Default Le ciel vas nous tomber sur la tete!...

https://www.thenational.ae/uae/scien...teors-1.877579

Quote:
This week our planet will cut across a vast swarm of meteors, including some big enough to wipe out a major city with the violence of a nuclear weapon.

Known as the Taurid Complex, the cosmic debris has already been implicated in the Tunguska Event of June 30, 1908, when a huge meteor exploded over Siberia unleashing the power of 1,000 Hiroshima atomic bombs.

Now Earth is about to make its closest approach to the same swarm since June 1975, when instruments put on the moon by the Apollo missions detected enormous numbers of meteors pummelling our nearest celestial neighbour for several days.

Exactly what will happen over the coming days is unknown, but astronomers around the world are preparing to observe the contents of the Taurid Complex as the planet sweeps through.

The plan is to peer into the cloud of debris looking for meteors similar in size to the 100-metre wide object responsible for the Tunguska Event.

By determining the orbit of such objects, astronomers believe they can identify those on a collision course Earth early enough to take action against them.

They also hope to test the theory that the Taurid Complex is just the remnant of a colossal comet-like object that entered the solar system thousands of years ago and whose disintegration still poses a threat to our planet.
Quote:
While no object capable of global devastation has yet been identified, some astronomers believe the Taurid Complex may harbour meteors capable of repeating the Tunguska Event of 1908.

Hurtling in at over 100,000kph, the giant meteor was torn apart as it entered the Earth’s atmosphere. Eye-witnesses reported feeling the heat of the fireball, and being knocked off their feet by the blast, which devastated thousands of square kilometres of Siberia near the Tunguska River.

Gale-force winds struck towns across Russia, while seismic stations from the United States to Java in Indonesia detected a massive disturbance that shook the whole planet.

Because it took place over a remote part of the world, there were no casualties. If repeated over a more densely populated region or near a coast, however, the resulting blast or tsunami would be catastrophic.

Concern that the Tunguska Event could re-occur has been mounting for decades. In 1947 astronomers at Britain’s Jodrell Bank radio telescope near Manchester discovered a shower of meteors which Earth encountered at the same time each year as the Tunguska object.

Quote:
During the 1980s, British astronomers Dr Victor Clube and Dr Bill Napier of the University of Oxford argued that the best explanation for all these events was that a giant comet around 100km across entered the solar system and has been breaking apart ever since, leaving a vast trail of debris through which Earth passes each year on its way around the Sun.

Most of these encounters result in nothing more than some small meteors entering Earth’s atmosphere during daylight and burning up harmlessly.

However, some of the debris is predicted to form huge swarms gathered together by the combined gravity of Earth and Jupiter.

This so-called Taurid Resonant Swarm is expected to harbour much more debris and potentially Tunguska-sized objects posing a significant impact risk to Earth.

Support for the existence of the TRS emerged in 2015, when a team of European astronomers predicted an encounter with part of the swarm and recorded over 140 fireballs shooting through the Earth’s atmosphere.

The team, led by Dr Pavel Spurny of the Ondrejov Observatory in the Czech Republic, also found evidence that the swarm contains two objects code-named 2015 TX24 and 2005 UR.

At 200 or 300 metres across, both are far more massive than the Tunguska object. Entering the atmosphere at huge speeds, even their disintegration in mid-air would trigger a blast capable of wiping out a large city.

Reporting their findings in the journal Astronomy and Astrophysics in 2017, the team concluded that the risk of such events makes detailed observation of the TRS “extremely important”.

This week’s close encounter gives astronomers their best chance yet to find out what lurks inside the swarm.

If Tunguska-scale objects are found, astronomers will add them to their watch-list of Potentially Hazardous Objects, which currently numbers over 1,900 comets and asteroids on orbits that could pose a threat to Earth.

Im sure the odds are in the millions to one but still. Looking forward to the results of those observations. I find it funny in that Ive been reading those Asterix cartoons with that old myth in it of the sky is falling since I was a kid. It was probably based on historical experiences, likely from the Taurids, in ancient history...

Graphs here show that we most likely discovered all the big ones: just 156 and that number is not increasing anymore. Makes sense, it's not like >1km asteroid can hide behind some planet and avoid detection for very long.

Smaller ones: number is about 1900 and increasing, but I wouldn't worry about them too much. With a proper warning, it's like preparing for hurricane: evacuate the area, etc.

Yeah it'll be fine.
Anything that gets through is just gonna burn up in the atmosphere and the resulting asteroid wont be bigger than a chihuahua's head.

Well Tunguska was a ~50-100m wide rock... and that flattened 2000 km2. Not sure they know all the ones that are that small as the albedo is quite weak when it gets that small.

Its why they will look at the beta Taurid rocks after they pass us to get the sun on their backsides.

Who needs rock when you already have heat sur la tete!:

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-48795264

Quote:
France has hit its highest recorded temperature - 45.9C (114.6F) - amid a heatwave in Europe that has claimed several lives.

The new record was measured in the southern town of Gallargues-le-Montueux. Before this year the previous record was 44.1C during a heatwave in 2003 that killed thousands.

Health Minister Agnès Buzyn has said "everyone is at risk".

France's weather service has issued an unprecedented red alert for four areas.

Those are all in the south, but most of the country remains on orange alert, the second highest level.

The sky really did fall yesterday afternoon in Montana. Like gravel-sized hail and rain with 40+ mph wind. It was like being sandblasted. Had quite a bit of damage to my driveway.
