Experts from US and European space agencies participated in a simulation to stop an asteroid discovered approaching the earth that could hit within six months. They failed, with the asteroid decimating Europe.
Scientists from around the world attended the weeklong exercise led by NASA in which they faced a hypothetical scenario: An asteroid 35 million miles away was approaching the planet and could hit within six months.
With each passing day of the exercise, the participants learned more about the asteroid’s size, trajectory, and chance of impact.
Then they had to cooperate and use their technical knowledge to see if anything could be done to stop the space rock. The experts fell short.
The participants in the simulation considered various missions in which spacecraft could try to destroy the asteroid or deflect it off its path.
But they concluded that such missions wouldn’t be able to get off the ground in the short time before the asteroid’s impact.
The group determined that none of Earth’s existing technologies could stop the asteroid from striking given the six-month time frame of the simulation. In this alternate reality, the asteroid crashed into eastern Europe.
They say an estimated two-thirds of asteroids 460 feet in size or bigger – large enough to wreak considerable havoc – remain undiscovered. That’s why NASA and other agencies are attempting to prepare for such a situation.
The world’s ability to surveil near-Earth objects is woefully incomplete. And NASA thinks that we’ve only found about a third of the population of asteroids that are out there that could represent an impact hazard to the Earth.
The Revelation prophecies foretell that an asteroid looking like a great mountain burning with fire is coming that will not miss earth causing a deep impact with the shock wave and resulting tsunami causing chaos and destruction.
The Biblical prophecies (Luke 21, Revelation 6, Revelation 8) foretell that in the Last Days there will be signs in the heavens including asteroids that cause a Biblical cataclysm on earth.
These events and conditions happening now are warning signs pointing to the nearing fulfillment of the Last Days prophecies at the end of this age revealing it’s time to prepare now for the nearing appearance of Jesus Christ for His Church by being born again spiritually into the Kingdom of God as Jesus said we must (John 3) and His Apostles who were authorized (Matthew 16:19) described how (Acts 2, Acts 10, Acts 19).
