‘Major Incident’: Two in Critical Condition After ‘Unknown Substance’ Close to Salisbury Skripal Attack
An article in Breitbart news shows that even the Russians have a problem with terrorism. The Terrorists know no bounds.
An article in Breitbart news shows that there is no end in sight for the Syrian conflict. The new president of the United States is waiting for a plan to end terrorism that will most likely involve Syria. Things will remain tense until then.
An article in Breitbart news The three world super powers have been flexing their muscles over the last year. China has never been so active as it has in the last year. Building island military bases in the pacific, increasing the size of its Navy, and now moving weapons to the Russian Border. Does China fear Russia, or does China fear some type of terrorist invasion. Only time will tell if this turns into war.
The Russian meteorite that exploded over Chelyabinsk was 1000 times bigger than they originally said it was. NASA stated that they do not currently have the technology available to track objects of that size or predict when one might be coming towards our planet. Some estimates indicate that there could be as many as 100,000 of these small sized asteroids that could potentially hit the earth someday. Obviously this does not happen very often since the last one in recorded history was in the early 1900s.
The much larger asteroid that passed by the planet on February 15 2013 was discovered by amateur astronomers and reported to NASA. I am not sure exactly how they found it, but I suspected was the good old fashioned way with optical telescopes. The real question is what would we have done if a larger asteroid had been on a collision course with earth. As far as I know, there is still no technology currently available to deflect an asteroid from hitting the earth. So for Russia has been hit twice by such an occurrence in the last 100 years.
If the Russian meteorite that exploded over Chelyabinsk had a shock wave that was strong enough to blow out windows all over that city, I wonder what effect it had on the people’s hearing. None of the news articles seem to indicate how loud the noise was when it exploded. Any noise 150 decibels or louder has the potential to permanently deafen and someone. If you see a meteor flying through the atmosphere, a good course of action might be to anticipate the shockwave and protect your ears by covering them. It might be best not to stare in the direction of the potential explosion either because the flash of light could potentially damaging the retinas in your eyes.
Shortly after seeing news reports about the Russian meteor exploding over Chelyabinsk and seeing the videos of the contrail I told some of my friends that I bet the Russian people probably thought that they were being attacked by some type of weapon. A while later, there were news reports of some of the Russian officials stating that it was really a weapon controlled by the United States. It all sounds so farfetched that they would think it was some type of weapon, but later in the day there were reports of Russian bombers with nuclear tipped missiles circling Guam in the South Pacific. Of course we intercepted them with fighters to get them back into their own airspace.
How easy would it be for the Cold War to start all over again because of a natural phenomenon like a meteor? There obviously are those who would like for that to happen. What makes it more interesting is the fact that Cuba had a similar incident with a meteor the same week but on a smaller scale. Cuba’s a smaller communist country and had a smaller meteor.
Could it really be possible to use a meteor as a weapon? All the scenarios that have been hypothesized to change the course and orbit of an asteroid in danger of striking the planet earth could just as easily be used to change the path of an asteroid to intentionally strike the earth. The amount of planning and mathematics as well as the technology needed to do such a thing makes it so extremely unlikely to be done. Nevertheless, it will probably become the newest conspiracy theory circulating the Internet.
