DA14 closer than we could have imagined
In this oblique view, the path of near-Earth asteroid 2012 DA14 is seen passing close to Earth on Feb. 15, 2013. (Which we know now was a lie.) Real trajectory shown in red.
As we all know by now, the small fragment – piece that hit Russia today, only was a teaser of what to come. Even thou this was only fragment from DA14 these small Meteorite explosions in the skies of Russia’s Urals region it has still sparked panic in three major cities. Witnesses said that houses shuddered, windows were blown out and cellphones stopped working. Could you image a hit from a huge Asteroid? This small Asteroid weighed only 10 tons. And I`m absolutely sure that NASA and ESA knew that debris from DA14 WOULD hit earth. But they never told us. So even if a really BIG Asteroid was on it`s way straight towards Earth, we would never be told. This was proven today. Also proven today was that they lied about how close DA14 would pass.
According to former Apollo astronaut Rusty Schweikart. Who’s one of the heads of the B612 Foundation, a nonprofit group trying to raise private funds to launch an asteroid-watching telescope into space. They would call it Sentinel, and it would look for objects smaller than 2012 DA14. The bigger ones are already being found and tracked — but there are still smaller ones that could do a lot of damage, say Schweikart and his colleagues.
“The truth of the matter is that of all the Asteroids that are out there, could come near the Earth and do harm as they hit Earth, and we only know one percent of them now! 99 percent of them, we don’t even know where they are,” Schweikart said.
From NASA: First calculations showed that the space rock would come within 1.5 million miles (2.5 million km) this Feb. 15, or about six times the distance from Earth to the moon.
Now we know that the debris from DA14 Asteroid came within only a couple of thousands of miles of Earth.
