    My bet: We already have something in orbit that will, at the very least, alleviate any asteroid impact.

    A basic satellite, with a few rockets on it could do the trick. Wouldn't need a lot of fuel, just fire a projectile off with the force of orbit/gravity already factored in. As long as a strong enough explosion/impact hits the asteroid, it would LIKELY break up (Unless it is made up of a LOT of heavier materials...)

    That would still cause massive issues, as fragments would fall like a shot gun blast. But, it may be better than taking a .45 head on.....

    And this does not consider the fact that we MAY have lasers (or, even a potential Rail Gun) in orbit......

    As it is, it is highly doubtful the asteroid will hit us. Should always be ready, though....

    Now how is it that your ilk is prone to be entitled to idiot presumptions about others , while pretending to sport halos yet spouting such deviance ?

    First , to correct your half ass understanding of it , the " liberal versus conservative paradigm is intellectual buffoonery " and remains one of the most ill conceived propositions ever devised for political science , such that its founder david nolan needs to be dug up and turned over in his grave , such that just in case the figurative " resurrection of the dead " does occur the dumb fucker will go up rather than down .

    There are far more started threads on other forums challenging that numbers translate into votes and into political policy and none in this camp are pandering to the proliferation of fictional ishmaelism .

    I don’t see any dire warning of impending doom. I sure hope it doesn’t come down anywhere near Vegas – buy maybe somewhere west of here wouldn’t be all that bad.

    Would impact be only regional or worldwide?

    It could hit us directly, or it could miss us by 4.2M miles??

    What geniuses have that math figured out?
