The scale of the image is misleading, plus it doesnt't appear to take the 3rd dimension in to account.

Sometimes I think being ignorant of some things is bliss.  wacko.gif   Seeing this once again renews that fact that those who can protect us are slow in doing their job. Isn't it only recently that they land a probe on an asteroid? Has any experiments been carried out to see if it is possible to destory or push away one of these things?

its one big shooting gallery out there. if you want proof all one need do is look at are moon to see a good example of what the earths bean through. the only reason earth doesn't look like that is because we gots an atmosphere. but you realize its a small and feeble shield when you see whats out there sad.gif  and we haven't even seen half of whats out there unsure.gif

the human race is at an end and and my soul grows weary. the one thing that could revive it is almost gone and is in no condition to heal me. yet i shall not despair for the light of hope shines even in the greatest darkness. i shall continue to hope.... hope for the days of green and ever lasting love of all things. for those whom think them selfs better shall realize they are not all that is. nor are they in any way better for all life is equal.

I think they said in 3000 years it is 100% chance that the earth will be hit by an asteroid.

*snickers*  To be honest.. to think we won't be hit by an asteriod is rather ignorant.  Don't need any kind of religious prophacy to tell you that.  Heck the Earth gets hit by millions of space debris.. meteorites and such every year.  they just burn up, or atleast partly burn up, in the atmosphere.

Hopefully... by the time one comes and actually is going to hit us, we'll have some way to deflect it.

Knowing the way the governments of the world are going atm we wont have that kind of technology for a long time. Lets just hope something that will cause lots of damages misses us until we have some half decent space program going (technology wise).

Exactly.  

However, there are lots of "rocks" out there, one day a big one will hit. Remember the  Shoemaker-Levy 9 VS  Jupiter, back in 1994!!

Have a look here. Mass extinctions and impacts, and some modern impact events.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impact_event

I once saw a site where you could plug in various parameters (composition of asteroid/comet, make-up of surface impacted, angle of penetration, speed of entry, etc) and it would return with damage stats, blast radius, pressure damage, crater size; it was fantastic!
If I can find I'll post it here and you can all get even more scared!
Oh, I think it even gave a percentage chance of such an impact!
