The House to discuss the threat of asteroids.

Awesome.

House committee to hold hearing on asteroid threat
By Jonathan Easley
02/15/13 12:07 PM ET

The House Science, Space and Technology Committee will hold a hearing on how to “better identify and address asteroids that pose a potential threat to Earth,” Chairman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) said in a statement on Friday.

The announcement comes after a meteorite exploded in a massive blast above Siberia that damaged buildings, houses and cars and injured about 1,000 people on Friday.

"The light was so intense that it completely illuminated the courtyard of our apartment block," said Sergei Zakharov, head of the Russian Geographical Society in Chelyabinsk, according to The Wall Street Journal. "The sound, the shock wave came around six minutes later. No one could understand what had happened. I'd compare it to the explosion of a large flare bomb."

The blast was unrelated to another rare meteorological event on Friday — a 150-foot-long asteroid passed within 17,000 miles of Earth. It’s the closest encounter of its kind on record, passing within the orbit of many man-made satellites.

“Today’s events are a stark reminder of the need to invest in space science,” Smith said. “Asteroid 2012 DA14 passed just 17,000 miles from Earth, less than the distance of a round trip from New York to Sydney. And this morning, a much smaller meteorite hit near the Russian city of Chelyabinsk, damaging buildings and injuring hundreds."

"Developing technology and research that enable us to track objects like Asteroid 2012 DA14 is critical to our future," Smith said. "We should continue to invest in systems that identify threatening asteroids and develop contingencies, if needed, to change the course of an asteroid headed toward Earth.”

I don't think it is THAT ridiculous to discuss this in Congress. What is ridiculous is having an R-controlled science committee discuss anything related to science. I think we all know the likely determination of the committee--start banning gay marriage and God will stop threatening us with meteors.

IF they knew they wouldn't tell the general public. It would just be mass hysteria. They just want to know when to go to their underground bunkers. Without their leadership after the disaster what would the earth do?...........................

We get that you have an irrational hatred for anyone with (R) after their name. Seriously. I don't think I've EVER seen you post anything at all positive about a group of people that differ from you only in philosophy. You come off as a not very convincing shill. And what the **** does gay marriage have to do with a scientific topic?

So what if I never post anything positive about Rs? I'm not Fox News.
And its not hate--I just think a lot of them are ****ing stupid.

What does gay marriage have to do with a scientific topic (or a lot of other things)? Nothing. That's the point. Rs as a whole don't believe in some of the very basic tenets of science, such as evolution. They have no business being on a science committee.

Whatever. I mean it's no skin off MY ass. It just offends me (and I would bet a LOT of other people) that since I'm a Republican, I must be scientifically illiterate. From that angle, **** you and your condescension. I have a pretty high IQ. I'm no dummy. AND I'm a republican. Most of the people I surround myself are similar. You just seem to be painting with TOO broad a brush and making an ass of yourself. Peace.

Your party has some issues with science. Yeah, I'm generalizing, but when polls Rs beliefs on science and all your presidential candidates (except one) reject basic facets of science, you might get lumped in.

And YOUR party has many issues as well. Whatever. I think we're screwed no matter who is in charge that day. Personally, the flaws in D logic are obvious and apparent to me. And I didn't NEED Rush or Fox to point it out. You don't see ME out playing "gotcha" politics, though. It offends me when others do.

How can a person who supports a party that can't do simple math talk about science???
