1. Start preaching about the end of the world and collect as much money as possible (just give me your money, you're not going to need it after the end of the world).

2. Go to Russia and use the money to buy a round trip ticket to space

3. Get enough food supply, seeds for future plants. Don't forget to get a really hot chick for the sake of human race tongue.gif

4. Launch and wait in space while the earth is destroyed.

5. Return to earth after everything looks safe. Change my name to Adam. thumbsup.gif

Throwing nukes at it would do nothing, were you not paying attention to the dude in armageddon? "you put a fire cracker on your hand, it explodes, but does nothing but scroch the surface, but however put a firecracker in your hand and close it, and it explodes...." i think you get the point there. Heres two possibilitys:

1. Do like in armageddon and deep impact, drill into the asteroid, and detonate nukes from the inside. (however we have never tested nuclear devices in the void of space, so its effects are unknown.)

2. Contruct a large space "ark", a super huge self contained spaceship, with everything from earth, then wander the galaxy looking for a new planet.

another way to put that firecracker theory.

you put a fire cracker on your hand, it explodes. But what does your hand do? It moves away as a reflex. so throwing a nuke at it might push it away or deflect it...

I'm not sure asteriods are capable of moving themselves away, via reflex. Reflex is a living trait....asteroids aren't alive. Like i said in my previous post, we have never studied the effects of a nuclear blast in a vacuum. So we have no way of knowing whether or not nuclear missiles would be effective.

Actually Blood-Angle the last few offical Nuke test that the U.S. conducted were in space. Although they were mainly for seeing the effect that a Nuke blast would have on hardware systems in space. Now as for the effects that the blast would haave on an asteroid; they have attempted to use computer programs to get an idea of what would happen. Not that I would want to stake my life on a high-priced computer game!

In physics it is called Newton's third law of motion. The nuclear blast will alter the course of the asteroid.

There is probably only one solution.

We would have to accurately calculate the impact site......and then evacuate.

What would I do..?
First of all I would be really worried. (Nooo..I'd be happy..sleep.gif)
Then, I would decide to be a hippi for the rest of my days.
I think that asteroid could change peoples views on how they live..
Anyway, I'd be a hippi, and I would be in harmony with nature..and I'd say "radical" and "dude" alot.
That's what I would do if it were going to be the end of the world. grin2.gif
RADICAL, DUUUDE!
..hippis are cool.

I'd be sad for a lot of reasons; one of them is that i would never see my kids grow...

I agree with Athlon64.  Please explain Bangali, you can't just post something like that, and not provide evidence.
