GLOBAL KILLER ASTEROID ALERT (in other words… GO TO CONFESSION!) | Fr. Z’s Blog.

Fr. Zuhlsdorf has a way of shaking us and waking us! This story he posted may worry some, but as St. Padre Pio said: “Pray, hope, and don’t worry!” I’m not a saint, but I do try to go to monthly confession. How about you? Are you ready for the Killer Astroid?

Sure, the world is going to hell in a handbasket.  Not to worry.  We are all going to be wiped out pretty soon, anyway.

From The Independent:

Huge asteroid that ‘could end human life’ defying gravity as it moves towards Earth, scientists say

Scientists have moved closer to being able to stop a huge asteroid colliding with the Earth and potentially wiping out human life.

Researchers at the University of Tennessee have discovered that blowing the space rock up could make the collision worse by causing several devastating impacts.

Instead, small changes could be made to its surface to disrupt the forces keeping it together and cause it to break up in outer space.

They were studying asteroid 1950 DA, which has a one in 300 chance of hitting the planet on 16 March, 2880.

Although the odds seem small, it is the most likely asteroid to collide with Earth and the odds are higher than being shot dead in the US.

The asteroid has a diameter of one kilometer and is travelling at nine miles a second relative to the Earth, which it would hit at 38,000 miles per hour.

The impact would have a force of around 44,800 megatons of TNT and cause a huge explosion, tsunamis and change the climate of the globe, devastating human life.

But with 35 generations to go until its possible arrival, scientists are confident that the disaster can be averted.

So, everyone, GO TO CONFESSION!
