Aircraft Carrier-Sized Asteroid to Swing by Earth Next Week

Near Miss Asteroid

Astronomers say an asteroid larger than an aircraft carrier will swing by the Earth on Nov. 8 at a distance that’s closer to us than the Moon. The near-miss asteroid, 2005 YU55, is reportedly the largest object on record to pass this close to us with our foreknowledge.

Asteroid 2005 YU55, which is a quarter of a mile in diameter, will reach a distance of just under 200,000 miles away from Earth early next week—inside the orbit of the moon. The closest the rock will get is 198,000 miles from the surface of the planet, according to Sky and Telescope, a near miss that is expected to occur at 6:28 p.m. ET next Tuesday.

There’s no danger that the asteroid will strike Earth, but Sky and Telescope reports that if it did, it would “deliver a kinetic-energy punch equivalent to several thousand megatons of TNT … the kind of potential threat that outer-space sentries lose sleep over.”

Asteroid 2005 YU55 was discovered, you guessed it, back in 2005 by Robert McMillan at Steward Observatory’s Spacewatch Telescope in Arizona. The likely carbon-rich asteroid has a very round shape as documented in grainy images, and it spins around in a “relatively long” rotation period of 18 to 20 hours, according to the astronomy site.

And this particular asteroid has crossed our path before. The last time 2005 YU55 swung by was in April 2010, but it actually came closer to Earth in 1976 than it will next week, though at the time, nobody observed that passing.

9/11: Explosive Evidence -- Experts Speak Out
by Architects & Engineers for 911 Truth

The 43 technical experts interviewed in Experts Speak Out lay out the case for controlled demolition from their individual areas of expertise in hi-rise architecture, structural engineering, metallurgy, chemistry, physics, and controlled demolition. The seeming implausibility of the implications of the three World Trade Center skyscrapers being demolished with explosives is also handled quite skillfully in the film, as eight experts in psychology discuss the difficulties many people have in confronting the myth-shattering reality. This is a newly released DVD.

Reviews: Excellent Item for Travel, Backpacking, Camping, Etc.

This radio is a great little investment. It does exactly everything it states it should. On a 60 second crank I got hours of play. I ran the radio completely dead by leaving the light on and the radio playing at half column. I let the radio play like this with the light on for at least an hour before it went dead. I then put it out in the sun and let it charge with the solar charger for about four hours and then turned the radio on and let it play for only about an hour and then just didn't want to complete the experiment. I am very pleased with this radio. 60 seconds of cranking for hours of play is very reasonable. Letting it charge out in the sun and getting hours of play is very reasonable. I have other brands like this in the past that you would crank for 5 to 10 and get maybe 10 minutes of play.

The USB charge does work, but know that it will not charge an iPhone 3Gs. This is more a problem/restriction of the iPhone 3Gs (a widely discussed complaint across the Internet for many-many generic charging devices) and is not because of the radio. Charging my old Samsung phone was not a problem.

On the 20-year anniversary of his groundbreaking masterpiece "Roger & Me," Michael Moore's "Capitalism: A Love Story" comes home to the issue he's been examining throughout his career: the disastrous impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans. But this time the culprit is much bigger than General Motors, and the crime scene is far wider than Flint, Michigan.
