AN ASTEROID effect declared just 24 hours before cataclysm cannot be ceased, and the only thing left to do is to “hand out a lot of Bibles,” an asteroid expert revealed.
Killer asteroids lurking our vision afar in the invalid of space are an ever-present warning threat to all life on Earth. When a six-mile-wide (10km) rock bang the planet 66 million years ago, the effect triggered a global disappearance event. The asteroid successfully swabs out the dinosaurs and killed 75 percent of life and kick-started a nuclear winter. If another asteroid on this plate is found barreling concerning our planet, odds are humanity will not erect a possibility of survival.
Because of this risk, space expert Lembit Öpik trusts it is censorious to extract incoming effects as far ahead into the future as possible.
Mr. Öpik is the Chairman of Parliament for the micronation Asgardia and an erstwhile British Member of Parliament.
Mr. Öpik’s political career is referred for his campaigns to elevate awareness of the risks posed by spaceborne warnings.
The expert few time back argued there is a 100% conviction an asteroid will strike Earth in the sudden future.
“We need maybe half-a-dozen telescopes on permanent watch and the willingness to get together and have a deflection system, which can be implemented quickly”There is no shortage of people, even if there are threats, who want to go into space, who are willing to take the risk.” When you think about going into space, all of these have to be taken into consideration.
“That’s why Asgardia has a science congress in October, from the 13th to 16th in Darmstadt in Germany.
“We’re beginning to talk about the biology of living in space and related subjects, and there will be formal sessions and formal discussions too.
“You have to plan years ahead to get these things right.” – Mr. Öpik
Through his work, the Government started the Near-Earth Object Task Group, which included in 2000 more things to be done to create awareness regarding the risk of asteroid effects.
