This Giant Asteroid Could Hit Earth Within 20 Years So YOLO

Mark your calendars for Aug. 26, 2032 as the day the world could end

The apocalypse is back, and it’s dressed as a 1,350 foot-wide asteroid headed to a planet near you.

A team of Ukrainian astronomers have discovered a massive asteroid, 2013 TV135, that’s on track to hit earth Aug. 26, 2032, Russian news agency Ria Novosti reports. The discovery was confirmed by five other astronomy groups in Italy, the U.K., Spain and Russia’s Siberian republic of Buryatia.

While scientists are unsure if the minor planet will actually hit earth, they estimate the explosion would equate to 2,500 megatons of TNT, or more vividly, “50 times greater the biggest nuclear bomb ever detonated.”

#YOLO, folks.

Look at how everyone here is behaving and most feel all of the information is a hoax. 


Now try to understand how everyone would behave if the leaders of the most advanced countries were truly forthcoming and assured the worlds human population that a true threat was looming. 


It therefor stands to reason that we would never be allowed to have any warning from the "powers that be" because there are not enough police on earth to hold back the tide of determined individuals intent on their own self destruction as well as destroying the lives and property of others.

this probably isn't real you never know just wait and see and guys don't believe TIME the are filling your head with junk

i have a great idea why doesn't nasa just send missiles to destroy the meteor before it destroys us im very young and i do not want to die young and you only live once

@jalenlikesminecraft Brah, it would take 10x Nuclear bomb today to annihilate, or even come CLOSE to fracturing a meteor that size, it would probably shatter and come raining down in pieces on some well developed country.

@jalenlikesminecraft Also:


It would take 100x current nuclear bomb blast to even come close to blast the meteor that size off its orbital, AND  blow the debris off of earth. As well as the fact that America, Iran, Russia, and a lot of other countries prohibit nukes? And, plus...  Dude, we could start WWIII if we missed with that big of a super weapon. Dude, a nuke that size, if we missed, could blast whatever country it was sitting on to pieces and smash Earth out of orbit, smoldering like a fireball into the sun.

@jalenlikesminecraft Consider this too, what if we missed? it would hit the moon, and the radioactive blast from the close encounter with the meteor would trigger an axial shift and--


Do i hear a meteor coming toward my house...  GOD  OMG

scientist predict things all the time that don't happen like they said that 2000 was going to be the end of the world was it no they said 2012 was going to be the end of the world was it no and Thay said February 18, 2015 that world war 3 was going to happen did it no all this is nonsense and when the time comes that's when we worry about it not now because if we worry about it now r life's are going to be so miserable so it is going to happin but not fore a vary long time but if it is going to happin in 2032 then we will worry about it when that time comes why worry about it now I don't get it live yore life wal you can because at one point it is going to happin but why worry about it now worry about it when that day comes but it's not going to happin Fore a vary long time live yore life

and people think I'm gonna believe a little cheesy news article that says Yolo hell yeah that's so believable

And people say and 2027 in Ashland supposed to come between the moon and the earth and seven years later it's supposed to come back around and the gravitational pull of the earth can pull down that's not even a guarantee

99% of scientists said that it's not even going to hit Earth's orbit so so I would stop talking if people believe this

the world is not going to end they maybe scientists or whatever they are but this is so fake and the fact that they said YOLO makes it even worst you scientists sould actually just let that happen if it is we dont know ok so if i were you i would just be quiet

Guys, it's NOT gonna happen, the Asteroid will not hit, destroy and impact Earth on August 26th, 2032, not at all. But, maybe in either 2025, 2026, 2027, 2028, 2029, or 2030, the Presidents and NASA said that we will evacuate and leave Earth, until after 2032 and in 2033. Maybe we can build more Rockets and Space Shuttles, and even a Space Station, before 2032 happens. Trust me.

Just follow the literature that has been around for 2000 years! Rev16:20-21. It's simple. Accept it & give glory to your maker.

Bad news, apocalypse lovers: It ain't gonna hit after all.  In fact, it never was said to be a threat by SCIENTISTS because they knew that they didn't have enough data to say exactly what its orbit was when the discovery of it was announced.  They simply said they were unsure and, like good scientists, didn't rule anything out until they were relatively certain.


Keep in mind, folks, that there is a probability of the Earth falling into the sun, too.  It's an extremely low probability that is about as close to zero as numbers can reasonably be expected to go.  But when speaking, scientists speak in their language of probabilities and people think "OMG!  We're gonna DIE!" when the case is usually the opposite.

Based on those odds, I ---could--- win a big lottery jackpot in the next 20 years or so.  Reporters and TV camera crews, please don't tear up my grass.  Park in the county road right of way.  Thanks.

for you idiots who still believe in god should be shameful because normally were are here to live , create , destroy etc... nothing more such as god. if god was real he would create other life on other planets or show sign that he really exits instead of legends of his son Jesus Christ and etc... also if there was heaven do you think it will store space for billions or trillions of people who died past decades.

What's at the bottom is the Red Sea...broken chariots...LOTS of them. Coincidence? No. Read the book & don't wait until your on your death bed to believe.

Have you read the book THE MYOSHI EFFECT, about an asteroid headed toward earth? Very funny, and fairly accurate.

Time magazine uses YOLO in a headline.  The end truly is near, for Time magazine...

"This Giant Asteroid Could Hit Earth Within 20 Years So YOLO" - Asteroid or not, we all die. Just saying, suggesting 'yolo' because of the asteroid makes me laugh. How about "We all die, so let me use proper English to emphasize the seriousness: you only live once." ?

When I read the word "YOLO" in this news... I almost didn't believe it...

Did you guys forgot that the NASAs already said that Earth's gonna go fine for more than 4 billion years or so?

Scientistsx will invent a way to avoid or strike and destroy the Asteroid  with the blessing of the Divine Power.

So this rock is less than 2 football fields wide, and we're scared that it might wipe us out 20 years later?  Pfffttt...  Negro please.

ChrisGallagher

@MichaelMobley perhaps you should go back to 1st grade and learn multiplication and division.  1350 feet is 4.5 football fields...as 1 yard=3 feet.  I'll help you out...a football field is 100 yards...120 if you add in the 10 yard endzones placed on both ends of the field....a football field is 300 feet. So 1,350 feet divided by 300 feet (1 football field equivalent) is 4.5 football fields.  May not be "enormous" but it'll F a lot of s*** up.

Regardless of this prediction, it will come true eventually. We get hit constantly by small objects. 100 years ago in Siberia k's of land were flattened. There's a huge crater in Arizona. We were hit big millions of years ago that wiped out a lot of species and changed the land mass. A big will hit us again but we may not be as prepared as this prediction. Scientists say if one comes from the direction of the sun there will be very little warning. These things are flying past us as we speak. Like a bad darts player with unlimited darts to throw - one of them will eventually hit the bulls eye

How does 1350 feet wide = "massive" = "minor planet"?

DeweySayenoff
DeweySayenoff

@dobe One of the things for an object to be a minor planet is that the object must be rendered spherical in shape due to its own gravity - like the moon.  This rock isn't spherical, So it's not a minor planet.

Massive is also subjective.  Compared to what normally hits the Earth, yes, it's massive.  We only get a hit from a rock of that size about once every 100,000 years.  But it's certainly not capable of a civilization ending event, let alone an Extinction Level Event.  Given that it releases about 2800 megatons of energy, (depending on the composition), it's equivalent to about a  9.5 Richter scale earthquake. (9.5 = 2.7 gigatons or 2700 megatons), it's nothing to sneeze at, so massive may be an appropriate adjective.

It's not small potatoes, but Armageddon it ain't either.
