Asteroid 2012 DA14 headed toward earth may affect telecommunication.


It is a huge rock fast approaching our planet. Asteroid 2012 DA14 is headed toward earth and may affect telecommunication. Its size, speed and pictures are being frantically search by millions across the world

Asteroid 2012 DA14 is set to fly by the earth tomorrow and there is huge excitement in the air across the world with everyone hoping to get the glimpse of the large crater rushing towards earth at menacing speed. NASA officials have said that the rock is not going to hit the earth, but other reports suggest that despite passing by earth by as much as 17200 miles, only 15 minutes was needed for the asteroid to hit the earth.

Size of half football stadium, the rock is not going to hit the earth, but there are reports that imply that it may actually hit some of the satellites that have been launched by different space agencies across the world. Though there is no definite word as to whether it will hit a satellite or many or may not hit at all, there is a sort of uncertainty among space experts about the asteroid.

Though NASA found out the asteroid last year and also concluded that it will not hit the earth and will fly by, scientists at NASA have kept a close watch on it and its fast and furious movement. It is the first time that a huge asteroid, half the size of a football field is set to pass-by earth so close and there is excitement among the astronomers and skywatchers across the world who are fascinated by the idea of a huge crater coming so close. But alas, people in the United States may not be able to watch the asteroid 2012 DA14 as it will be passing through their area during daytime.

The rock is so huge that people of all nationalities and all faiths want to be aware of its movement. People have been keeping a close watch on the movement of the massive asteroid. Astronomers are very excited about the 150 feet diameter Asteroid DA 14 that will fly by earth without harming the Earth or its residents. NASA didn’t start keeping track of asteroid of significant size a very long time ago. They say that it is just one and half decade ago that they started keeping track of the asteroid that may be able to come close to earth. So when the scientists say that it will be the first asteroid of this size will come that close to earthy they apparently mean that this is the first time in the last 15 years no such big or bigger asteroid came so close to earth. Scientists say that on an average an asteroid of this size or bigger flies by earth every forty years. They also say in the same breath that this asteroid’s chances of hitting the earth was just once in 1200 years. When closes to earth, it will still be a good 17,200 miles or 27,700 kilometers away from planet earth.

A report even suggests that the asteroid may endanger satellites that have been sent by many countries. But Dr Dan Brown, from Nottingham Trent University, said the asteroid could put telecommunication satellites – that ping data between our mobile phones – in danger. This must be a wakeup call for scientists all over the world. So please keep a tab on it and pray that it just flies by without hitting any satellite.

Let us see, it is almost 1pm central time.

We may suffer the same fate as the LA cop killer.

Burn, baby, burn.

Isn't it interesting that the moon is 239,000 miles from us and this thing was 17,000 miles from us(6x the distance from NYC to LA). This "rock" would have caused castostrophic damage even though it was only 1/2 the size of a football field. Travelling at between 12,427mph (20,000kph) and 18,641mph (30,000kph)- around five miles (8km) a second, or eight times the speed of a rifle bullet! 2012 DA14 is carrying a kinetic energy of 3.5 megatons - 200 times the yield of a Hiroshima-scale atomic bomb blast - most of which would be delivered to its impact site. Yes, this particular space rock is a city killer. We technically only missed it by 15 minutes in relation to our orbit!

More proof that God has blessed us by making us space rock proof. He did however kill the dinosaurs 5000 yrs ago with a space rock because he made them and they started global warming.

God is worried that someone will figure out that his dinosaurs caused global warming so he invented Al Gore so Al could blame it on George Bush. God works in mysterious ways.

Yea, not what I was referring to in any way! Hahaha. But didn't they jump on that one quick. I would more quickly believe that NASA diverted the Asteroid by whatever means, and what hit Russia was what shattered off!!

This is topix... don't take it to serious

By the way the reason God killed the dinosaurs is because of their huge carbon footprint. See how I did that.

A 49 foot meteor streaked across the sky and exploded over Russia's Ural Mountains with the power of an atomic bomb Friday, its sonic blasts shattering countless windows and injuring about 1,100 people

It looks like a few of you got to close to touching your own mortality. Deal with it....somehow.
