Asteroid hitting Earth: NASA says asteroid hitting New York in 3 weeks





BY admin | March 22, 2013








You should start praying now as Asteroid is hitting Earth. NASA says that asteroid will be hitting New York in 3 weeks and has sort of advised people to start praying


What NASA could do to defend the threatening asteroid fall over New York City and the U.S.? Nothing, but prayers; NASA administrator Charles Bolden Jr., in a reply to a House of Committee inquiry, has said that everyone should “Pray” to prevent the asteroid hitting the city. American government and NASA experts are panic that the fast-moving asteroid would make a big impact even bigger than a similar meteor caused in some unpopulated areas of Russia. The asteroid is fast-approaching the Earth and is projected to hit the planet in three weeks.


As per Donald Yeomans, NASA’s manager of Near-Earth Object Program Office, it might be lucky that we have three weeks for preparing to shield the asteroid. The U.S. and the rest of the world don’t have any facility to prevent direct hits of small meteors on earth, he added. He has further added that NASA has little early warning system in place to identify such asteroids. The U.S. space agency is hugely held up with the groundwork for finding a good solution to deal with the rushing asteroid.


Meanwhile, it would be better to use a space-centric infrared telescope to detect such meteors, comments Yeomans. According to the NASA manager, it has two key benefits; first, the sun wouldn’t block detection of the alien objects and secondly its infrared nature is more effective. It is reported that Russia failed to give warning about the meteor fall as the sun blinded satellites. In fact, as per Michio Kaku, a CBS News contributor and physics professor use of such a telescope would be a “no brainer” in the task to find meteors.


Whatever it is, the approaching asteroid is a big threat for the U.S. and many other parts of the world. The U.S. government has started to take very quick and immediate steps to avoid the fall of such a large alien object on the planet. Many specialists are optimistic that it wouldn’t hit the earth as it is in the sky. Passing though the atmosphere, it may lose its fire. But, there are many astronauts, who fear it would create a huge crash over the city of New York.


“An object larger than one kilometer, which would cause a global problem — we’ve found 95 percent of them already and none of them represent a problem in the next 100 years,” says Yeomans. It is said that a hit from such a fast-moving asteroid would have an impact of thousands of nuclear bombs exploding up at a time, he addedd. “Civilization would survive probably, but not in the form that we know it.”


It is quite impossible for the U.S. and NASA to avert such asteroids. During the hearing at the House Committee, Gen. William Shelton, commander of the U.S. Air Force Space Command, has openly admitted that the country had no idea what to do if the meteor would hit New York like the one in Russia. Form fast experiences, we are sure that effect of asteroids is less on the planet earth. There might have some massive falls in the pre-historic period.


“The odds of a near-Earth object strike causing massive casualties and destruction of infrastructure are very small,” says John Holdren, senior adviser to President Barrack Obama on science and tech. “But the potential consequences of such an event are so large that it makes sense to take the risk seriously, he added, admitting the chance for huge threat to humankind in effect of the asteroid fall.


In the past, asteroids hardly crashed to the earth on a regular basis. Now, maybe because of the climate change, everything has changed in nature. A new asteroid called Apophis is to dangle another huge threat in 2029. It is around 1,000 feet wide and it can wipe the entire world out if hit on the planet.





Here's the link where I found the article you decide what to believe or not. Just wanted to know if I was the few who heard of this.


Ok anyone wanna volunteer to kick my ass for listening to my mils stupid fake news reports????? I am sooo sorry for believing and posting this mierda!!!!

Yeah I saw on a major news website he was asked what could we do if it happened. Not that it's happening in 3 weeks. People are so gullible.


Quoting KayelynnsMama:

Hmm. NASA isn't saying anything about it.

The exact article is in northern news. Not exactly big media. It's a response article.

I saw a real article. There's no known meteor or astroid to hit NY at this point. NASA's point is simply that with their current technology they couldn't really do anything about it but pray. And apparently with the new way of tracking and recording these objects, they think its only a matter of short time before a big one hits.
