    (NEW YORK) ó A basketball court-sized asteroid is set to whiz past Earth next week ó but astronomers are unsure of just how close the asteroid will come or precisely when the flyby will happen. However, you can breathe a sigh of relief: Astronomers say thereís no chance the rock will hit Earth. NASAís team at the Center for Near Earth Object Studies (CNEOS) predict Asteroid 2013 TX68 will come within 3 million miles of our planet, but have also left open the possibility it could pass as close as 15,000 miles. Itís expected the flyby will happen around...

    May 21, "starting in the Pacific Rim at around the 6 p.m. local time hour, in each time zone, there will be a great earthquake,". The true Christian believers will be "raptured": They'll fly upward to heaven. "and on top of all that, there's no more salvation at that point. 153 days later that the entire universe and planet Earth will be destroyed." "I no longer think about 401(k)s and retirement," he says. "I'm just a lot less stressed, and in a way I'm more carefree." Brown is married with several young children, and none of them shares his beliefs....
  • Lessons from Collapse of the Soviet Union

    02/08/2011 11:48:58 AM PST · by Jack Black · 56 replies
    Transcript I witnessed the Soviet collapse, and then later on I couldnít help but notice that something very similar is happening to the United States. So, as a matter of public service, Iíve tried to warn people of what to expect. But I would just like to point out that Iím not any sort of policy wonk, or a wannabe politician or an activist. All of those things are very tangential to what Iím interested in, which is basically to warn people and to equip them for whatís coming up. The way collapse unfolds is actually very interesting, because a...
  • Lunar prospecting: Probe ready to touch moon water

    An enterprising robotic explorer will smash into the lunar frontier Friday in search of water ice hidden deep inside the darkest corners of the moon, spewing hundreds of thousands of pounds of dust high above the surface in a celestial event visible from Earth. Just four minutes will decide the outcome of three years of preparations, four months of space travel, and a $79 million investment put into the bold mission. Four minutes is the time that nine science instruments on the LCROSS probe will be able to directly study a cloud of dust thrown high above the moon by...
  • Close Call with Asteroid 2006 XG1 in 2041

    I donít want to get you worried, or even mildly concerned. No need to panic. In fact, just read this little piece, and remark with interest that an asteroid is going to get really really close to the Earth on October 31, 2041. It might - I repeat might - have a small, insignificant chance of hitting the Earth and causing regional devastation. Like a 1 in 40,000 chance. Those are pretty good odds when you think of it. Still not panicking? Good. The asteroid in question is called 2006 XG1. It was discovered on September 20, 2006 by the...
