For the pessimists with the glass half-empty;

[quote]Impact Probability: 2.7e-02

2.700000000% chance of Earth impact

or

1 in 37 chance

[/quote]

and for the glass half-full optimists:

or

97.30000000% chance the asteroid will miss the Earth [/quote]

When it was first sighted, the chances were more than 1 in 100. Then they upgraded it to 1 in 69, then 1 in 42, and now this.

I think as it gets closer, the observations are more accurate.

I’m taking Lorne Elliot’s advice and heading for Sudbury. What are the chances of it being hit by a meteor twice ?

Actually, by the time it arrives, we’ll have a good defence:

Pshoo pshoo!


#5

by 2029 we will just blow that shit outta the sky man.


#6

Bah, old news. That rock now has a 1 in 56,000 chance of hitting Earth, and that won’t even be until 2037.


#7

Food?


#8

No kidding, with all the shit about weapons in space, im not worried about some rock.


#9

If I’m lucky and a jealous husband hasn’t shot me, I’ll be 81 years young then.


#10

I’ll still be young and ripe.


#11

How many nukes whould you think it would take to blow that thing to shit?


#12

by terms today maybe 3?

by terms in 2029 maybe half a nuke?


#13

So in 2028 we should just chuck about 3 nukes at it just in case.
