Not so sure about that asteroid at 2,615,128 miles away, at least not on this pass. But this you can bet on. there is a Chinese space station that is going to come in. best estaments are between now and June. most of it will burn up, but not all of it. here in the U.S. we  go to great lengths to make sure our space junk falls into the sea. not china. we have even gone to the extreme of launching missions to attach rocket boosters to our space junk to change/control its decent. where is the junk Tiangong-1 coming down?
Well we know its not going to come down on the north or south pole.:D

We have already had their space junk fall on us back in july 2016.

Here their space junk collided with and destroyed a Russian satellite.

With all the technology and profit rush,Its getting to be the wild wild west out in space.

Well...... Almost all of our space junk falls into the ocean. Remember Skylab? The Australian government fined NASA $400.00 for littering their country. With the exception of an unintentional disaster, we've been perfect since. Those Australians really straightened NASA out. 😉

Was this the result of a massive collision with an extraterrestrial body? Perhaps one which brought gold to Earth?

Do you know what this means?? Australia stole our gold.

Slim This is something to consider. 2012 TC4  Its about 45-100' in diameter. last time it blew past it came over Australia and Antarctica last Oct. we now know it only comes around about every five years. earths gravity pulled it in and changed its trajectory about 10%. it passed by at 170,000 miles (270,000 kilometers) or two-thirds of the distance from Earth to the Moon.
That's a little close for me. :Just_Cuz_06:

If that baby is composed of the heavy black hole type stuff, who knows what affect it would have on things. Maybe it has it's own gravity. :yikes:

Slim maybe we'll get lucky and that sucker will have some gold or platinum in it. It's estimated to be about the same size as the Chelyabinsk meteor that exploded over Russia.

oh ya New nugget patch. :ROFL::thumbsupanim

 Slim I try not to dwell on the possible negative side of it. if it does come in, chances are about 75% it will land in the ocean. but we may need a longer dredge hose.

OK, OK. While Bob is away let's talk about what really matters...."Where IS gold?". :89:
Where it came from has been debated for a long time. :old:Granted, recent discoveries :idea:are giving us a better idea of where it comes from, but what nugget shooters really really want :yesss:is that sweet signal from their detector. It doesn't happen everywhere, it just happens where gold is now, today. :black_knight_standing:
After searching for over a year in various places,:hiker: I found my first nugget at Rich Hill near Stanton, AZ. :oregonian_winesmiley:Many other people have found gold at Rich Hill :Diggin_a_hole:after striking out elsewhere :2mo5pow:so my suggestion is:

"Go where gold has been found." :reading:

Slim,

Many other people found gold on Rich Hill before you.  They say to the tune of $900 million and still counting.  Here is an article about that:

Slim I have been saying this for years. If your new to gold hunting "Go where gold has been found" do your research, or Follow the drywashers etc. but following others is not where I want to spend the rest of my life nugget hunting. and its paid off.

What causes two types of crystallization in the same nugget? part of the answer is, Two different crystallizing elements within the same gold rich solution.

Here Morlock I'll give you a clue. and unless you ask me those type of questions here and not on other threads I'm no longer going to answer them at all. also some of this information is Proprietary Information. so you may not get the reply your looking for. but some of the information is here.

Hi Mitchel. I am well aware of Rich Hill's history but when I found my 2 oz'er up there I was like...:wee:

I got to be like that too Bob but never hit a big unknown patch -- and I'll have to admit that the old timers were pretty thorough. They did a great job with the tools they had to work with. 
*If I needed a nugget today to save a life, I'd go to Rich Hill with a GM1000.

Slim once you hit a virgin patch its hard to go back and hit the old spots again. Rich Hill has been a big payer in my life too. and its not done yet. I'm not going to mention names but it's also still producing some trophy nuggets too. When I was hunting full time I used to break it up. I'd hunt coins and tokens in (ghost towns) Id hit some favorite water spots, ( swimming areas on lakes (pleasant)and rivers. (Salt river) But when you hit a multi-pound virgin patch, learning more about geology became a priority for me.

Good point Bob. Unfortunately those virgin patches are getting fewer and further between. I firmly believe that the next frontier is under water.  
We have been talking about meteorites and questioning whether they brought gold to this planet and/or somehow cased gold to form. I'm pretty sure that some of us have suspected something like:

Slim I agree to an extent. I have to wonder why we are not putting more time and money into recovering it from the ocean? 75% of it (on our planet) is out there in the ocean.
But here is where a lot of exploration is going these days.
Here is a great show of technology and should give you an idea of where things are going. the car was a surprise to me too. I knew they had a secret paylode but didnt know what it was. :D

 

 

I've always liked the Titan rocket and SpaceX has perfected it.

These manganese nodules were  discovered back  in the late 1800's, and since the 60's they've been trying to mine the seabeds economically without success. It's just a matter of time before it happens at some point in the future. With more advances in AI, they'll probably develop completely autonomous underwater mining robots that will operate with little human assistance.

I used to have a 10 + pound box of manganese nodules, courtesy of Kennecott Copper when I was a kid. They were  oblong, blackish brown ugly looking rocks. Also had a neat paperweight with a small nodule imbedded in it. That was years ago and I've downsized considerably and no longer have them.

Thanks for the links Morlock.

If you search "smokers" on this thread you will find more on this subject. as I recall there is a company trying to get a permit to tap some of these gold vents off New Zealand I believe. I talked about this several years ago so your going to have to go back several years into this thread.

Here's an interesting story discussing how metals crystallize.
"In their paper, the researchers proposed one possibility: Perhaps a massive nugget of solid metal alloy dropped from the mantle and plunged into the liquid core. "
I think it's more likely that the "massive nugget" was extraterrestrial and crashed through the mantle and into the core. That would explain the Earth's expansion and continental drifting. Maybe even some of the massive flooding and rise of the oceans. 

**The Case Western researchers said that while they favor this new explanation over the conventional model, they're eager for members of the scientific community to weigh in with theories of their own.

Earth's inner core shouldn't technically exist

Thanks for the link Slim. and I agree with this Too.

More from my book.

You have to wonder sometimes why is there more gold in some parts of the world and not so much in others? It may be that the deposition period happened when the continents where still joined and as they broke apart and separated some parts of the continents where closer the to the impact zone or because of location absorbed more of the gold raining down from a super nova near by in space.

Here is a video I think you should watch.
A lot to be learned here about how we think and how we function based on our environment and where our future is headed and why.
I agree with Neil deGrasse on his reasoning on this and is why I don't think we are headed to Mars for the sake of humans alone and I haven't since the start of latest space race.
BTW Space X's Tech is not based on Apollo Saturn 5 tech as stated in the Space-X heavy launch video. It's based on old Titan III tech as I mentioned before in a previous post.
