Re: Asteroid Recalculations -Reply





Assi,

Seems you are perhaps missing a critical difference between the
possibility of a large asteriod hitting the earth and common everyday
hazards ... with the ASTEROID, it's very possible that ONE hit might well
eliminate ALL OF US AT ONCE!  

Don't rest too easy with the figures they are providing either ... if potential
impact is 30 years away, even a SMALL error in measurement or
calculation could either mean a 'bullseye' or a total miss ... don't forget
about orbital perturbations which WILL occur over the next 30 years,
either.
