Asteroid Might Collide With the Earth in 2182



Science Daily: Potentially Hazardous Asteroid Might Collide With the Earth in 2182.

ScienceDaily (July 27, 2010) — The potentially hazardous asteroid '(101955) 1999 RQ36' has a one-in-a-thousand chance of impacting the Earth, and more than half of this probability indicates that this could happen in the year 2182, based on a global study in which Spanish researchers have been involved. Knowing this fact may help design in advance mechanisms aimed at deviating the asteroid's path.

"The total impact probability of asteroid '(101955) 1999 RQ36' can be estimated in 0.00092 -- approximately one-in-a-thousand chance -- but what is most surprising is that over half of this chance (0.00054) corresponds to 2182," explains María Eugenia Sansaturio, co-author of the study and researcher of Universidad de Valladolid (UVA). The research also involved scientists from the University of Pisa (Italy), the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (USA) and INAF-IASF-Rome (Italy).

Fungus,
Congratulations are in order. You have discovered lens flare.

We'll get that Nobel in the mail this afternoon.

JK,

Those grapes are the balls OIM thinks he has, but the reality is that they are his hemorrhoids. The beam-fuckers really did a job on him and also on that guy Dennis McCarthy who works at Buffalo Museum, who looks like Nixon’s orphaned child, who wrote that book, while harboring hidden agenda, like Brian Pursley, the real name of OIM, a two bit web consultant.

Don’t expect him to answer your questions on plants that think…

Brian Pursley,

Don't worry. I will not be posting, so get a few new posts and all this will disappear in your archive. Or, you can block my posts like a coward.

Brian, or as he is known elseweb, Total Science, Agonaces of Susa and at least two others besides Oils that I'm aware of, suggested that plants violated Evolution because "Evolutionists" think that intelligence "magically" appeared 200,000 years ago.

In other words, the plant discovery isn't a problem. I corresponded with Dr Karpinski about it, and it's the usual nonsense from Oils.

In other news, I'm getting married a week from today, so I'll have an extra plate of BBQ at the reception in your honor, KV.

Just because...

Congratulations on getting married.
