LHC and Asteroids

As always — Do your research

SHOCK CLAIM: Large Hadron Collider magnetic field could pull asteroids towards Earth

The CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) could be responsible for drawing an asteroid that could destroy the planet towards earth, according to a wild conspiracy theory.

The LHC could generate a magnetic field that could somehow pull an iron-laden space rock off course towards Earth with catastrophic consequences, according to the crack pot theory which is doing the rounds online.

Another theory dreamed up by conspiracists is the LHC could even open up a portal from another dimension through which an unexpected comet or asteroid could suddenly appear before hitting Earth out of the blue.

Some have even bizarrely claimed the LHC could summon the Anti-Christ to earth to cause an apocalypse.

Scientists have readily dismissed these suggestions as ridiculous, but the LHC has long caused fear among certain quarters following claims it could potentially create a black hole which swallows up the planet.

The collider is within miles of tunnels, 75 metres under the French-Swiss border near Geneva, Switzerland, where scientists are smashing atoms to try to discover a parallel universe.

It is accepted by scientists that the LHC could cause a small black hole, but there has been no suggestion it could actually devour the earth or affect the movement of asteroids in space.

Various YouTube channels predict the Large Hadron Collider is about to ‘unleash hellfire destruction’ on the world, possibly while magnetically summoning a whacking great asteroid to destroy America’s east coast


This has not deterred Nostradamus style predictors.

One blogger suggested the LHC was a much more sinister machine, stating: “The CERN logo is 666 – the sign of the beast – in a circle.

“The CERN collider looks like the all-seeing eye or stargaze we see so much of.”

In a video, YouTube channel Paranormal Crucibale said: “We hear a lot of talk about CERN – portals and asteroids lately. CERN is creating a portal in space in anticipation for this event they are creating rumours of an asteroid strike when really they are not sure of the implications when cern removes the veil bet above and bel what might come out of that portal.”

There has been so much speculation over CERN drawing an asteroid towards Earth, Yahoo.com cited it as one of its top 11 craziest conspiracy theories.

The article said: “It seems that Christian conspiracy theorists haven’t forgiven the machine for finding the ‘God particle’ and now predict it’s going to bring about Doomsday.

COMMENT — Pretty far out!

9/07 Asteroid Flyby

WEEKEND ASTEROID FLYBY: This Sunday, a house-sized asteroid named “2014 RC” will fly through the Earth-Moon system almost inside the orbit of geosynchronous satellites. At closest approach, Sept. 7th at 18:18 UTC, the 20-meter-wide space rock will pass just 40,000 km over New Zealand. This diagram from NASA shows the geometry of the encounter:

There is no danger of a collision with Earth.

Asteroid 2014 RC was discovered on the night of August 31 by the Catalina Sky Survey near Tucson, Arizona, and independently detected the next night by the Pan-STARRS 1 telescope, located on the summit of Haleakalā on Maui, Hawaii.  Follow-up observations quickly confirmed the orbit of 2014 RC: it comes from just beyond the orbit of Mars.

The close appproach of this space rock offers researchers an opportunity for point-blank studies of a near-Earth asteroid. Even amateur astronomers will be able to track it. Around the time of closest approach, it will brighten to magnitude +11.5 as it zips through the constellation Pisces. This means it will be invisible to the naked eye but a relatively easy target for backyard telescopes equipped with CCD cameras


Asteroid Apophis Approaching Earth

Aliens, Russia, NASA and Pat Robertson Warns Us That Earth Will Be Hit By Extinction Event Asteroid In Future. UFO Sighting News. @secgen

Recently in the news, Pat Robertson has predicted that the Earth will be hit by a massive asteroid. People laugh at him because he is a religious man, but he is not far from the truth about what is really coming. NASA has been announcing this week that its just a matter of dumb luck that Earth hasn’t been hit by a big one yet. 
Also Russian scientists have warned that asteroid Apophis (350 meters) in 2029 has a high probability of hitting the earth with a 1 in 30 chance. If it doesn’t hit us, it still has a chance to hit us in 2036.
In the 1970s a man was abducted by aliens and brought into a ship. This person was living in Puerto Rico at the time and said he saw other people who where taken from Earth and stood in the room to watch a presentation that the aliens wanted them to see. These people abducted by aliens were shown holographic like projections. This hologram showed a meteor or rock falling to Earth in the near future (1:15 min into video). This meteor is suppose to fall in the Puerto Rico -Caribbean Island area. 
It’s just a matter of time before an asteroid of 1+km size hits Earth…it has been a while, so we are due for an impact. I’m not trying to scare people, I’m just stating the facts. Why would aliens warn many people about a coming catastrophe with an asteroid? Because they may be trying to change the future by warning us and preparing us to change the course of future events.

Celestial Highpoints of 2014

Most Interesting Celestial Events of 2014

astronomical events 2014What astronomical phenomena will be observable to people in different parts of the Earth this year?

2014 will be saturated with celestial events in respect of comets and asteroids, but less intense and interesting in respect of eclipses.

First on the list is a lunar eclipse which will occur on April 15 and will last 1 hour 19 minutes. Only the inhabitants of North and South America will be able to see the complete eclipse.

In 2 weeks after that, on April 29, a partial solar eclipse will take place when the Moon will cover the sun only partially. The eclipse will reach its maximum phase in Antarctica and will be observable to the inhabitants of Australia and Tasmania. The eclipse will last only 6 minutes.

The next eclipse will be a full moon, which will take place on October 8. This time, the eclipse will be seen to the inhabitants of North America, the eastern part of Russia, Australia, New Zealand and some other Pacific islands. This eclipse is interesting because during the total phase the Moon will cover Uranus.

Last eclipse of the list is a partial solar eclipse, which will happen on October 23 and will be visible in North America and eastern Russia.

The brightest asteroid of this year will be Vesta, one of the largest asteroids in the main asteroid belt. Its brightness is expected to peak in April when it will be visible with the naked eye. The second brightest asteroid will be Pallas, which is larger than Vesta and ranks first in size among all the asteroids in the main asteroid belt. Pallas will be seen later this month. Among the other most interesting asteroids, Hebe and Juno are worth noting.

Some sources mistakenly attributed Ceres to the asteroids and included it in the list above. However, Ceres had been considered an asteroid till August 24, 2006, when it was classified as a dwarf planet.

The bigger an asteroid is, the more sunlight it reflects. However, the brightness of an asteroid is heavily dependent on the albedo (reflectivity characteristics of its surface), which in turn is determined by the composition of its constituent species. For example, the asteroid Vesta reflects 4 times more light than the dwarf planet Ceres because of the high albedo of the surface and is the most visible asteroid in the sky, which often can be seen even with the naked eye.

The brightest comets will be 154P (P/Brewington), C/2011 W3 (Lovejoy), C/2012 X1 (LINEAR), C/2012 K1 (PanSTARRS) and C/2013 A1 (McNaught). The list may vary depending on the expected increase in brightness and the discovery of new comets.

Joining Efforts to Find Potentially Threatening Asteroids

Amateur Skywatchers Help Space Hazards Team

ScienceDaily (Oct. 13, 2011) — For the first time, observations coordinated by the European Space Agency’s space hazards team have found an asteroid that comes close enough to Earth to pose an impact threat. The space rock was found by amateur astronomers, highlighting the value of ‘crowd-sourcing’ to science and planetary defence.

he discovery of asteroid 2011 SF108 was made by the volunteer Teide Observatory Tenerife Asteroid Survey (TOTAS) team during an observation slot sponsored by ESA’s Space Situational Awareness (SSA) programme in September.

The four-night survey used the 1m-aperture telescope at ESA’s Optical Ground Station at Teide on Tenerife in the Canary Islands.

This is not the first asteroid found under SSA sponsorship, but it is the first that qualifies as a ‘near Earth object’ — an object that passes close enough to Earth during its orbit around the Sun that it could pose an impact threat.

Images require human evaluation

During TOTAS observations, the telescope runs automated asteroid surveys for several hours using software developed by amateur astronomer and computer scientist Matthias Busch from the Starkenburg Amateur Observatory in Heppenheim, Germany.

However, potential sightings must still be evaluated by humans.

The team comprises 20 volunteers, most of whom took part in the manual evaluation of images captured during the session on 28/29 September.

Safe distance: 30 million km

“Images are distributed to the entire team for review, and any one of them could be the discoverer of a new asteroid,” says Detlef Koschny, Head of NEO activity for SSA. “This time, the luck of the draw fell to Rainer Kracht.”

“As volunteer work, it is very rewarding. When you do spot something, you contribute to Europe’s efforts in defending against asteroid hazards.”

The orbit of asteroid 2011 SF108 brings it no closer than about 30 million km to Earth — a safe distance.
