Didn't anyone tell you the world is ending in late 2012?
We won't even be here to get hit.

Well, if we don't manage to kill ourselves, it is a good thing that there is a contingency plan.

We should capture it and put it in a stable orbit, then mine it Smile

Given the collective emotional maturity of the human race, I feel confident in saying that if we haven't managed to blow ourselves up by now, we're probably safe until then.

I can't get rid of my darn signature!  Oh, wait....

I'm more of the opinion that given the collective emotional maturity of the human race, I'm extremely surprised that we haven't managed to blow ourselves up yet.Straight

According to most astronomers 2012 DA14 will NOT hit us. It will pass the earth at about 27.000 km.

Why is it that I always think of the portal theme when ever I come across theories like this?

honestly, considering how cluttered the area around our planet up to geosync orbit is, if it passes that close it'll probably get "dirty" with some spacejunk or even knock a few operational satellites or smth.


so yes baltec, It'll probably knock SkyTV's satelliteP
