    The White House Has Released A Plan To Deal With An Asteroid Impact

    Personally I would just ask for them to tell me the truth & I can get a deckchair out with a pair of sunglasses

    "One day, we are probably going to be faced with a killer asteroid heading our way, threatening to cause major damage to the planet. The odds just aren’t in our favor.

    To prepare for such a day, the White House released its Near-Earth Object Preparedness Strategy on December 30, 2016. It details how to stop such a disaster ever occurring, and how to act if worst comes to worst, and we are hit by a large asteroid.

    Such events are not unprecedented. Of course, the dinosaurs were wiped out by an asteroid 10 kilometers (6 miles) wide, but many smaller ones hit Earth every day. Most go unnoticed, but some – like the Chelyabinsk meteor over Russia in 2013 – can cause considerable damage.

    There are several institutions set up to track these asteroids – such as NASA’s Planetary Defense Coordination Office (PDCO) – but most agree we are not doing enough. We know of thousands of near-Earth asteroids, but more than two-thirds remain undetected.

    This new report is by a group that was set up in January 2016 by NASA called Detecting and Mitigating the Impact of Earth-bound Near-Earth objects (DAMIEN). The report recommends enhancing levels of detection asteroids and tracking them, in order to prevent an impact scenario in the future."

    Nasa doesnt scan the universe they just judge the data & probability supplied by those that do

    Sound like a bad title for another disaster movie.

    Some excuse to put weapons in space ultimately.

    The USA have been trying that since Reagan & his Star Wars idea

    In the over all scheme of things at present with all the wars and terrorist attrocities going on, an asteroid is probably one of the last things we should be worrying about.

    Or looking forward too. Nothing like a good fireworks display to take your mind off of things

    The question really is, where in the world would you like it to hit?

    The Middle East
    North Korea
    Iran
    Russia
    China
    Milton Keynes

    What if she starts looking like one of her half-siblings; Mia, or Chelsea (or, even, Taj)?

    Also, does Liv have her Dad's vocal talents?

    I'm in Pakistan, send a big one!!

    There's been doomsday stories like this every year and since after 2013 I've somehow managed to avoid being affected by them, until this happens. I'm slightly anxious. Oh well, if it actually comes this time round, we die and I can't do much to stop that. lol

    If it's a Whitehouse plan, it'll be very short and very predictable. Blame Putin!
