Title: Near Miss Asteroid 2011 MD
Post by: Carolyn Simpson on June 27, 2011, 07:51:06 PM
Another near miss asteroid has got the world wondering just why no one told us about it?  They new about it 5 days in advance.   2011 MD was detected on June 22nd by LNEAR, MIT's Lincoln's Near Earth Asteroid Research Center and missed the Earth by 7,500 miles.  Closer than the moon and close enough to wipe out some satellites.  It's size approx between 8 to 18 meters, about the size of a small house.  It's close in size (13meters) to the object that hit Tunguska: 131KT (Kilo Tons of TNT).  Hiroshima and Nagasaki Atomic Bombs: 20KT.  It's next approach is 2022, but even if our orbits intersect, it's likely to explode in our upper atmosphere they say.  What if it didn't and still they could have at least told us if they knew it wasn't going to hit!!   I didn't hear about it until it was over!  What about the next asteroid they don't tell us about?  Here's a good video...It shows how it enters the GPS satellite constellation, from the asteroid's point of view, and the South Pole view.  Go to youtube/ASTEROID 2011 MD; 4th one down or copy/paste:  http://youtu.be/czr0Kkpyrec (http://youtu.be/czr0Kkpyrec)
