“…It is thought the collision of a rather smaller body with the Earth, about 70 million years ago, was responsible for the extinction of the dinosaurs. A few small early mammals survived, but anything as large as a human, would have almost certainly been wiped out.
Through Earth’s history such collisions occur, on the average every one million year. If this figure is correct, it would mean that intelligent life on Earth has developed only because of the lucky chance that there have been no major collisions in the last 70 million years….”
If the Earth is hit by a planet-killer, global warming will be a thing of the past, along with most life on the planet.
According to Stephen Hawking, the greatest danger facing humanity is a major asteroid impact, NOT global warming. Hawking believes one reason we’re having such a difficult time trying to find life in our solar system and this part of the galaxy is because of the constant impact of planet killers.
What are we doing about it?
The Dems are going to cut the budget of the program need to search for planet killers.
“…“The consequences for human populations and infrastructure as a result of an impact are enormous,” says Bailey. “Nearly one hundred years ago a remote region near the Tunguska River witnessed the largest asteroid impact event in living memory when a relatively small object (approximately 50 meters in diameter) exploded in mid-air. While it only flattened unpopulated forest, had it exploded over London it could have devastated everything within the M25. Our results highlight those countries that face the greatest risk from this most global of natural hazards and thus indicate which nations need to be involved in mitigating the threat.”
What would happen to the human species and life on Earth in general if an asteroid the size of the one that created the famous K/T Event of 65 million years ago at the end of the Mesozoic Era that resulted in the extinction of the dinosaurs impacted our planet.
As Stephen Hawking says, the general consensus is that any comet or asteroid greater than 20 kilometers in diameter that strikes the Earth will result in the complete annihilation of complex life – animals and higher plants. (The asteroid Vesta, for example, one of the destinations of the Dawn Mission, is the size of Arizona)….”
When you start reading the headlines, check the science, and crunch the numbers, it tells you something. It sorta makes you want to believe that there is a Divine Hand at work – right?
God loves you and has a wonderful plan for your planet?
It also tells us that this world we live on, this planet, our lives could not have evolved by accident.
