    I don't think its going to hit us. I believe that if it was negatively charged it would be giving off a glow like comets do. I don't believe there is any evidence to support that the asteroid is negatively charged so I am not going to worry about it. I wish there was somewhere you could go to get facts on this type of stuff rather than having to read through a huge thread on a message board where you have no idea if the information you are reading is fact or opinion.

    Here is something debunking it

    I've heard the media mention a potentially catastrophic asteroid on a collision course with earth once an awhile. Just October last year there were 882 potentially hazardous asteroids found. I don't think it's anything to get excited about.

    I think this is a hoax too. If this would have been real, you would have heard it in one way or another.

    Scary cuz jsut last night i bought Advanced Wars: Days of Ruin, and in it, the story is Meteors hit the earth, and most of the whole world population is gone. A giant layer of dust covers the Earth, and no food can be made.

    And i didn't even kno wabout this until today. Awkward o_O

    Maybe, maybe not. What would happen if the general public heard this? Chaos?

    Well, if you view things from that perspective...do you really think this would just so happen to be on the internet if someone wanted it to be a secret?

    Indeed.
    Though, this kind of a "word" would make every tabloid write about it.
    You either have a secret nobody heard about, something the whole world is familiar with or a hoax.

    If it does hit, I hope it hits in an ocean.

    It is not going to hit. It is a hoax. The disturbing thing I read though is that they were not going to tell us if they discovered something that would kill us and they could not stop it because the panic would not be worth it. Worth what? Then I started thinking who makes that decision?

    Um.. even NASA is worried about it. Look at the orbiting pattern. I really don't think NASA would set up a hoax.

    Don't believe me?

    Read this.

    You do know there are many scientist working on Anti-Asteroid equipment. Theres one that uses a solar beam to push stuff away to Putting a bomb inside the asteroid. There are many ideas to split the asteroid into tiny bits to make it go around the earth. To completely destroying it.
    It goes in levels.

    If there is no other choice and everything else has failed. The world leaders will fire at least 15,000 ballistic missiles into space.

    The defense must be done by 2012, which i believe should be another discussion/debate.

    It won't hit us. The creator of that video is almost laughably misinformed.

    Did you guys even watch the video? :p
    He didn't say it was going to hit us, he said it was going to release static discharge.
