    This just missed us. Well in astronomical terms it was a near miss. It's 3 miles long.



    It would wipe everything out and leave the planet to the emerging robot bastards I have documented so accurately.

    Yes Nod that is extremely close.

    Close enough to film.

    That's only about 4 times further than our moon.

    It is quite hard to grasp stellar distances but if you understand that Mars is about 60 million miles away (sometimes), a distance that is considered close in astronomical terms then yeah... 4 is pretty near.

    Blimey...close shave.

    Bet there is plenty of stuff going on out there that we mere mortals don't know about.

    When we are shown representations of the asteroid belt it looks pretty solid and the sort of thing an imaginary spaceship could evade capture in but in fact each asteroid is a good million miles apart but in space-distance it may as well be as dense as a privet hedge.

    Like Einstein said 'it's all relative'

    Very Happy

    The term 'near miss' is relative.

    NASA GRAIL mission ends with twin moon smashes...


    Update: Engineers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., have received confirmation that the twin GRAIL spacecraft have, as planned, completed their impact into the moon.

    Update: The twin spacecraft of NASA’s GRAIL mission have completed their final rocket burns. Their pre-planned lunar impact is expected at about 2:28 p.m. PST (5:28 EST).

    Ebb and Flow -- the two twin spacecraft of NASA's Gravity Recovery and Interior Laboratory (GRAIL) mission -- have begun their final rocket burns. They are scheduled to impact the moon at around 2:28 p.m. PST (5:28 EST).

    NASA is providing live commentary of the pre-planned lunar surface impacts by GRAIL beginning at 2 p.m. PST (5 p.m. EST) Monday, Dec. 17. The event will be broadcast on NASA Television and streamed on the agency's website. For NASA TV streaming video, schedule and downlink information, visit: http://www.nasa.gov/ntv . The coverage will also be streamed live on Ustream at: http://www.ustream.tv/nasajpl2 .

    The two probes will hit a mountain near the lunar north pole, bringing their successful prime and extended science missions to an end. The two probes are being sent purposely into the moon because they no longer have enough altitude or fuel to continue science operations. 



    Commentary will originate from the GRAIL control room at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. Coverage will last about 35 minutes and include live interviews with GRAIL team members.

    GRAIL's final resting place on the moon will be in shadow at the time of impact, so no video documentation of the impacts is expected. GRAIL data are allowing scientists to learn about the moon's internal structure and composition in unprecedented detail. Join the conversation on Twitter by following the hashtag #GRAIL.

    Yeah, but this place is like a microcosm. It's still a man's world outside.
