Massive Asteroid to hit Earth in 2040?

Recommended Posts

At only 500 ish feet across, it shouldn't do too much damage- just wipe out a county, unless it splashes and that's a good bet. THen it's tsunami time for most coastlines.

Here's a good site- it deals with detecting , as well, but detecting stars or near earth objects( like this asteroids).

I think they're building huge CCD imaging arrays( giga pixel cameras in conjunction with a telescope). It'll be the largest.

THe Ice road truckers even made a delivery down there in CHile. I think the telescope site was around 18000'. they were sucking wind!
