May 3 - nasa.....pretends to hit earth with a large asteroid

A planetary defense exercise at the weekend ended up 'destroying' an area of Europe around 100km wide.

The risk of a cataclysmic asteroid impact might be small, but it could still happen - which is why every two years, scientists and emergency responders co-ordinate their efforts as part of a fictional threat exercise designed to see how civilization would cope if such a scenario were to actually take place.

Part of the International Academy of Astronautics' Planetary Defense Conference, the simulation this year involved an asteroid that was a mere six months away from colliding with the Earth.

Most of the methods devised to save us from a large asteroid impact involve detecting the space rock while it is still far out in space, thus providing enough time to do something about it.

One possibility, for example, would be to fly a spacecraft into the asteroid - causing a small, but significant change in trajectory that could make all the difference between a hit and a miss.


image If the asteroid is very close, however, there may not be enough time for such a mission.

"The best solution to this scenario is not to get into it in the first place," said NASA's Planetary Defense Coordination Officer Lindley Johnson.

In the case of this year's planetary defense exercise, it wasn't the outcome that was important (ultimately nothing could be done in the theoretical scenario anyway), but the discussions that went on, the plans that were put into place and the work that was done to predict what would happen.

If we were faced with a situation like this in reality, it would be critical for authorities to co-ordinate their efforts and exercises like this can help to make sure that everyone is as ready as they can be.

Let us hope, however, that it won't be necessary to put this into practice for real anytime soon

Maybe all this alien talk is a distraction from a bigger threat

They've been simulating this every 2 years for like a few decades now.

One of their main simulations the asteroid always hits Europe lol

I’m honestly shocked we haven’t atleast been threatened by one

Oh thereís an asteroid coming, itís not if itís when. Jupiter has done a great job protecting us but one always sneaks through.

Space is very...VERY large. The chances of an asteroid of that magnitude colliding with us are extremely slim. Once every few millions to hundreds of millions of years. That being said we do encounter asteroids all the time. Thousands of meteors come through earth's atmosphere every day. They burn up in the atmosphere though. Every once in a while a big enough one will explode above the surface like the one in Russia a few years back

It's weird how everytime before something major happens they always have training exercises for it and the sh*t always happens still. Like 9/11, they had training exercises at the same time, with covid there was training exercises and now this. I think I know what the next major "threat" to society is going by these training exercises.

Just a reminder of a meteor landing outside a city and the amount of devastation it caused. This one was estimated to be around 50 feet so imagine if one were a mile wide

In two minds about how the powers that be treat the public with classified info on one hand very insulting but as I really observe how people behave over the last decade I completely get it...tik tok recording, donut chicken sandwich eating, reality tv watchers don't need to know anything

this looks like a cool way to watch this sh*t burn to the ground



these simulations should help everyone collectively visualize it into existence

The weirdest part about the pre 9/11 NYC exercises was that all the top officials planned to meet up at the World Trade Center and then decide what to do...
