Planetary Defense Conference 2015 - Asteroid Impact Scenario

Recommended Posts

 CGK    2,639

I'm sure by now many of your have heard about the Asteroid that is supposed to impact the earth in September of 2015. Lots of folks on Youtube claim its going to be an ELE event. I guess time will tell.

In the mean time, what I find interesting is at the Planetary Defense Conference that was held in April in Italy, they played Asteroid Impact games.  http://iaaweb.org/content/view/599/785/

Here is what they came up with...

PDC2015: Impact scenario

Day 1: An asteroid threat detected

On the first day of the conference the organizing committee presented the following scenario: A Near-Earth Asteroid is predicted to pass very close to the Earth on the 3rd of September 2022. The asteroid (designated 2015 PDC) has a chance of 1 in 110 of hitting the Earth. If the Earth would be hit by the asteroid it would strike somewhere on the corridor shown in the picture: The Middle-East, across South-Asia and the Pacific would all be of risk for the impact.

To discuss this scenario the experts were split in four groups. The first group represents the world leaders of countries that are in the path of the asteroid and are thus directly under risk of an impact. The second group represents all other leaders whose countries are not under direct threat from an impact. The third group are people who are living in the countries at risks and whose homes are under risk of being hit. Finally, the fourth group represents the media and needs to estimate how the media would react on this scenario.


Day 2: April 2016, 43% chance of impact

Days 3 and 4: Certain impact, and kinetic impactors on their way


Day 5: Kinetic impactors not fully effective!

Lessons learned

Overall the scenario was very useful for the scientists and engineers, mostly because it teaches them what kind of social and civil aspects of a possible meteor strike are of importance: The impact of a NEO would certainly not be of scientific/engineering alone, it would be far more important politically and socially. Through the practice of these scenarios the experts also learn to think from the positions of political leaders, the media, and the public.

Don't y'all feel better knowing that they are practicing for this type of event? LOL

 Intellhub ties the Asteroid event into the Jade Helm exercise. Hummmmmmmm

Rumor has it massive ELE coming in Sept. — asteroid strike

The conspiracy deepens after Youtuber discovers movie Deep Impact (1998) may hold secrets to potential upcoming ELE

After hearing about the rumors on the Internet of a possible impending asteroid strike allegedly set to take place sometime on or around Sept. 23, 2015, Youtuber Montagraph made a few shocking discoveries which had to do with the 1998 film Deep Impact.

Upon closer review of the film, which by the way depicted the President of the United States (POTUS) as a black man, Montagraph uncovered a new can of worms for conspiracy theorists to chew on to say the least.


JADE HELM ends Sept. 15

To boot the highly suspicious military exercise dubbed JADE HELM 15, starting in June, ends Sept. 15, making some wonder if the rumors have any validity as the exercise would allow foreign and domestic military units to preposition themselves throughout large swaths of the U.S. for a potential impending disaster in which COG (Continuity of Government) would then be activated.
