Asteroid Apocalypse plan revealed in shock White House announcement

Get ready people, the White house is OFFICIALLY worried about Asteroids and Comets smashing into Earth, making a surprising ‘apocalypse plan announcement’. US Government officials are working on perfecting an emergency plan designed to avert the risk of an asteroid/comet apocalypse. This announcement comes shortly after NASA spotted a comet that will fly near Earth in February. 

Earth is frequently impacted by smaller asteroids that are so tiny that they tend to burn up while entering Earth’s atmosphere, passing completely unnoticed. However, there have been devastating events like the impacts at Chelyabinsk, Russia in 2013 and Tunguska in Russia in 1908, which destroyed around 2000 square kilometers of land.

The paper was written by the Inter-agency Working Group for Detecting and Mitigating the Impact of Earth-Bound Near-Earth Objects, aka DAMIEN.

Experts fear there may be “little warning.”

Recently the White House has revealed its National Near-Earth Object Preparedness Strategy which aims to provide a solution to asteroids and comets that could impact our planet in the future.

The idea is to sharpen our planets alert systems and invest in futuristic space probes that could help us prevent an asteroid collision.

The first and most important step is to improve our detection methods, that way scientists can alert defense experts about potentially apocalyptic NEO’s or Near Earth Objects.

Heres the data:

Furthermore, experts say we need to work on creating artificially intelligent space probes and pack them with high-tech sensors and lasers.

To prevent a space rock smashing into Earth, experts plan to launch powerful rockets into the sky, in order to intercept asteroids and calculate their approximate size and weight, two of the most crucial details about potential asteroids in a collision course with Earth.

After the space equipment gathers the data, defense experts can draw up a plan of action.

This announcement comes shortly after NASA spotted a comet that will fly near Earth in February reports The Sun.

“Disruption of the NEO may be required if there is little warning time or if the object is very large. Technologies to deflect the NEO away from Earth can be used, but to either disrupt or deflect a very large object, research, and development of high-energy solutions is required.” Wrote experts in the paper.

After spotting an asteroid with a potential collision course with Earth, the next step is to alert the masses. The paper suggests that the US should react similarly to a hurricane warning and declare a national emergency across every state.

But what if you aren’t in the US? Will detection plans work? Even though the program will allow experts to detect incoming space rocks around the globe, it is still not clear if the US will invest and prepare advanced technology to protect the rest of the planets. Contradictory huh?

The strategy document lists seven goals:

  1. Improve the country’s NEO tracking and classifying abilities
  2. Figure out how to move or blow up threatening NEOs
  3. Make our models and predictions better
  4. Come up with emergency procedures in case a NEO can’t be deflected
  5. Create warning systems and recovery strategies
  6. Include other countries in our planning
  7. Put together protocols and thresholds to use for quick decision-making

    The notion of only detecting asteroids that will impact the U.S. is ridiculous. To be of any benefit, the asteroid would have to be detected long before it would be possible to predict where it would impact. Get serious!

      Not impossible to predict where it would impact. Its not like you when you randomly flick your boogers around the inside of the house and car. Its called science and math.

        We know the speed of the earth’s rotation. We know where the earth is headed and when it will get there. When we know of incoming object we can triangulate the object with various reference points. Watch how long it takes to move from one point to another… BINGO… now if they choose to tell us is another thing. I doubt they will and simply say we never saw it coming. ya right… the amount of satellites that are up there that NASA has alone is astonishing, never mind the other countries. They are looking for something and have found it years and years ago, it is getting here now. Just look at our weather. They are now shutting down access to various images that are going to give it all away and cause panic, abandonment and terrible fear.

          Sorry myouther, adolescent frustration set in, no excuse for me. Peeps its either in the solar system or arriving. Look at what is happening world wide, it is not because of man or cow farts. It has a huge affect already on all the planets and our sun as well, HUGE. Get ready best you can. Food, water… Stay out of Sun when possible.

      I understand that science would be able to predict where an asteroid would strike–once they have located it and studied its course, mass, etc…. What I take issue with was the paragraph:

      “But what if you aren’t in the US? Will detection plans work? Even though the program will allow experts to detect incoming space rocks around the globe, it is still not clear if the US will invest and prepare advanced technology to protect the rest of the planets. Contradictory huh?”

      It seems to suggest that we (or anybody) could set up a system to find only asteroids that are destined to hit the U.S.. That is NOT how any asteroid seeking system would/could work. Any such system would first identify an asteroid, determine that it is on a collision course with earth, then as it comes closer, refine calculations of where it will most likely impact.

    Wow…who knows…could be true

    A “surprise” announcement from the White House is highly unlikely at this time. Obama is too busy scorching the Earth as he leaves office, trying to make a peaceful transition to the incoming president anything but.
    His attention is far from worrying about near earth objects.

  • george

    Earth is such a huge planet and it will be silly to think that an asteroid of a few kms wide can ever devastate it…may be some regional damage and that had been happening here and there ……nothing serious warranting something to be addressed by the white house and pentagon……
