197 ft Asteroid to hit Earth in Feb 2013 ?

NASA confirms.

quote:

But if the entire asteroid is to crash into the planet, the impact will be as hard as in the Tunguska blast, which in 1908 knocked down trees over a total area of 2,150 sq km (830 sq miles) in Siberia. This is almost the size of Luxembourg. In today’s case, the destination of the asteroid is yet to be determined.



Apparently, Neil De Grasse is to testify over the matter to Congress but NASA thinks the probability is .022%

We'll all be dead before then so it doesn't matter.

I think it is doubtful, and I don't know how credible that site is. But, nonetheless, it is interesting.

Here is the stats from NASA

That probability looks really low but that's pretty high for these kind of things.

Translation: 50/50 it either hits us or misses us.

If it does hit ....say New Orleans. It'd knock trees down from Nola to Indianapolis, ID.

No gump, 830 SQUARE miles. Meaning something similar to 83 miles by 100 miles.

0.022% chance it hits earth

30% chance it hits land and not water

149 million square kilometers of surface land and it will only take out roughly 2000 square kilometers ---> 0.001% chance it hits in any given 2000 square kilometer area

Compound those percentages with the fact that we will have weeks to evacuate any areas where it is anticipated to strike, and that leads to me not exactly losing sleep over this.

Thanks for posting it anyway, it was pretty interesting.

Aren't near-orbit asteroids harder to observe, though?

Well assuming we live through this one, we have a 460 ft. wide asteroid possibly waiting for us in 2040.

THis one has a 1 in 625 chance of hitting us in 2040
