Asteroid "2003 QQ47"

an artists rendition of an asteroid hitting the earth

A giant asteroid is heading for Earth and could hit in 2014, U.S. astronomers have warned British space monitors.

Asteroids such as 2003 QQ47 are chunks of rock left over from the formation of the solar system 4.5 billion years ago. Most are kept at a safe distance from the Earth in the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.

But the gravitational influence of giant planets such as Jupiter can nudge asteroids out of these safe orbits and send them plunging toward Earth.

Main Entry: nudge
Function: verb
Inflected Form(s): nudged; nudg·ing
Etymology: origin unknown
Date: 1675
transitive senses
1 : to touch or push gently; especially : to seek the attention of by a push of the elbow

Posted by: Steve on September 15, 2003 05:18 AM

I don't think could truly happen. It's impossible.

isnt this 2003 QQ47 what the myans where talking about? i think it could be likely since its just been discovered.the years of compariosons; 2012 vs 2014 could be just a way of measure.

If it does hit earth or part of the earth are we
all going to die or not? Could it skim alittle and
leave the rest or will it take all of the earth?

happen.

Sorry to sound snotty and full of myself but that's what's needed now, It's funny that all of you un-educated people don't realize that the chance is 1 in 909,000 which is better than some lotteries, the fact of the matter is, that number will drop in time because of other interferences that havent happened yet, such as other shit knocking in to it and nudging it, etc.. The facts are there is going to be another staged terrorist attack in the US dealing with a dirty bomb, then there will be a Smallpox plague, followed by a small asteroid impact in the sea, world war 3 with a nuclear holocaust, there are 1,000 Mt.St.Helens volcanos under Yellowstone which are getting hotter, which will destroy 2/3 of the US, and then after all of that in 2010 and 2012 there will be a huge asteroid likely this one that will kill 2,000,000,000 people and followed by this there will be a poleshift. I suggest changing your ways, finding the path to inner peace, getting rid of your egos, and start reading. For comfort, death is just a transition, life is eternal. There is nothing to be afraid of, Peace

I THINK THAT IT HAS A CHANCE OF HITTING US. IKNOW THIS WILL SOUND STUPID FROM A 14 YEAR OLD BUT I THINK WE CAN DEFLECT IT

Posted by: JOSH on January 8, 2004 06:06 AM

WE WILL DEFLECT IT AND WE WILL LIVE! E-MAIL ME IF UYOU THINK THAT WE CANT AND TELL ME WHY NOT

Posted by: JOSH on January 8, 2004 06:08 AM

i just wanted to keep this comment at the top of saturation.

Posted by: cary on January 27, 2004 04:07 PM

I THINK TIM WAS CORRECT ACCORDING TO THE LATEST BIBLE CODE IT PREDICTS A DIRTY BOMB GOING OFF IN THE STATE OF MAINE,USA. AND FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO THINK JUST BECAUSE CERTAIN PEOPLE HAVE BEEN KILLED OR DETAINED THAT HAD IT IN FOR THE USA AND ALL IT STANDS FOR, GET REAL WE HAVE DONE AND CONTINUE TO DO THINGS TO OTHER COUNTRIES THAT REALLY REALLY PISS THEM OFF SO HENCE POSSIBLE BOMB SENERIO CAN'T POLICE THE WORLD UNFORTUNATELY. SO GRAB YOURE ANKLES AND GET RIGHT WITH YOURESELVES,BECAUSE LIFE IS SHORT AND THE SPIRIT IS ENTERNAL.INTERESTING THAT EVERYONE SEEMS TO BE CHECKING OUT MARS FOR WATER, DO YOU THINK THEY WANT TO SEND AN ARK OF SORTS THERE TO WATCH THE BIG SHOW? WATCH HOW OTHER COUNTRIES ARE SUDDENLY BECOMING BOOSUM FRIENDS THAT WERE GOING TO NUKE ONE ANOTHER,SOMETHING IS UP, ONLY BECAUSE OF WIDE SPREAD PANIC ISSUES I BELIEVE IT WON'T GO PUBLIC FOR A WHILE, GOT ROOM ON A SPACE FLIGHT? Pick out a nice cave high up,thats how youre family line survived so you could leave messages today.See ya!!!!

Look, the possibility is quite a common one, its a likely as an airplane crash. But the fact of the manner is peoples views on what this could mean are very distorted. Predictions and prophecies, and what ever some one could come up with. I think its a miracle we havent been hit so far, so i do not take it for granted. But yeah its like 1 in a million, so dont kill your self over it. And if NASA/the government thought it a huge risk i guarantee they would create some kind of program to defend against it. I mean take for ex. The pentagon is preparing now for global warming, its happening and our weather is going to be really really extreme... its only a matter of time, same with the meteor. Its only a matter of time. But whether or not it will happen in 2014 or 2012(which by the way the mayan did not predict, its the end of an cycle, and yeah it has significance) doesnt matter, it will happen just maybe not so soon, or sooner, you never could tell.

At the end of last year I wanted to have a "Top 10 Saturation Posts of the Year" contest. Anyway, I forgot, but Asteroid "2003 QQ47" was #1 on my list, for what it's worth.

Posted by: elia on February 13, 2004 03:43 PM

thanks tom. that really means alot to me because i spend very little time researching and finding shit like this. in comparison, kayslay spends far more time on posting shit that noone really reads. i am honored to be in the number one spot here, and i hope to be as successful in 2004. regards, pizza-bagel

Posted by: cary on February 17, 2004 02:49 PM

I heard that an ASTEROID passed between earth and the moon sometime in early 2003,it was only a small one though....the astronimers did not even see it until it was so damn obvious. I think they said it may come back.Does anyone know if this is 2003 QQ47?

Posted by: Terrance on February 19, 2004 12:58 AM

what amazes me is that people don't use spell check. it's spelled astronomers you ass-tronomer. and yes, it will hit the earth. and no we cannot deflect it.

Posted by: cary on February 19, 2004 01:26 PM

a meteor will hit the earth in late september 2012. plain and simple. if you have the chance to leave the planet before then, i recommend you do it.

Posted by: JOHN MCLANE on March 13, 2004 11:20 AM

Ok, I saw a few misconceptions here that need clearing up. The largest asteroid in the solar system isn't enough to destroy the earth... very early on (billions of years ago) something the size of mars hit is and we're still here (with a bonus moon as a result.)

If something hits us, it will not be pleasant, but of all the species on earth Humans would be the most likely to survive after bacteria... why? because we can plan, we can preserve foods, we can hunker down when necessary... the majority would perish in the event, but the remainder could rebuild fairly easily.

It CAN happen, but it's an extremely rare event (on a threatening scale.) Smaller events such as the ones that made the creater in arizona, for example, are much more likely and still rated as a once-every-20000 years event, and it would be considered a natural distaster (akin to a tough season of hurricanes or this past year with wildfires in western USA.) but it wouldn't threaten the human species as a whole.

Finally, we have reached the point where we could very well do something about even the largest asteroid, so long as we have warning enough. Even something as odd as painting it black would have enough of an effect on its course (from the sun's energy being absorbed instead of shed) over decades to turn a hit into a miss. For that reason, I'm certainly against the various cuts in funding for the search of NEOs that have been occurring worldwide.

People, I'd like to think that the chance was 1 in a million, but I know it's going to happen for a fact.

"The third angel sounded his trumpted, and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from the sky on a third of the rivers .." Revelation 8:10

There are numerous prophetic events that are told about in the Bible, and they all will come true. The only way to know this is to discover for yourself the truth that is in it - no one can tell you or force the truth into you.
Why do you suppose the Jews/Israel are so talked about and a focal point in world politics, as as the Bible says? You cannot concoct or change events like these. These are not possibly 'self fulfilling prophecies' although there are many who try to convince themselves otherwise.
I know many people would ridcule this whole thing, but those of you who have sense will investigate this further.

"For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great
number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear. They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths. " 2 Timothy 4

Sep. 29th 2004 -Toutatis Asteroid Coming Too Close? wake up people. you're thinkin way too far ahead. has anyone read or researched the asteroid. it has been named "St. Michael. On September 29th this year a 3 mile long asteroid will make the closest predicted approach of any asteroid or comet to Earth during the next 30 years..... wow that throws out any possibility of any thing happening in 2012 or 2014.... this is the one that needs to be talked about more and watched a little bit closer.....

Posted by: miles on April 17, 2004 09:53 PM

hey miles, either way we will deflect it and we will live. we have the technology.

Posted by: cary on April 18, 2004 04:49 PM

for one thing its 32 miles wide and it wont kill us all. but i think the governnment is suprssing the danger level so we dont get that scared about it. Think about, if we were all scared about this it would bring world chaos.

Posted by: steve on April 28, 2004 10:39 PM

for one thing they say its 32 miles wide which we all know thats not true. I think the governnment is suprssing the danger level so we dont get that scared about it. Think about, if we were all scared about this it would bring world chaos.

Posted by: steve on April 28, 2004 10:40 PM

also the graventational pull might tweak its path making it more likely to hit us. I hope it doesnt hit the atlantic because i live in NYC and i dont want my house ruined. any way if it is going to hit us they will probaly blow it up with nukes. WHAT ABOUT THE SPACE STATIO, that will get so wrecked if they blow up the astroid. So i guess we will see what happens from 2012-2014

Posted by: steve on April 28, 2004 10:47 PM

Steve, without knowing anything else about you, I'd say you'll be lucky to see the year 2012.
