so now people are working on an "Asteroid Terrestrial-Impact Last Alert System"

Post by appaloosa horse on Thu Feb 21, 2013 10:55 pm

yeah
and supposedly
"The system is expected to offer a one-week warning for a 50-yard (45-meter) asteroid that could wipe out a whole city and three weeks for a 150-yard (137-meter) space rock capable of wiping out a whole country, scientists working on the project said."


i somewhat doubt you're gonna be able to evacuate the entire united kingdom in three weeks on the off chance an asteroid were to target it

Better than no warning and even if they can't evacuate everyone it still gives people the chance to prepare.

Think of them like air-raid sirens, you weren't exactly going to be able to evacuate a city whenever the Axis or Allied planes were on their way to shit all over it.

that's probably because in the 40s you basically had no way of knowing what was coming until it was far too late to do anything besides duck

Or cower in the sub-way tunnels.

But anyway, a warning is still better than none, some people might lose their shit, yeah but it still helps those who like self preservation at least try to survive and even then, if they can't evacuate everybody they can still evacuate who they can.

the only reason russia didnt react immediately is because they're a poor ass shithole

if a meteor was coming towards the USA they would blast it out of the sky into ash and gold while it's still in space with their fucking laser beam satelites
