Huge Asteroid to Hit Antarctica in 2012

September 20, 2012

University of British Columbia Professor published an on-line article that projected an 800m asteroid would hit Antarctica in the fall of 2012.

His article was on the www.phas.ubc.ca website for 2 days before it abruptly disappeared. The initial data was gathered by The Balloon-borne Large-Aperture Sub millimeter Telescope (BLAST) at McMurdo Station, Antarctica.

The theorized asteroid was then tracked by Canada-France-Hawaii Telescope on Mauna Kea, which (with the Adaptive Optics Bonnette) supplies probably the sharpest images currently obtainable from the ground.

If it were true


Can't hide something like that, amateur astronomers all over the southern side of the planet (literally half the planet) would notice it and be talking about it everywhere.

I agree with that. If it were true then at least some amateur astronomers on the southern hemisphere would have noticed it.

Not true, this was a hoax back in 2010 and there is no way to predict an asteroid hit with accuracy two years away. Nothing to worry about here.

What were you saying about "No way to predict..."

Yep, This has certainly become "The Daily Troll".

You are joking right?

Scientists at NASA warned (not predict because math is a sure thing) that an asteroid would nearly miss the Earth and pass between Earth and the Moon years before it happened, and to the exact date. It's called trigonometry, or to be exact triangulation. As for the info in the post, I agree it is a HOAX, but we will all find out in a few months won't we.lol=P
