Hopefully it hits California.
You'll be asleep, so when it offs ya, you won't care. Bright side... you won't die from corona virus.

I was gonna say NY but cali would be good too. 😅 Luckily im not a city rat
Don't really matter. At 1 km, it's big enough to screw all of us if it hits near North America.

Just scrolling through the search hits, there's been an asteroid coming close every other week or so since the beginning of the year.

They've been fear mongering about asteroid impacts ever since they started watching for them. They need to keep people scared so they'll keep getting funding for their programs to map all near-earth-objects.

Given enough warning, an asteroid the size that ended the dinosaurs could be deflected enough to miss by dumping a couple tons of sand in its path.

Budget impact for this is maybe $30 million per year, IIRC.

No program... Sayonara dude.

It's been 65 million years since life was wiped out by an asteroid. The odds of it happening in our lifetimes are so slim that we should be more worried about dolphins rising up and taking over the world and enslaving humans.

what the **** are you talking about?

if it wasn't for those great brave people, the earth would have been destroyed the last asteroid that came close...

they will be at it again, to save the planet, and hey, if a movie happens to be made at the same time, cool......no more repeats of BIG, or Throw mama from the train..!!!!!

it's a movie. we can sit here all day long, and pick out things in every movie on how things should really be done, in every stinking occupation.. do you seriously believe that the average movie goer is going to really care...???

If you only knew what they were sayin' when the director tells the Native American actors to "talk Injun."
