Mystery Impact on Jupiter – Update

by on Jul.28, 2009, under aliens

Fox News is using the recent “impact” event on Jupiter to “scare” people into believing that it could happen here on Earth.  See this article.  But, as we discussed when the “impact” was announced, there cannot be a repeat of the Jupiter event as it was not an impact event.  Rather, it was an alien gas mining operation that suffered a catastrophic failure resulting in an explosion and apparent Earth-sized crater.

Certainly, Near-Earth Objects (NEOs) of a certain size a something to be concerned about.  Earth has been hit by many large asteroids and comets throughout its existence.  The planet will, undoubtedly, be hit many, many more times.  Unless there is a true surprise lurking somewhere in the Solar System, Earth will probably not be hit by an asteroid of substantial size or a comet any time in the near future.
