the asteroid apophis and nibiru and planet x?

ok now, i see that the mayans and scientists say that nibiru is gonna hit earth in dec.21 2012 or an asteroid is gonna hit the ice caps but how can they be so sure that their gonna hit earth and not our moon, or some other planet, or if an asteroid does hit earth, how are they so sure that its gonna hit the ice caps?

    Scientists can’t be sure of anything, it seems, these days. First coffee is bad then it’s good, chocolate is bad then it’s good too. Remember global cooling? then global warming and now cooling again. These are predictions and theorys. They can’t tell when “the big one” earthquake will occur either. Wait and see as these things get closer in time.As far as planet “X” is concerned-forget it.

  • Geoff G:

    You are misinformed. The asteroid Apophis is not predicted to hit the Earth, and “Nibiru,” sometimes called “Planet X” doesn’t exist at all, so isn’t going to hit anything. Find me ONE scientist, any scientist who says this!

    Legitimate scientists don’t expect anything out of the ordinary to happen in the year 2012, or specifically on the date December 21, other than the solstice, which happens every year.

    None of the “predicted” happenings for 2012 hold up under close scrutiny. There is no Planet X or Nibiru. The Mayan calendar ends a cycle, but there were no predictions of the end of the world. The Sun doesn’t line up with the galactic centre; it’s 6 degrees off. No asteroids or comets are actually predicted to hit Earth.

    All of this stuff was put together by sensationalists in order to promote their books and TV shows, and shamelessly promoted by the History Channel. Don’t take any of it seriously!

    There are NO asteroids or comets currently predicted to hit the Earth at any point in the future, according to NASA-JPL’s Near Earth Object web site:

    There is no planet Nibiru, and the no scientist has ever seriously believed otherwise.

    The Mayans did not predict the world would end in 2012; instead, their calendar simply begins a new 5125-year cycle at that point.

    The asteroid Apophis will absolutely not collide with any part of the Earth or the moon in 2012. There is an extremely low probability (the odds are currently placed at less than 1 in 45000) that it will collide with the Earth on April 13th, 2036. This prediction relies on repeated observations of the asteroid by astronomers worldwide, enough to accurately determine its orbit relative to the Earth. In 2013, we will be able to make more measurements to refine its orbit even further, and extend our predictions out several more decades.

  • Jansen J:

    Asteroid Apophis will miss us in 2029 and again in 2036.

    Planet Nibiru and Planet X is a made-up planet; there’s no scientific evidence to merit it’s existence.

    Most people believe, that when refering to Nibiru or Planet X, we’re really talking about Jupiter.

    On Dec 21st, 2012, I will more concerned about making sure I get everyone christmas gifts, not the end of the world.

  • SPORTS FANATIC:

    First of all, they’re a DEAD ANCIENT CIVILIATION WHOSE RITUALS ARE RARELY, IF NOT, NOT EVEN PRACTICED TODAY. Second, it’s not going to hit us. Gosh danggit people, get your facts straight. Quit being so arrogant and do a little research.

  • Jack T:

    Forget it. 99942 Apophis is not going to hit us. It’s a very low chance of it hitting us, and all these stupid doom merchants keep implying that we’re all doomed.

  • jack:

    These are wild estimates
    1.99942(apophis) has a one in a million chance of hitting us
    2. Nibiru, wtf????? if somethin was gonna hit us in 4 years, wouldn’t we be able to see it

    Please read up on apophis, they have never said that apophis is gonna hit the ice caps. If this asteroid were to hit, it would hit the pacific ocean

  • Kay T:

    People have been predicting the end of the world every few years throughout history and we’ve passed every one. Look at the one predicting the end at the millennium. The end was also predicted for the previous millennium.

    The predicted 2012 Doomsday, was taken from the fact that the Mayans only carried their calendar out to December 21, 2012. They didn’t predict the end of the world, only the end of an age. The Mayan calendar was divided into “ages”. The Mayan civilization ended hundred of years before 2012, so if they had intended to make any extensions for new ages, they never got back to it. All the information below is to show that there is currently no asteroid collision expected during the 21st century with any of the known asteroids, whether Apophis, Niburu, or planet X.

    Apophis Asteroid (2004 MN4)
    After issuing an unprecedented “yellow alert” for a potential cosmic collision, astronomers said further observations showed that a recently discovered asteroid had no chance of hitting Earth in the year 2029.

    Monday’s announcement, issued by the Near Earth Object Program at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, capped a high-priority search for data about the space rock, which was discovered in June 2004 and designated 2004 MN4 (later named Apophis).
    Fortunately, the alert led astronomers to check their archives for images of the asteroid that might have gone unnoticed at the time. Guided by the latest data about 2004 MN4′s orbit, the Arizona-based Spacewatch Project spotted the rock on five images made back on March 15, said Donald Yeomans, manager of the Near Earth Object Program.

    “When we added those five observations, the impact probability in 2029 went to zero,” Yeomans told MSNBC.com.
    The 2029 event is still worthy of note, however, because it could rank among Earth’s closest encounters with a potentially hazardous asteroid observed in modern times. Yeoman said the minimum distance would be 10 to 12 Earth radii — which translates to 40,000 to 48,000 miles, or 64,000 to 77,000 kilometers.

    “It’s going to be quite impressive,” Yeomans said.
    “However, our current risk analysis for 2004 MN4 indicates that no subsequent Earth encounters in the 21st century are of any concern,” Yeomans and his colleague, Paul Chodas, said in the advisory sounding the all-clear.

    As for Niburu (Planet X), it was originally claimed that it was to hit Earth in 2003 (see below). It didn’t happen, so the people dreaming up the Doomsday hoaxes moved it out to Dec. 21, 2012 to coincide with the end of the Mayan calendar.

    A New Myth Rising on the Internet. dated 1/17/2002

    This new myth claims that Planet X, some believe is Zechariah Sitchen’s long-period planet Nibiru, is entering our solar system and interacting and causing changes to other planets as well as our sun and is due to pass through Earth’s orbit sometime in the year 2003. One of the alarmists who is predicting catastrophe for our good old Terra Firma is Mark Hazlewood, a guest on last night’s Art Bell show.
    Many point to the discovery of Object 2001 KX76, a fairly large minor planet, a recent find in the Kuiper Belt among other minor planetoids found on the solar system’s outer perimeter. KX76 is estimated to be the size of Pluto’s moon Charon.
    See: http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.go v/apod/ap010830.html
    Sitchen’s description of Nibiru depicts a much larger body, a planet larger than Mars, mayber larger than Earth. KX76 is only about 900 km in diameter and only the size of a small moon so it is baffling how this can be confused with the description of Nibiru.

    There is also no data on KX76 leaving the company of the Kuiper belt and entering the inner solar system.
    We have seen no convincing evidence that a large planet is going to intersect the Earth’s orbit in 2003. If anyone has any reference to hard scientific data that disproves this, feel free to speak out.

    Evidently, doomsdayers are not daunted and are already making survival plans for the coming catastrophe of 2003. Please be prudent when hearing these extraordinary claims and ask for evidence before acting on such alarms.

    NASA’s words, not mine:
    I hope this is my last comment on the Nibiru hoax, but questions like the above six keep coming in. Most of the entries on the Internet about Nibiru are false. Wikipedia has it correct when they write that “Nibiru is a name in Sumerian, Babylonian astrology associated with the god Marduk, generally accepted as referring to the planet Jupiter.” The rest is a hoax, including all the “stuff” questioner #1 found on the internet. Questioners #2 and #3 mention the astronomical observatory at the South Pole, but I assure you these astronomers are not looking at Nibiru. The Antarctic is a great place for astronomical infrared and short-wave-radio observations, and it also has the advantage that objects can be observed continuously without the interference of the day-night cycle. If the questioner really thinks that Nibiru is visible in the daytime in the southern hemisphere, they are very confused; this sort of statement is obviously false.

    If you read all this, you will see that these are scares that have nothing to back them up.

  • thorkonnatzbv:

    Simply said, you are wrong.

    The mayan calender doesn’t predict Nibiru, and there are NO Scientist who believe in Nibiru, much less it hitting the earth.
