Don't forget that a 1,300 foot asteroid, about the size of an aircraft carrier, will fly by Earth this evening even closer to us than the Moon. Don't worry, it won't hit. It'll be tricky to catch a glimpse, but you might spot it if you have a telescope with at least a 6-inch mirror, says Scott Fisher, the director of the National Science Foundation's Division of Astronomical Sciences.
Harold Camping lets out a hearty chuckle when he considers the people who believe the world will end in 2012. "That date has not one stitch of biblical authority," Camping says from the Oakland office where he runs Family Radio, an evangelical station that reaches listeners around the world. "It's like a fairy tale."
The real date for the end of times, he says, is in 2011.
What causes bad weather and natural disasters? The spin of the earth. Wind, rain, snow, hail, floods, drought, hurricanes, tornados, and lightening are all caused by temperature (and pressure) differences in the earth's atmosphere. These are caused by the earth's spin.
The earth's spin is quickening.
Uh oh. This will not stand.

Costco is selling a fascinating 1-year 1-person food supply kit, all canned and dehydrated and ready for your bunker. Includes 'Textured Vegetable Protein' fake meat and treats like 'chocolate drink mix.' For $800 you'll be ready to emerge after the black helicopters retreat and take on the new world order.

BP's Deepwater Horizon drilling operation may have triggered an irreversible, cascading geological Apocalypse that will culminate with the first mass extinction of life on Earth in many millions of years.
Back in the 90's, we dodged a bullet. Bio-engineers came up with an aggressive soil bacteria that turned plant waste into alcohol. Turns out, however, that the bacteria did its thing on living plants as well as dead, and had it gotten out of the lab, it would have killed all plant life on the planet within months.

When Apophis first popped up, initial data indicated that it would barely pass us in 2029, then whip around the sun through a gravitational keyhole, and hit us on the return pass in 2036. Then JPL and NASA hurriedly revised their conclusions to downplay the 2036 event, and have continued to do so. This has always bothered me, and I maintain that 2036 is still go-time.
Looks like someone else agrees - the Russians are gearing up to try and deflect Apophis before it can hurt us.
* name the reference for a gold star!

I've mentioned Apophis numerous times, the asteroid that will likely pass us close in 2029, whip around the sun, and then come straight at us in 2036. Upon releasing their initial findings to an uproar, NASA quickly upped their odds to 1 in 45,000 that we'd actually get hit.
A 13-year-old whiz kid from Germany has calculated the actual odds as closer to 1 in 450, which NASA has confirmed. Told ya.

How is This Story supposed to be news? Did we not, some 15-20 years ago, just begin to come out from under the constant threat of Global Thermonuclear War? Were not the B-52s, loaded with bombs, constantly on patrol or at least ready for rabid scramble deployment?
