Even if it misses Mars it will come nowhere near Earth.

If it misses Mars, has there been any talk about what the gravity of Mars and it's moons will do to the comets trajectory?  Or is it not a factor?

That would be cool. 2 impacts on planets within 20 years.
Jupiter and then Mars.

On the other hand, maybe we can redirect it to North Korea.  :w00t:

I know, I know, that would still cause world-wide damage.
But I still like it!

nuclear weapon definitely not!!!it might pollute The earth's atmosphere and etc after they blow up it might somehow the radiation reach back earth.but sometimes I say certain things that seem harsh but this is a honest question here.1)do we really need for something to happen in order to react or see the potential dangerous side effects and effects of anything???.I mean come people asteroids and comets and nuclear weapons are just bad news overall.weapons do not protect.the earth and life is not dangerous we are taught to think that way about anything.should we stop using common sense and intelligence of course not nor be ignorant either.there are forces at work and behind The scenes but its not what most may think though.another thing I have noticed about humanity is everything is a crisis these days!!!

Why would you wish more suffering on the people of a totalitarian state like North Korea?
Over two million people have estimated to have died in the last 15 years from food shortages, famine etc. (around 10% of the population) .
Also the state's record on human rights abuses against it's people is disgraceful. Reports of torture, public executions, slave labour, and forced abortions and infanticides in prison camps

Quote

The North Korean government maintains ten concentration camps, with a total of between 200,000 and 250,000 prisoners contained therein. Conditions in the camps are terrible, and the annual casualty rate has been estimated as high as 25%. The North Korean government has no due process system, imprisoning, torturing, and executing prisoners at will. Public executions, in particular, are a common sight in North Korea.


Don't you think they have suffered enough?

I guess we found a new use for Nuclear Weapons. But i highly doubt the World expects America to use up all of its arsenal at once. China and Russia better help are asses.

There would definitely be no one laughing if a 20-mile-wide comet were coming at us with less than two years of advance warning. In that scenario, the only realistic option would be hydrogen bombs, and lots of them. Vanderbilt estimates it would take about 250 megatons' worth of energy to divert an object like Comet Siding Spring. At 1 to 5 megatons per bomb, that would mean 50 to 250 bombs from the nuclear powers' stockpile.

Thats one way to get rid of are Worlds Nuclear Weapons Arsenal.

I am seriously hoping it hits Mars. If it doesn't i guess were all $ucked.

If it does hit Mars,would the ensuing shockwave wipe out the Mars rovers ?

What do you mean "still" going to Mars? Whilst NASA has aspirations to send a manned mission there, this is a long term goal with no mission before 2030.

I fail to see how a possible comet impact on Mars in 2014 could possibly be an excuse of NASA to cop out of a mission which won't take place for a minimum of 16 years after the event.

That would depend on where on Mars it hit.

They are spending so much money on weapons that kill people maybe they should be investing more in weapons to stop threats to our planet.

And this is relevant to a comet hitting Mars how?
