And now that we know what can we do about it?
I’m still stuck back at trying to figure out how it was caused by global warming.
Iran? Syria? Russia should pick better friends.
Well, if they’re Russian, they must be from Russia.
You’ve got to admit, “Sisyphus” is a pretty cool name for an asteroid, but the implication isn’t all that great.
On another note, the author needs an English class, and should also avoid headlines that immediately lead to “duh” responses such as “it came from outer space.”
We know where it came from and just what we have to do about it.
Around 5,200 Apollo asteroids are currently known, the largest being 1866 Sisyphus a 10 kilometer-wide monster that was discovered in 1972. Large Apollos are identified as being a significant risk to our planet, so the Chelyabinsk meteoroid acted like an Apollo warning shot.
Revelation chapter 9
1 Then the fifth angel sounded: And I saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit. 2 And he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit. 3 Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. 4 They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their foreheads. 5 And they were not given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man. 6 In those days men will seek death and will not find it; they will desire to die, and death will flee from them.
7 The shape of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle. On their heads were crowns of something like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men. 8 They had hair like womens hair, and their teeth were like lions teeth. 9 And they had breastplates like breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots with many horses running into battle. 10 They had tails like scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. Their power was to hurt men five months. 11 And they had as king over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon.
12 One woe is past. Behold, still two more woes are coming after these things.
I'm just sayin'...
“Where exactly did the Russian meteor come from?”
Klandathu, of course.
Preview of some point in the future (with soundtrack):
Is there another asteroid belt?
Alien space craft crashing, probably the mother ship.
