Headline: Asteroid danger: 100% certainty of impact warns space expert - 'We need to leave Earth'

Who is this expert?  None other than the "Chairman of Parliament for the space nation Asgardia" - Lembit Opik !

Of course,  mathematically, the probability is that an impact will occur sometime,  but how the Express has the gall to publish this as "Science News" is baffling.

Imagine that. No experts ruining the planet! 😊 When are they all leaving?

This thread has a danger of sliding into politics chaps, let's step carefully 😁

As long as Lembit sails off with the 'Cheeky Girls', then it becomes tempting 🤣
But as you say how this was published as Science, well that shows the quality of the papers these days.

I regularly see such "shock horror" headlines from the Excess come up on my google feed but studiously ignore them as nobut clickbait.

Same as "worst winter for 60 years" nonsense.

The scary thing is that we will get hit by a comet at some point in the future but could take several million years or next year....

We'll all probably leave at the same time when it hits. Problem sorted.      😀

Would/should the human virus be allowed to leave its dying host to spread the contagion further?

I have it on good authority :alien: [no not the Excess] that First Contact will be our last.

Knowing my luck I would move to another planet and that would be hit and the Earth would survive.

What if millions jumped off tall buildings just as the comet was supposed to hit?

And it missed? :blush:

Well, you know how these forecasts go. :wink2:

I would have thought that even after a comet strike the conditions on Earth would be far preferable to any other object in our solar system, so why leave? After all advanced life survived the last one....

Small mammals survived because they could burrow. Unless you have a JCB that you're not telling us about and a blue print for an enormous Anderson shelter.

Plenty of folk in the USA have done just that, trouble is when they all emerge afterwards they'll probably shoot each other 😂

If it happens I hope the people next door leave and take their garden lights with them. Not such a disaster after all....Dave

I've never known so many doom and gloom reports on earth's inevitable demise being predicted. These reports are, in the main, just scare mongerers seeking attention.   

My mobile is  inundated  with reports of this nature daily. Most are pure bilge at best, and one has to wonder if the Ads. that are injected between the tripe is by design. I Am seriously contemplating paying for an Ad. Free phone App. If such a thing exists.                Ron.

Well, Ron, if that is your attitude you're definitely not getting a return ticket on my Ark. :wink2:

Have you noticed the subtle irony of your signature from one sporting 29,000 posts? 
Do as I say not as I do? :biggrin:

Do what I do, ignore all media (except a few well chosen websites), i.e. NO Television, NO Radio & NO Newspapers....  

The world may well be coming to a premature end, but I'll not know about it....

I'm looking forwards to imaging the giant asteroid as it gets closer and closer, jut better be visible from the northern hemisphere or I'll be really annoyed 😂
