    Someone needs to make a new alien invasion movie, except based on the expected political reactions of today’s governments.

    Trump’s Space Force will take care of it. It will be the greatest asteroid super duper explosion in the history of this country. Believe me.

    From afar, America’s battle with corona starts to look like its war with Vietnam: knowingly fighting a losing battle that’s costing lives while proclaiming victory all the way through.

    Jab at The Hill was stupid. They are 100 times more honest and brave in their reporting than all of the main-stream media combined, Colbert included.

    I was taught that a blue moon was the 4th full moon in a season (winter, spring, summer, fall) not the second of a month. Where did this new definition come from?

    Corona is the latest Darwin Award competition, let’s hope that the Trump supporters win!

    Sadly the US government ignored the warnings and experiences of the rest of the world. That’s what happens when stupidity and ignorance reigns! Good luck guys! Great interview.

    85% of people tested for covid are mask wearers. (CDC) 99% survival rate. This is crazy.

    Any scientists out there like those covid-19 and compare similarities to antidepressants along with stimulants and steroids maybe even some chemo

    Next monday’s asteroid is most likely the upper stage of a 1966’s NASA Centaur rocket.
    And that’s what’s the astrophysics community agreed opon to be most reasonable explanation:
    1) It is relatively strongly shifted be the sun’s light (-> conclusion: No massive object, ie no natural carbon, stone, or ice asteroid)
    2) When calculating it’s trajectory back in time, it must have been 1966 in the earth-moon-space.
    Both fits perfectly with the 1966 Centaur rocket, for whixh we know the upoer stage to be fired in the very fitting direction for the current occurence.
    See by yourself, e.g. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/asteroid-earth-orbit-1966-rocket-nasa-expert/

    https://www.latimes.com/science/story/2020-10-12/fake-asteroid-old-nasa-centaur-rocket

    https://www.space.com/disguise-asteroid-actually-old-rocket-body

    .. or read the scientists’ discussions on the topic, if you have physics or engieering degree.

    The old the rocket stage will most likely orbit the earth on an unstable, far out orbit until march, when the sun’s gravity will pull the stage back away from earth.

    But when by this 0,5% chance the old upper stage will come too near to our atmosphere, it will split up and just produce some shooting stars.
    So: Nothing to worry about.

    Sooo: GO VOTING!
    The old Centaur stage won’t solve our problems. But you can help.

    Disappointedly, people like sensationalism.
    So, even serious scientists have to go with this asteroid as a boogey man to be heard.
    In this, I don’t share the high opinion on NDT, again:
    He does know this stuff very well, but doesn’t tell and explain it. That’s disgraceful, scientifically, IHMO.

    I would still like to know “What is the smallest (iron) asteroid that can reach the ground intact?” (He didn’t quite answer that one.)
