Asteroid To Give Earth Record-Setting Close Shave, NASA Scientist Says

There are 19 comments on the www.huffingtonpost.com story from Feb 1, 2013, titled Asteroid To Give Earth Record-Setting Close Shave, NASA Scientist Says. In it, www.huffingtonpost.com reports that:

The big day is almost here: on Feb. 15, asteroid 2012 DA14 will come extremely close to Earth. How close exactly? Just 17,200 miles above our planet's surface, according to NASA. That puts the 50-meter-wide space rock nearer to Earth than many satellite orbits (just check out the video above).

"This is a record-setting close approach," planetary scientist Don Yeomans of NASA's Near Earth Object Program at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., said in a written statement. "Since regular sky surveys began in the 1990s, we've never seen an object this big get so close to Earth."

50/50 chance the thing smacks us and causes catastrophe. In fact, I'm expecting another 1908 Siberia somewhere on planet Earth. All the bs you are hearing from NASA is called crowd control, learn to read between the lines.

They couldn't actually tell us if it was going to hit, it would cause a panic.

Millions may die, but at least no one panicked!

No seriously though, It is coming into our stratisphere at 17000 miles above Earth, Wouldn't it get pulled into Earth's gravity well? I guess it depends on trajectory?
