    Better think again. A 60 meter asteroid can easily produce an explosion in a 10-megatonnes range. Not so much the size (mass) as the velocity decides the kinetic energy.

    Tunguska event for example is believed to have been caused by approximately 50 meters large asteroid and it yielded ~10 MT! I dare not think of consequences such a thing hits some densely populated area (or the ocean where tsunamis could be created).

    Not really. It is not big enough to displace that much water and a air burst would not create a wave.

    Itīs still in the green of the Torino scale.

    actually 60m asteriod is not of much worry as there are necessary techs available to take care of it.Image a 1km dia asteroid or worse a 10km dia asteroid..then what would you do??

    nigga's please ....

    A 10-meter body typically has the kinetic energy of about five nuclear warheads of the size dropped on Hiroshima, however, and the shock wave it creates can do considerable damage even if nothing but comparatively small fragments survive to reach the ground.
    so 60 meter asteroid can make quite a stir ....

    I have already accepted my mistake....read post number # 24

    [*******#333333]actually i am sorry for misreading 60 meters as 6 meters....actually that Arizona and Indian lunar lake crater were somewhere around 50-60m in dia which yielded 10-15 mt of TNT.[/COLOR]

    [*******#333333]So even a 50 m asteroid can unleash catastrophe[/COLOR]

    India already has the tech for ASAT as well as ABM.Out agni 5 ICBM can take the ***** out of that asteroid.

    actually,nothing to worry, India has anti ballistic missiles and almost all of Pakistan's missile can be neutralized.


    Besides i believe the minuteman is perfect(with it's proven track record) for the asteroid.

    I say, just let the Asteroid hit earth and lets start all over. The worlds over populated as it is right?

    Some say a comet will fall from the sky.
    Followed by meteor showers and tidal waves.
    Followed by faultlines that cannot sit still.
    Followed by millions of dumbfounded dip****s.

    Some say the end is near.
    Some say we'll see armageddon soon.
    I certainly hope we will, cuz'
    I sure could use a vacation from this

    Stupid ****
    Silly ****
    Stupid ****
    I suggest everyone learn to swim or bring some arm floaties
