    Discovered in January they claim this thing will come within 18,000 miles from earth impact. That is a little too close people.

    Discovery of PHA K09B81D 2009 BD81

    I was watching the launch today and this science guy just comes on and blurts out that we could use this new rocket to save the earth from the astroid impact....WTF????

    Maybe if we're lucky it will break in half and take out California too! Why worry about something like an asteroid hitting the earth. Just what can you do about it except hang on and hope for the best?:lol:

    o on the impact scale....you are doing a 'sky is falling' bullshit thing...the sky is not falling....(damn i slay me)....when the impact comes from space...i dont think we will know..just my humble opinion....note the use of the word 'when' not 'if'

    you need to look at the current impact risks....it will be a close call but we have had close calls in the past...and think about this..how many of those close calls are predicted behand and how many just wiz by....leaving us all going....that was close....

    I don't know enough about it but there are some gold mine shafts deep up in the granite of the Cascade mountains near me and they are starting to look appealing.
