pieces [rolleyes] More fun than shooting refrigerators....

A couple of good sci-fi books to read concerning this subject: 1) Lucifer's Hammer (Niven & Pournelle) - what would it be like if it actually happened? Plus lots of survivalist tips. 2) Firestar (Michael Flynn) - billionaire implements a long-term plan to prevent an asteroid strike.

Would a massive asteroid impact be as devastating as the global warming caused by SUVs? [:E] [url]http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/sl9/back3.html[/url]
